Time: Angelo Dundee Dead at 90

Angelo Dundee Dead at 90

Angelo Dundee, the brilliant motivator who worked the corner for Muhammad Ali in his greatest fights and willed Sugar Ray Leonard to victory in his biggest bout, died Wednesday in Tampa, Fla. He was 90.

The genial Dundee was best known for being in Ali's corner for almost his entire career, but those in boxing also knew him as an ambassador for boxing and a figure of integrity in a sport that often lacked it.

He died with his family surrounding him, said son, Jimmy Dundee, but not before being able to attend Ali's 70th birthday bash in Louisville, Ky., last month

Snatched away in the prime of his life.....

I was obviously too young to experience Ali's prime, but I definitely remember him with Leonard. He was obviously the kind of trainer who let his fighter's skills dictate and not the way he thought his fighters should fight.

The thing I remember most clearly is working in Foreman's corner during his comeback years. He kept calling Foreman (in his mid 40s) "son" and "kid," which was just fantastic.

A very smart man who had the great fortune of working with 2 of the smartest fighters ever. Leonard had no business stepping in the ring with Hagler, Hearns and Duran from a physical standpoint. Hagler in particular may have been the greatest boxer ever at the moment Leonard fought him. Yet Leonard and Dundee beat them all.
