West German boxer Hans Huber from Regensburg originally played soccer in his youth, and then became a wrestler and claimed two silvers in 1956 and 1960 at the West German nationals. As he did not have any chance to win against legend [Wilfried Dietrich] he moved to boxing in 1961.

Huber won a surprising silver medal in the heavyweight class at the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, only losing a closely fought bout against future legend [Joe Frazier]. For this, Huber was awarded the Silver Bay Leaf, the highest sports award in Germany. In 1963 he was West German champion, losing that year in the quarter-finals at the Europeans. By profession, Huber was a bus driver.
