Dundee was the man behind Cassius Clay becoming the greatest boxer of the age before he became Muhammad Ali, and also managed and trained Sugar Ray Leonard to his greatest fight against Tommy Hearns,

Probably the person more or less behind the character of Mick in the Rocky movies, Dundee was aman who several times saved boxing from becoming a petty sport by his very presence. He seemed like a helluva guy.

90 years old. The guy saw Joe Louis, Rocky Marciana, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson - all at their primes. Wow.

I'd swap out Uruguay and Serbia for Algeria and Slovenia. Serbia in particular could surprise a few people, although Vidic looks increasingly human for Manoo these days so they might not be as strong defensively as they could be.
