Stevenson was an amateur and is considered by many to be one of the greatest heavyweights of all-time.
When it comes to boxing history, and true history, Cuba may trump a lot of the other nations on this list.
Cuban boxing, both amateur and professional, is legendary throughout Latin America and the world.
The best professional of them all to come from the island nation is without a doubt Gerardo Gonzalez, who is better known as Kid Gavilan.
Gavilan won the world welterweight title and faced many great fighters, including Sugar Ray Robinson, Bobo Olson and Carmen Basilio, whom he defeated.
Eligio Sardiñas Montalvo, also known as the real Kid Chocolate, held a world championship for several years en route to winning 135 professional fights.
While many historians consider Jose Napoles to be one of Mexico's greatest fighters, he was in fact born in Cuba, where he spent his early career.
Just this past summer, the sport lost perhaps the greatest Cuban fighter of all time in highly decorated amateur heavyweight Teofilo Stevenson.
Stevenson was considered one of the best heavyweights of all time despite never turning pro. He also won three Olympic gold medals.
He amassed an amazing 302 wins compared to just 22 defeats in a career that made him perhaps the most famous Cuban athlete of all time.
