ANGELO DUNDEE BOXING JOURNEY: By Brian Zelley
The following link is one of thousands of stories about the
passing of famous boxing trainer ANGELO DUNDEE.
One of the important stories was the time a young Cassius Clay
came to a hotel to visit Dundee's boxer WILLIE PASTRANO.
The story has been told with several versions, but the important
point it started the team of Angelo Dundee and Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali.
In another story, I tell of meeting Muhammad Ali in 1972, and part of that story
was visiting him at his penthouse suite in the Georgia Hotel in Vancouver
and knocking on his door, and it was after I mentioned the time he
visited Willie Pastrano in a hotel, that he smiled and let us enter his room.
