- From the section Boxing
Legendary boxing trainer Emanuel Steward has died at the age of 68 after suffering from colon cancer.
Steward worked with many world champions including Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko and was in the corner of Tommy "the Hitman" Hearns when he fought "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, in 1985.
The fight was known as "The War" and is considered one of the greatest of all time, despite lasting only three rounds.
