Canadian boxer David Dusang dies at 51


David Dusang, who was known as “The Jewish Bomber” during his boxing career in western Canada, died Nov. 17 at 51 in a car crash.

A welterweight, Dusang once was USA Boxing Mid-American titleholder. His professional record was 11-2 with six knockouts. His boxing shorts brandished a Magen David and the nickname, “The Jewish Bomber.”


After his boxing career, Dusang went into sports marketing. He was vice president of sales and marketing for the Toronto Blue Jays and negotiated the deal that changed the name of Toronto’s SkyDome baseball stadium to The Rogers Centre.

Boxing promoter Tommy Burns once said of him: “Dusang is one of the best fighters I’ve ever watched. He has great footwork, quick hands and lots of skill, but he’s too smart to be a boxer. He doesn’t like to get hit and when you stop and think about it, there is nothing wrong with that. You just have to find something else to do.”
