Muhammad Ali's manager writes a letter responding to a request for a photograph saying "who the heck would want one of me"
Typed Letter signed: "Angelo Dundee", 1 page, 8½x11. Miami Beach, California, 1976 March 1976. On personal letterhead to Dear Jim. In full: "Very nice of your to ask me for a photo of myself-would you believe that I have never had any made -always have them of my fighters, my family, etc but no of myself- I figured who the heck would want one of me-you will note that a friend of mine sent me the picture he took of me in front of the gym--??? Stay well and I hope we meet in person one day- Sincerely". Dundee managed and trained many of the greatest boxing champions of modern times, including Carmen Basilio, Jimmy Ellis, Sugar Ray Leonard, George Foreman and, most prominently, Muhammad Ali, joining the latter in 1960 when he was still called Cassius Clay. The late Howard Cosell said of Dundee, "He is the only man in boxing to whom I would entrust my own son." Twice voted Manager of the Year (1968, 1979), Dundee was enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1993. Normal mailing folds. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
