Dundee was a rare individual and a great trainer. Big loss here. May he rest in peace.

RIP to a great man who trained and molded many great fighters. i'm glad he got to spend one last time with Mr. Ali for his 70th birthday.

Agree with all of the previous posts - boxing lost a legend. R.I.P.

RIP. Dude had a good run at 90 years. Some would say that without him, maybe Ali wouldnt have become so great. Sure, Ali is the GREATEST, but lets not forget the impact trainers have on fighters.

Manny would not be so great if not for Freddie Roach.
Tyson would probably STILL be champion had he not fired Kevin Rooney.

Actually, now that I think about it, there were a LOT of times Ali went in and did his own thing and ingnored his trainer. So maybe Dundee wasnt as great as I alluded to.

A great trainer, and interesting man. What a team Angelo Dundee and Muhammad Ali
were! This is a sad time for boxing. Joe Frazier, now Angelo. Ali must be so sad to lose
his greatest opponent, and now his old trainer so close together. RIP Mr Dundee.
