A few words remembering Angelo Dundee:

Angelo Dundee was one of the greatest trainers in the history of boxing.  I have never met a person more committed to their profession than Angelo, and his passion showed by the champions he trained.  He made many friends during his life, as he gave generously of his time and spirit to those in need.  Everybody had so much love, respect, and admiration for him.  I will miss Angelo, but I will never forget him as I will thank God for the time I had with him.

This picture was taken at the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame last year, as they honored Angelo for his life’s work.

There is a saying in this country; if you don’t pull for the Dodgers you may not make it to heaven.

Angelo is definitely there.
