"Kronk Gym has existed for a long time and it will continue to exist. I will do my dedication to that. Fortunately there are a lot of people in Detroit a lot of boxers as well who have worked under Emanuel Steward. Im taking responsibility, but I am more than sure that all of us are united in our strategy of preserving the spirit of Emanuel Steward in Kronk Gym." - Wlad

Looks like it's not closing down, which is great news, but also sounds like it's in bad condition atm.
I'm pretty sure they will be meaning that it has maybe lost a bit of the magic rather than the actual condition of the club. It will be a strange place to be at the minute so soon after the passing of Emanual.
