Forget the money, Your are one of the top boxers, athletes, Heavyweight Champions of all time. A true role model for the sport of boxing. Seeing you fight was poetry in motion, you're victories made Latin America proud!!! God Bless!!
( Teo ); you, were, a great, ( Boxer ).
Great man - great politics - viva Cuba!
I think Teofilo Stevenson was a great boxer of high standards!May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
One of the greatest sportsmen of all time. Always conducted himself as a gentleman and a good sport. I enjoyed watching his bouts. Truly one of the greatest!
Please except my condolences.
God loves you. (John 3:16)
One of the greatest fighter of my time. He was a strong,talented, good looking fighter and a true gentlemen in and out of the ring.A true example of what a champion is. We will never know if he could beat Ali.He is a big loss to the Cuban people and to the world. May he rest in peace and he will be sadly missed.
As a kid I watched with my Dad all the boxing matches, you were always my favorite, a magnificent boxer, you stood so tall and straight and then B00M, they were down ! Sad to read this. Cuba must have been so proud of you.
Peace be in the hearts of all who t loved you and that Monsterous right hand.
great fighter in the amateur ranks would have been better as a pro, a young ali.that never became world champion.
I for one, would not have wanted to see Teofilo Stevenson and Muhammad Ali fight. Ali was always my favorite. If Ali had fought Stevenson, he (Ali)might not be still known today as "The Greatest."
Thank you Teofilo...rest in peace..Gordon Malella White Salmon,Wa.USA

To the the family of Teofil Stevenson - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that he will be missed by many.
He should be inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame. Everyone wanted to see him fight Ali. That was a dream ticket!
You were one heck of a fighter. Would have been one of the biggest $$ fights ever if you and Ali would have taken place. R.I.P.
he will be missed, i would have loved to see him and ali fight
rest in peace
I pray that this wonderful boxer was a believer in Christ above all, for there is champion IN the PRIZE of TRUE REWARD. Rest in GOD JESUS FOREVER HIS PEACE.
Best Heavyweight I ever saw.
I to tryed to make the 1972 olypic team but was not good enough but he was and a great champ. I always admired him.
One of the greatest fighters ever and a true sportsman. God Bless You and your family always.
WoW!!! What sucess may this brother rest in peace in Jesus I pray!!! I can see the love of GOD in this article!!!!
You have to admire a champion that remains faithful to his values...........and deserves the love of his countrymen----as compared to all of the athletes today that take the money, over indulge themselves and think they are entitled to "love"
A true hero has passed.
a true champion and loyal to his country not caught up in the world and love of money because he could have been next to muhammed ali the worlds greatest.
To the family of Teofilo Stevenson may God give you comfort and peace by means of prayer - Philipians 4:6,7. My deepest sympathy
Mr. Stevenson, thanks for all the good fights and gold medals you won for your country. I'm not cuban, but the cuban boxing fans just lost one of greater. Teofilo, MAY GOD REST YOUR SOUL IN PEACE. You always be a champ.
Stevenson Family, My condolences to the family on the loss of Teofilo. I used to watch him fight. He was very good. But, he was as a real Gentleman. Most fight are stuck on themselves, not thinking about anyone else. He was different. Remember the precious memories you have of him and keep them close to you hearts. May the God who gives peace be with all of you-RO. 15:33 Deepest Sympathy Dee
Always wondered what would have happened if Ali would have fought him-he had a deceiving right hand that didn't look all that impressive but sure put Duane Bobbick on back-R.I.P. to a great fighter.
