Default Re: R.I.P Angelo Dundee

These icons of boxing are now getting very thin on the ground.

Angelo was a class act and a great guy and one of the few who surrounded Ali that genuinely cared imo.

I loved hearing his opinion on things and enjoyed his colour commentary he provided on fights back in the day.

A true boxing legend even though he never fought.

Sad day when another historical figure in boxing passes away. Imagine all the great stories he must have told. Including the Ali-Leonard legacies, Dundee was a part of boxing history. Rest In Peace bud.

Question Re: R.I.P Angelo Dundee

Wow, this is a shock in some ways, even though I knew he was 90.
That says a lot about his personality.

One of the greatest men in the boxing business, ever.

R.I.P.

I'am genuinly stuck for words for once as this is such a shock as you never expect these guys to pass on. I've been most fortunate to have met Mr Dundee on a couple of occasions over the years & what a gentleman he was, always had time for the star struck fan! Always stayed & answed all & any questions however daft. A great interacter with the man on main street, old school manners with a ready genuine smile & the patience of a saint. I'am so glad i had the privalige of meeting him 1st time back in 1990 ringside for Chavez/Taylor 1 & that memory is now more enhanced & embedded than ever.

R.I.P.

One of the last links to a golden era of the sport has gone. A man who had mainstream appeal, but still kept the majority of hardcore boxing fans on side. Classy and great, a sad loss.
