Default Re: The Legacy of Lennox Lewis with Emanuel Steward

It doesn't surprise me that Steward speaks highly of Larry Holmes. Steward and Lewis was a great match. However, Steward was not good for De La Hoya and Hamed. De La Hoya's technique was erratic and sluggish under Steward. He totally destroyed Hamed's style as he became flat-footed and hittable. Hamed's hands down style was made for foot and waist movement. He was very "straight up and down" under Steward.
