Teddy grew up in a relatively wealthy family; his father worked as a doctor, and his mother was a model, in her youth having participated in Miss America pageants. He attended private high school, but left the school, and had several problems with the law, which eventually resulted in jail time in Rikers Island for armed robbery.In his teenage days, Teddy was attacked with a knife, which left his face in a bad condition; the wounds required 400 stitches, and left him with scarring.After that he aspired to become a boxer, and thanks to the money his family had, they assigned him to the famous Cus D`Amato. However, Teddy injured his back and was unable to continue with his career, and instead focused on becoming a trainer. He taught the young Mike Tyson, however, the two got into a fight, and Teddy was fired from the D`Amato club.He then continued on his own, and has been quite successful, being head coach to Michael Moorer, and leading him to a heavyweight title in 1994, which also raised Teddy`s net worth to a large degree.Afte r that he worked with Barry McGuigan in the Featherweight division, and soon after became trainer of heavyweight Donny Lalonde, however, the two parted ways due to their frequent disagreements, but Teddy`s net worth certainly increased.Teddy then became coach of Alexander Povetkin, whom he led to the WBA heavyweight championship, beating Ruslan Chagaev, before they ceased their collaboration. His tenure as trainer of the Russian boxer also helped raise his net worth.Most recently, Atlas became the trainer of Timothy Bradley, and worked to prepare him for a title defense against Brandon Rios. Timothy won the fight, which apparently means that the two will continue their collaboration.Teddy`s net worth has also been increased by his work as a commentator; he joined NBC, and amonst other events has been covering the Olympic Games since 2000, in Sydney, Athens, Beijing and London.Furthermore, Teddy has also found engagement on ESPN 2, as a commentator for the shows “Friday Night Fights” and “Wednesday Night Fights”.
