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.

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Yes, Hopkins gave Trinidad the beating of a lifetime, but Mayorga is hardly a Bernard Hopkins. As Moe pointed out, I just can't see El Matador coming up two weight classes and really being able to bomb with a guy like Tito.
