Delusional Tom Tsatas sees his gym’s historical links to the likes of Muhammad Ali and Angelo Dundee go up in smoke

Jim Dundee press release —

Former partners in the now closed gym, Tom Tsatas and Dino Spencer are close to opening a separate gym on South Beach under the name ”World Famous 5th Street Gym” which bears no affiliation to the Dundee name or brand.

Jim Dundee stated: “I want to make clear that the “World Famous 5th Street Gym” that is being opened by Tom Tsatas and Dino Spencer on Miami Beach is in no way affiliated with my father Angelo Dundee, the Dundee family, nor with my father’s protégée Matt Baiamonte.”

Dundee continued: “We are exploring opening Angelo Dundee’s 5th Street Gym in the future with a more structured team in place that can carry on my father’s dream. My father’s protégé and head trainer Matt Baiamonte will continue to be involved in all aspects of our decision making process.”

When Ali came to Ireland, a terrific documentary on the circumstances surrounding Ali’s 1972 fight in Dublin (Available for a limited time only on the RTE player)

Amazing to note that the man who promoted the fight, Butty Sugrue, is buried in the graveyard literally next to my house in Churchtown

Remarkable that such a piece of boxing history is so close to home, as Sugrue was from nearby Killorglin
