A promising heavyweight prospect in the early 1960s, in only five years, Miteff took eight titles in three classes: middleweight, lightweight and heavyweight. But he was no match for Clay. He suffered a brutal beating at the hands of Clay and was still trying to figure out what happened to him back in his dressing room when he asked his trainer "Did Cassius Clay knock me out?" He attempted a comeback in the late 60's, but was knocked out by Jerry Quarry. In 1962, though still boxing professionally, he played a small part in the movie "Requiem for a Heavyweight".
