Stefan Redl was born in Heregsalva, Hungary on March 5, 1933. Stefan was the only boy in a family of three. His father Frank and mother Katherine were of German descent. His father served in the Hungarian Army during World War II and in 1942 was reported missing in action. The Redl’s never gave up hope that Frank would return when the war was over. Sadly, Stefan’s father never did return from the war. Under Carl Duva’s guidance, Stefan turned pro on April 20, 1956 in Patterson, NJ with a first round knockout over Wilmer Bonney. As Stefan began building his record to an impressive 11-0-0 (9) he also started the process to become an American citizen and joined the New Jersey National Guard. Redl fought from 1956 until 1963. He met some of the important welterweights of the era including: Vince Martinez, Gil Turner, Tony DeMarco, Virgil Akins, Don Fullmer and Curtis Cokes. He retired with a final mark of 36-16-4.
