Winner — William Bonac

Bonac’s appearance at the Boston Pro Show was unexpected. A week prior, he took second to Brandon Curry at the 2022 Arnold Classic. Riding what could be considered one of his better packages, Bonac decided to enter the Boston Pro last minute and capitalize on his impressive physique.

Compared to Ohio, Bonac looked a bit leaner. He’s always carried a lot of dense muscle and knows how to present his physique through thoughtful and artful posing. Every judge placed him in first.

This was Bonac’s first victory since winning the 2020 Arnold Classic, and it’s his sixth career pro win. He will now move on to the 2022 Olympia in Las Vegas, NV, scheduled for the weekend of Dec. 16-18, where he hopes to improve on his sixth-place finish at the 2021 contest.

Second Place — Justin Rodriguez

One week prior to this contest, Rodriguez placed fourth in the Arnold Classic, one place behind third-place finisher Steve Kuclo.

It’s not clear what adjustments Rodriguez made in preparing for this show, but whatever he did worked because he leapfrogged Kuclo to finish as the runner-up in Boston. When he performed his individual routine, he held each pose for several seconds, which gave the judges a great opportunity to evaluate him. His posing combined with his confidence may have been why he was placed in the number two spot.

Third Place — Steve Kuclo

Kuclo remained one of the largest competitors on the stage. He usually always is. After placing third at the Arnold a week prior — his best Arnold finish to date — Kuclo was undoubtedly hoping for first place and an automatic Olympia qualification. However, Bonac’s dominance and Rodriguez’s tweaks were enough to keep “The King Snake” out of striking distance. 

Other Division Results

Counting the Men’s Open, seven pro divisions were featured at the Boston Pro.
