    Teofilo Stevenson - RIP

    Cuban boxer Teofilo Stevenson was one of the greatest boxers I have ever witnessed. I would have loved to have seen him fight Ali or Frazier. He was dominating with his right hand, but would have hoped the American boxers would have beaten him.

    He was one of the best I have ever witnessed.

    He was one of the best boxers of all time. Didn't he win three Olympic gold medals? No one could come close to beating him. Just a real shame he couldn't get away from Cuba and fight professionally.

    Here's a link I went back and found. Picture for you Kitty.
    He did win three gold medals. 1972,76 and 80. Cuba boycotted the 84 games or he may have won four. Too bad he and Ali never fought.

    Thanks for the pic! I had a major crush on him and Alberto Juantorena (both Cubans)...
