Very un-American... (51.21)

Grigor: I took from you. You didn't make a squeal or spill a tear. Very un-American.

Bobby: Would it have worked?

Grigor: Only to make me never think of you again. And somehow like the man, Teófilo Stevenson, you boxed your way out of the corner and found a way to cover your losses.

Teófilo Stevenson Lawrence (29 March 1952 – 11 June 2012) was a Cuban amateur boxer and engineer. Stevenson is one of only three boxers to win three Olympic gold medals, alongside Hungarian László Papp and fellow Cuban Félix Savón. The BBC described Stevenson as "Cuba's greatest boxer, once its most famous figure after Fidel Castro".
