Stevenson, one of the only three boxers in the world to win three titles at Olympic Games, along Cuban Felix Savon and Hungarian Lazlo Papp, was accompanied in this tour by another legendary Cuban boxer, Jose Gomez, Moscow Olympic Champion.
These two sport stars are travelling along a sportspeople delegation, talking to the residents in this region, finding out about the current stage of repairs and bringing hope to the victims of the meteors.
This delegation visited the eastern Las Tunas municipalities Jesus Menendez and Puerto Padre, severely battered in September by Hurricane Ike, and Guayabal coastal town in Amancio Rodriguez municipality.
