Photos: Cuba Bids Teary Farewell To Teofilo Stevenson

Stevenson, hailed as one of the best boxers of his time though he never turned professional, died on June 11 at the age of 60 of a heart attack. Stevenson dominated world amateur boxing for 14 years and became the first fighter to win the Olympic gold medal in the same division three times.
