Terrible news. I'm saddened by this.

Teˇfilo was from my hometown in Cuba. I never met him, but some of my aunts and uncles knew him.

Stevenson was a hero of mine as a child. I remember watching him dismantle other heavyweights during the 1976 Olympics. He made me proud.

Teˇfilo is regarded as one of the greatest amateur boxers of all time, having won three Olympic gold medals. I don't know if he would've become world champion during the strong heavyweight era he fought in, but it's testament to his ability that his name is even mentioned.

Farewell, Teˇ. Thank you for the memories. And thank you for the pride you wrought in me.
