    RIP Teofilo Stevenson...

    Died a few days ago in Havana of heart attack. Probably the greatest amatuer Heavyweight of all time. 3-time Olympic God Medalist. I always wondered what he would be like if he went pro.

    Just 60 years old.

    Can't believe he turned down millions of $ to fight Ali back in the early 70's. He said,"What is a million dollars worth compared to the love of eight million Cubans?" Castro hooked him up with a beautiful mansion and compensation for his loyalty.
