RIP Angelo Dundee
Legendary cornerman passed away today. He was 90. Damn, he will be missed.

Hopefully, SRL won't come in to the funeral as a hypocrite after what he said in his book. Both DUndee and Leonard had a little falling out over the years.They both argued in their books about how much he was paid. Dundee felt he was disrespected when his earnings were capped at $150,000 after the Benitez fight.
Leonard implied that he was the cash cow for Dundee after Ali was gone. In addition, Leonard said Dundee had little impact on his overall trainning, claiming that DUndee was best utilized in the corner.
Dundee will be missed both inside and outside the ring.

r.i.p Mr Dundee.
I liked this comment from his son:
"Greatness is grasping the moment. Dad grasped all the moments."
