One of the true greats of boxing and even more respected than many of the legends who he trained. RIP Manny, I enjoyed watching you lead your fighters to glory and enjoyed your insightful interviews. Most of all, you inspired generations of trainers to educate and inspire youngsters.
Certain Trainers/Fighters are always tied for life... Ali/Dundee, D'Amato/Tyson, Roach/Pacman.. My favourite? Steward/Hearns!
@23: Richard R: I agree, that was a devastating knockout. A big loss to boxing, and it creates a hole in the training fraternity that will probably never be filled. My thoughts are with his family at this time.
How sad. A true giant of the sport and right up there with greats like Angelo Dundee. His record of training champions is amazing and I was always a fan of the Kronk gym and the style and excitement he gave his fighters like Tommy Hearns et al. What a legacy he has left behind. RIP.
As an ex boxer and avid fan it is indeed sad for the sport. But lets remember the glory and excitement he brought, through his fighters, to the world. His humanity and and charitable disposition to the poor hungry guys who came to The Kronk. As a British person there is no greater compliment than this. He was and will remain a Gentleman.
Great person..great reputation. In boxing and detroit a legend. I also applaud him for always having an 'old school' work ethic when it came to boxing. RIP
A Giant in the World of boxing ..... A gentleman outside the ring too..... A very sad day for the boxing fraternity...Condolensces to his family and friends and thanks for all the wonderful memories you gave us Manny...A record second to none as a trainer...R.I.P Emanuel Steward
His best result by far was The Motor City Cobra aka The Hitman From Detroit aka Tommy Hearns. Watch the video on utube of Hearns KOing "hands of steel" Roberto Duran in two rounds.
had never heard of him but just read his "stats" if you like...what a top trainer and I'm sure top bloke too!
Great trainer and a nice guy , rest in peace
