Angelo Dundee RIP...

he was 90 years old.

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.

My father was a prize fighter way back when.  He taught me how to score fights and he also taught me how to fight.  My mother was not always too happy about that.  I remember Sugar Ray Robinson and Carmen Basilio, Chuck Davey, Chico Vejar, Kid Gavilan, Gene Fullmer, Johnny Saxton, Tony DeMarco,  and Charlie Powell.  And they all remember Angelo...

RIP Angelo
