    There was no way Angelo Dundee was going to miss Muhammad Ali’s 70th birthday party.
    The genial trainer got to see his old friend, and reminisce about good times. It was almost as if they were together in their prime again, and what a time that was.
    Dundee died in his apartment in Tampa, Fla., Wednesday night at the age of 90, and with him a part of boxing died, too.
    He was surrounded by his family, said his son, Jimmy, who said the visit with Ali in Louisville, Ky., meant everything to his Dad.
    “It was the way he wanted to go,” the son said. “He did everything he wanted to do.”
