December 29, 2010 - Legendary Hall of Fame trainer Angelo Dundee’s beloved wife Helen died December 28, 2010 near their home in the Tampa area. She was 85 years old. Helen had suffered from various health problems in recent years. Angelo, who is recovering from hip surgery, has often said, “She is my toughest fighter.” Angelo and Helen would have celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary in February. They might have seemed an unlikely pair when they first met. Angelo, an Italian from South Philly, was working the grimy gyms of New York. The former Helen Bolton, a “southern belle” from North Carolina, was a fashion model in New York City. Besides Angelo, Helen is survived by her son Jimmy and her daughter Terri.
