Angelo Dundee, R. I. P.

NY Daily News: Angelo Dundee, the famed trainer most noted for his work with Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard, died at his home in Tampa surrounded by his family on Wednesday. He was 90.

“He was a giant of a man, a history maker,” promoter Don King said. “He stood up in spite of and not because of. The most amazing thing about Angelo was that he could get along with anyone. He was the personification of walking in another man’s shoes.”
