Super heavyweight event of the 1995 Pan American Games was tarnished by the absence of Cuban legend Roberto Balado, the 1992 Olympic champion, who was winning only gold medals at all events since October 1990, and was one of the most probable finalists if participated, but died in a car crash a year prior to the event. He was substituted by Leonardo Martínez Fiz.[1]
