Mohammad Ali's trainer Dundee passes away after heart attack

Washington, Thu, 02 Feb 2012 ANI

Washington, Feb 2(ANI): Legendary American boxing trainer Angelo Dundee has died of a heart attack.


Dundee, 90, was earlier taken to a Florida hospital after suffering a blood clot.


"He was recuperating and coming along quite well. He was already making plans to (go) to Las Vegas for another event in two weeks. Thankfully, the whole family was with him. We have lost a great man," Dundee's son said.


"My dad led a wonderful life. Sadly, many of the great people from that generation are gone. This is the end of an era," he added.


Dundee will be largely remembered as Mohammad Ali's trainer, guiding him from his early days as a professional to winning the world heavyweight title thrice, The Daily Express reports.


He will be also remembered in England for his role in Ali's victory over British icon Henry Cooper at Wembley in 1963.


Dundee guided the successes of the likes of Willie Pastrano, Jose Napoles, Jimmy Ellis, George Foreman and, famously, 'Sugar' Ray Leonard.


He is survived by a son and daughter, six grandchildren and a great grandchild. (ANI)
