Elite Sports Marketing Signs Angelo Dundee
January 24, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsElite Sports Marketing announced on Friday (1/19) a promotional deal with Boxing Training Great Angelo Dundee! Known as the trainer to some of the world’s most well-known boxers including Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, Jose Napoles, George Foreman, and Carmen Basilio, Dundee became famous as a producer of 15 different champions.
With his brother Chris Dundee, Angelo opened the Fifth Street Gym in Miami and became the chief trainer. While the first world champion he worked with was Hall-of-Famer Carmen Basilio, Dundee was shot into national fame when Muhammad Ali won the World Heavyweight title from Sonny Liston. Dundee remained Ali’s trainer until retirement, then once again acted as cornerman for Sugar Ray Leonard in many of his biggest fights. One of Dundee’s great feats was when he was in Foreman’s corner as he knocked out Michael Moorer to win the heavyweight title.
Dundee was enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1994, but has never retired. Dundee has continued to work with new talents, act as a commentator for ESPN, and was most recently hired to train Russell Crowe’s characterization of James J. Braddock in “Cinderella Man”.
Capitalizing on his popularity through sport, Elite Sports Marketing will now work to represent Angelo Dundee with the same level of integrity that his contributions brought to the sport of boxing. Dundee will be available for corporate, charity, and public appearances during the promotion of his new book, My View from the Corner. Elite Sports Marketing will be handling all appearances, book promotions, speaking engagements, product endorsements, memorabilia distribution, and more.
