Igor’s father was on his back – made him practice several hours a day. Igor noticed that he had power to bite hard, so he became involved and started playing more seriously.

In summer 1973, the first awaited-for meeting of Vysotsky and Stevenson took place on the International Tournament in Havana. The fighting was dedicated to the revolutionary Cordova Cardin. Both sportsmen got through the final round, and the fight promised to be spectacular.
