HAVANA, Cuba (AP) –

Cuban boxer Teofilo Stevenson, the three-time Olympic heavyweight champion with a devastating right hand and a gentlemanly demeanor, has died. He was 60.

“The Cuban sporting family was moved today by the passing of one of the greatest of all time,” said a statement read on the news last night. He died of heart disease, it added.

Stevenson was considered by some to be the most accomplished amateur boxer in history. He first won gold in 1972 in Munich and followed that up in 1976 at Montreal and a third in Moscow in 1980.
