Default Seriously HBO...

That's it...that's your tribute to Manny Steward? I pray that they intend to do something more during their next WCB broadcast, if not that shit was disgusting. Not even a customary bell ringing salute?

I didn't think they did the count for him either. What the living **** was that? They better have a special somewhere. If not, **** HBO eternally. That's not only a legendary trainer but it's one of their own guys, for ****'s sake. That's part of the HBO family, right there.

Bob Poppa said some kind words, that's it. No video, no bell salute, no reference to it by Max or Roy Jones...very modest tribute. Not to take anything away from the remarks from Bob.

I mean they did more for Tapia (RIP), no disrespect to Tapia. I mean this is Manny ****ing Steward. When is the next WCB card?

The next WCB card isn't for at least 3 weeks, the tribute should have been tonight and if that was it then that is truly disgusting.

They did more for Arthur Curry! Also no disrespect but come on. Maybe we're jumping the gun but, if they were to do more, why not in the same segment as Bob talking about it? I don't get it. And it's not like they didn't have some time to put something together.

Wow...that's some ****ed up shit. Honestly that was one of the main reasons I tuned in, I wanted to enjoy a legitimate tribute, to one of the greatest ambassadors the sport has ever known. Surely they will do more...I mean surely.

The next WCB is Broner on 17th November. So yeah almost a month after his death, it would seem a bit late IMO if it were to be then. But hopefully they do something for it on that card otherwise that's just horrible man.

Absolutely agree...shit remember what they did for Nick Charles, who deserved every single thing they did, but again this Emanuel Steward?

Maybe they might have a independent segment dedicated to him. eg Documentary style?

We don't know why Manny's wishes were. He had been sick for a while Abd hadn't gone public because he did not want the attention. Who knows

They better, because if they don't, it will be a complete disgrace that is worthy of making a few phone calls to HBO about.
