Legendary trainer D'Amato is credited with inventing the peek-a-boo style of boxing. He also trained world champions like Mike Tyson and Floyd Patterson, while also helping out in philanthropic activities.
Futch trained not one but 21 world champions including Ken Norton, Joe Frazier, Virgil Hill among others. He also trained Freddie Roach who himself went onto become a great trainer.
