Teddy Atlas Biography

Teddy Atlas (born Theodore A. “Teddy” Atlas Jr.) is an American boxing trainer and fight commentator. Atlas grew up in a wealthy area of Staten Island, New York City, New York. Atlas enjoyed his biggest success as head trainer to Michael Moorer, whom he guided to the world heavyweight title in 1994. He drew criticism for what some considered to be overly dramatic speeches in the ring corner, particularly during Moorer’s heavyweight title fight with Evander Holyfield, and some felt he did this to draw attention to himself rather than help his fighter.

Teddy Atlas Family

He was born on July 29, 1956, to Theodore A. Atlas and Mary Riley Atlas. His father is a well-known doctor and his mother participated in Miss America. He belonged to a wealthy family and they lived at a wealthy neighborhood of Staten Island, New York City. He belonged to mixed ethnicity as his father is of Hungarian Jewish ancestry and his mother is of Irish ancestry.

Some kids love to play games, some love to read books but Teddy in his days of a youth loved to fight. He would fight even if he had no weapon and would fight even if the opponent was stronger than him. During such a fight in the street, his opponent slashed his face with a 007 flick knife but he survived that fight. He was taken to a hospital and it took 400 stitches in total to fix the cut on his face.
