   schema:description ""Angelo Dundee has lived half-a-century of boxing history. During that period he trained, mentored, and worked the corner of 15 world champions—including Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, and George Foreman. In My View from the Corner, Dundee delivers a candid, behind-the-scenes look at his involvement in some of boxing's most controversial and historic moments. Pulling no punches and telling it like it really was, Dundee breaks decades of silence to reveal how he had to talk Ali into not quitting during his first fight with champion Sonny Liston; the truth about the "phantom punch" that KO'd Liston in their rematch; what he did and did not do to assure an Ali victory against George Foreman during their "Rumble in the Jungle" in Zaire; how Howard Cosell filed a false report about the Ray Leonard-Roberto Duran fight that will not die to this day; the mob' influence on boxing; his true feelings on Ali's conversion to Islam; and what it was like to train Russell Crowe for his role in Cinderella Man"--Publisher's description."@en ;
