Adieu, Jean Claude!10 August 2019
A famous French champion, Jean Claude Bouttier, died prematurely at the age of 74. He was European middleweight champion and twice challenger to Carlos Monzon’s world title.
Jean Claude also boasts a victory over the great Emil Griffith. After an extraordinary career in the ring, Jean Claude was a respected television reporter.
On behalf of the EUBC and my personal, I would like to send to the Bouttier family, to the French Boxing Federation and to the many fans who have never forgotten him, the most heartfelt condolences.
