He understood the finer points of boxing, as far as I can tell, but seemed to leave that part to the more keen, detail oriented trainers in a champions entourage, preferring a larger, more above-the-fray role, sometimes only joining camp in its later stages. A lot like Manny Steward for fighters that weren't house; Manny only trained Andy Lee, Wladimir Klitschko, and K9 Bundrage full time. Other fighters have brought him in, but he only went in the late stages and cornered for the fight.

Both men are missed. RIP.
good point but to be honest
when watching stewart working on hbo, you could clearly see him mentioning
details about distance, inside work etc
and not to mention you could see him he is very good on the pads and MUCH MORE IMPORTANLY HE PRODUCED FIGHTERS FROM HIS GYM,
and didnt just take ready made products who were top of the talent poll
