Was he really any good as an amateur?

He must have been pretty damn good....he won a lot of championships.
He was KO'd by Teofilo Steveson, but so was every heavyweight in the 70's.

I had heard he won the Olympic Trials, but someone else mentioned that he got kayoed by Emory Chapman in the Golden Gloves and that Dokes had beaten him at some point.For some reason, Stevenson and Page never hooked up.
