    The son of a doc­tor, Atlas grew up in a wealthy area of Staten Is­land, New York City, New York. His mother, Mary Riley Atlas, was a for­mer con­tes­tant in the Miss Amer­ica pageant sys­tem, as well as a model. His fa­ther was of Hun­gar­ian Jew­ish an­ces­try and his mother of Irish de­scent. Atlas was raised in his mother's Catholic faith and spent sum­mers in Spring Lake, New Jer­sey, with his fam­ily's friends. By his own ad­mis­sion, Atlas had a some­what trou­bled, re­bel­lious youth. He dropped out of school and was ar­rested sev­eral times. He par­tic­i­pated in an armed rob­bery and served time on Rik­ers Is­land. Atlas was in­volved in a street fight in Sta­ple­ton, Staten Is­land, in which his face was se­verely slashed with a "007" flick knife. The wound took 400 stitches in total to close, with 200 on the out­side of his face and 200 on the in­side. The at­tack left him with a dis­tinc­tive scar.

    Boxing trainer

    Atlas trained as an am­a­teur boxer with Hall of Fame trainer Cus D'Amato. He had some am­a­teur fights and won a 135-pound Golden Gloves title but had to turn to work as a trainer due to a back injury. Atlas was an as­sis­tant to D'Amato, al­though his role in the Catskill Box­ing Club was short-lived. In 1980 he trained Swe­den Olympic Box­ing Team for 1980 Sum­mer Olympics. His du­ties in­cluded as­sist­ing in the train­ing of D'Amato's teenage protégé Mike Tyson. How­ever, Atlas left the...


    Atlas served as a com­men­ta­tor for ESPN, for­merly for ESPN2's Fri­day Night Fights and Wednes­day Night Fights and later for ESPN's Pre­mier Box­ing Cham­pi­ons fights. On Jan­u­ary 25, 2008, Atlas was sus­pended by ESPN twice, once for threat­en­ing a crew mem­ber and once (for one week) after con­fronting the net­work's box­ing pro­gram di­rec­tor, Doug Loughrey. Atlas ac­cused Loughrey of show­ing fa­voritism to cer­tain pro­mot­ers and match­mak­ers, who were abus­ing their ESPN con­ne...


    In 1989 he was part of the cast and the crew in movie Tri­umph of the Spirit which por­trayed the story of Salamo Arouch Jew­ish Greek boxer who sur­vived the Holo­caust by box­ing (over 200 bouts) for the en­ter­tain­ment of Ger­man Nazi of­fi­cers in Auschwitz Con­cen­tra­tion Camp. Atlas played the role of Klaus Sil­ber, main an­tag­o­nist in the movie. He was also a box­ing con­sul­tant for William Dafoe.

    Atlas is cur­rently mar­ried to Elaine, with whom he has two chil­dren: Teddy III and Nicole. In 1997, he founded the Dr. Theodore Atlas Foun­da­tion to honor the mem­ory of his fa­ther. The foun­da­tion awards schol­ar­ships and grants to in­di­vid­u­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions. Atlas pub­lished his au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, Atlas: From the Streets to the Ring: A Son's Strug­gle to Be­come a Man, in 2006. The book cov­ers many dif­fer­ent pe­ri­ods of Atlas's life and com­pares his po­si­tion as trainer to a role as a fa­ther.

    Atlas has been in­ducted into the New Jer­sey Box­ing Hall of Fame and was in­ducted into the Staten Is­land Sports Hall of Famein 2005.
