Chordale Booker credits an unexpected supporter for saving his life - the Honorable Judge White. At 18, he was facing a minimum 13 years for gun and narcotics charges when the Judge sentenced him to 3 years probation. Booker found his second chance in the ring and became a highly decorated amateur fighter and Olympic hopeful before turning pro. He has mentored at-risk youth through his Foundation and is a fixture with youth and gun violence programs throughout the State. In 2022, Booker was rewarded with a full Pardon.

2023 has been an active and transformative year of boxing for Chordale. Coming off of the only loss of his career in 2022, Booker went back to the drawing board with his team. In January 2023, he shook off the ring rust and won by unanimous decision. On April 22nd, Booker won the WBC US Title with a 4th round knockout in front of an electric home crowd at Mohegan Sun. He returned to Mohegan Sun on August 12th to defend the belt as the headliner of CES' Summer Heat card. Booker dazzled a fan-filled crowd in his first main event and title defense by delivering another huge knockout (RD 7)! Two months later, Booker traveled to the Dominican Republic for a quick 2nd round TKO, and his 4th win of 2023.
