I think his last project was going to be Atilla Levin, but he really didnt have much of a fighting heart when he moved up the ranks. Obviously Ali and Leonard were his big names, but hes got a whole laundry list of champions that hes worked with. I remember the day we were contacted by Mike Tysons people to possibly train him. I was really excited at the chance to possibly work with Mike during his comeback.
Sweet story.

I remember him working with a Scandinavian light heavy back then, too. The guy was talented but kept getting KO'd when he stepped up. I forget his name.

I got to admit I used to underrate Angelo, mostly due to his involvement with Ali when Ali should not have been fighting.
