Angelo Dundee, the trainer who worked with Muhammad Ali in some of his greatest fights and assisted Sugar Ray Leonard to victory in his biggest bout, died Wednesday in Tampa, Fla. He was 90.
 The Dundee was best known for being in Ali's corner for almost his entire career, but those in boxing also knew him as an ambassador for boxing and a figure of integrity in a sport that often lacked it.
 He died with his family surrounding him, said son, Jimmy Dundee, but not before being able to attend Ali's 70th birthday bash in Louisville, Ky., last month.
 WHAS11's Mike Colombo spoke to Dundee on that same day.  Stay with WHAS11 News for the exclusive interview.
