FÉLIX SAVÓN FABRÉ :

Lazlo Papp was the first. Only two have been able to equal his deed: Teófilo Stevenson and Félix Savón. These three men are the only ones in the history of boxing to conquer three Olympic gold medals.
The latter (6'6''), born in the Guantanamo province, established this record in the games of Barcelona'92, Atlanta'96, and Sydney'00.
In addition, he holds six titles from his participation in the same amount of world championships, an unattainable figure to any other boxer since the instauration of this kind of competition, precisely in Havana, in 1974.
His life as a successful boxer totals 592 victories against 17 defeats, in 15 years in the summit of world class boxing, which he first reached in 1984.
Fourteen belts grant him the honor of being the highest winner in the traditional Giraldo Córdova Cardín tournaments. His showcases are full of medals won in Pan-american Games, Central American and Caribbean Games, World Cups, challenger matches, and other numberless tournaments where he took part, always in the heavyweight category.
Professor Alcides Sagarra Carón was his teacher inside and outside the ring. Nowadays, having 5 sons and daughters (four of them constituting two couples of twins) he acts as part of the training staff of the Cuban national boxing team.
Had it not existed the regulation that sets the maximum age of active boxers in 32 years, Félix Savón would still be obtaining the good results he had accustomed us to. In spite of that, he has already granted himself a position among the greatest of amateur boxing.
