Legendary trainer Angelo Dundee passed away earlier today at the age of 90 in Tampa, Florida. “Angelo died suddenly and peacefully surrounded by family and friends,” Dundee’s friend Rachel Charles told “He was very happy he was able to celebrate Muhammad Ali’s birthday was able to attend the Boxing Hall of Fame. He still had a lot to do but led a full and extraordinary life.” Dundee trained 15 world champions including Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, George Foreman, Willie Pastrano, Jose Napoles and Carmen Basilio. Last September Angie celebrated the grand opening of the new 5th Street Gym in Miami Beach, mere steps away from where the fabled gym once stood. Angelo and his brother, Hall of Fame promoter Chris Dundee, opened the original gym in 1951.
