In an Extratime interview shown on 13 June 2008, Rob Bonnet spoke to the boxing trainer Angelo Dundee.


Extratime is in Florida to meet one of boxing's most enduring figures.

Angelo Dundee has been training world boxing champions for the past five decades.

He's worked with some of the sport's biggest names, including Willie Pastrano, George Foreman and Sugar Ray Leonard.

But it's his long relationship with Muhammad Ali for which he is most famous.

He was in Ali's corner from 1960 all the way through to the brutal beating he took in 1980 at the hands of Larry Holmes.

Angelo Dundee gives a unique insider's view of Ali's time in and outside of the ring and how at the age of 86 he's still training boxers.

He talks to Rob Bonnet.
