How good would Felix Savon been if he had gone pro?
3 Time olympic champion, 6 time world champion, 3 time Pan American champion, and 4 time Central and Caribbean champion.
Beat such guys as Luan Krasniqi, Sultan Ibragimov, Shannon Briggs, and Lamon Brewster, and others.
.. or is the pro game a whole different one?

Not as good as Chagaev...........Without question though he would have given the best blowjob of any HW the division had ever seen.

Felix Savon is 44 years old, that means he would've been competing with the likes of Tyson, Holyfield and Lewis. Not much more needs to be said.
Teofilo Stephenson was another Cuban amateur legend. A similar tale could be told about him. He fought during the greatest heavyweight era of all time. Stephenson would've been competing with the likes of Ali, Frazier and Foreman.
As great as these two Cubans were, the odds aren't very good that they would've climbed to the very top of the professional ranks.

Its hard to say.
The thing with the Cubans is they stay amateur their whole life, whereas the guys they fight are up and comers who then turn pro.
Its like if a guy played college basketball for 15 years. He might dominate at that level because he's playing kids out of high school all the time but it wouldn't mean he would be a star in the NBA.
