Raoul Sarrazin took up boxing at a young age, inspired by his older brother Clement. After finding success as a flyweight and a featherweight, Raoul won his first Canadian national title in 1958 as a lightweight and captured it again as a light-welterweight in 1960. This led to his selection to represent Canada at the 1960 Rome Olympics, where he defeated Luxembourg’s Francois Sowa in round one before being disqualified in his fight against South Korean Kim Deuk-Bong. Less than one month after the Games, he fought in his first professional bout and went on to establish a record of 15-7-2, primarily between 1960 and 1964, with one bout in 1966 and two in 1969. He never contested a major title.
