Adam Faul

As one of Saskatchewan’s outstanding boxers, Adam Faul had an enviable record of winning 60 of 64 bouts. His impressive list of championships began in 1946 and by 1948 he reached the highlight of his career when he represented Canada at the London Olympics.

In 1946 Faul won the Saskatchewan light-heavyweight title. A year later he held both the Canadian light-heavyweight title and the provincial heavyweight championship. He won the Canadian Heavyweight Championship in both 1947 and 1948, and was the winner of the Western Canadian belt in 1948.

Faul’s unbeaten record ended in his second bout at the 1948 Olympics in his fight against Nils Nisson of Sweden. An accidental hit that resulted in a severe cut above his eye, not only broke Faul’s undefeated season, but also ended further competition in the games.

Installed in the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame on March 27, 1976.
