Famous boxing trainer Angelo Dundee dies

Legendary cornerman Angelo Dundee, the man who helped motivate Muhammed Ali and many other boxing champs, died Wednesday, a source close to Ali said.

He was 90.

Dundee died Wednesday in Florida from natural causes, Dundee's son Jimmy Dundee told CNN affiliate WFTS.

Dundee, known for being a supreme motivator, was inducted in the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1992. His biography on the hall of fame website reads like a who's who list of boxing royalty.

    One of boxing's greatest trainers/ spokesmen during the era of great fighters. Too bad he had to watch the deterioration of his sport over the years
