Legendary trainer Angelo Dundee has died in Florida, aged 90.
Dundee, famous for working alongside Muhammad Ali for 20 years, is reported to have had a heart attack after being taken to hospital with a blood clot.
He guided Ali through his greatest fights, including the “The Rumble in the Jungle” with George Foreman.
His son, Jimmy Dundee, said: “Thankfully, the whole family was with him. We have lost a great man. My dad led a wonderful life.”
While Dundee’s name was synonymous with Ali’s, he worked with 14 further world champions, including Sugar Ray Leonard, George Foreman and Jimmy Ellis, during a distinguished career.
But it was his partnership with Ali which became one of the most successful in boxing history. (BBC)
