Stephen Muchoki

Stephen ("Steve") Muchoki (born December 23, 1956) is a retired flyweight boxer from Kenya, who had an excellent career (197 wins, three losses) as an amateur. He won the silver medal at the inaugural 1974 World Amateur Boxing Championships in Havana, Cuba. The same year he captured the title at the 1974 Commonwealth Games in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Muchoki represented Kenya at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada, where he was eliminated in the first round. Two years later he won the world title at the 1978 World Amateur Boxing Championships in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, and the gold medal at the 1978 Commonwealth Games once again.
