    Duane bobick at the Olympics. Bobick had beaten Stevenson when they last fought and was pan american champion. It was one round a piece and in the third Stevenson knocked down bobick three times. It remains the most viewed sports event in Cuba TV history.

    Bobick had a solid professional career too going 38-0 beating guys like mike weaver eventually losing to Ken Norton. Teofilo should have turned pro.

    So should Igor, and Vysotsky probably takes him again.

    My favorite in that truncated affair with Big John Tate...he hits big John with a neat, perfect right hand...Tate turns away from Teo, takes a stroll across the ring to the ropes, then collapses...it was so poetic, concise and to the point.

    It kind of reminds me of round 15 of the Tate vs Weaver fight, John fell face first, took the full 10 count.

    Stevenson was a beast in the Olympics. He was not only better, he was much bigger and stronger than his opponents.

    The debate rages on as to what type of pro he would have been. I think Stevenson, born 1952 would have beaten Ali, born 1942 if they meet in the mid 1970's. He's probably best Frazier too.

    A pretty cool bike with tassles and a deck of cards for the wheels from his loving government in appreciation of his success.

    And I must say that Big John did indeed fall gracefully...not "awkwardly" as Jack Bodell and so many others would have done!

    Fidel Castro asked Roberto Duran about a fight between Stevenson and Ali, Duran's response? Ali would kill him. The meeting ended.

    When was this meeting? I think Stevenson would batter Ali, post Manilla.
