Does anyone know what ultimately was responsible for his fast decline? Did he have stomach cancer, as some reports mentioned, or was it diverticulosis?

Very sad to hear that he passed. :( Not because he was one of the greatest trainers of all time, but because he was such a nice, genuine and passionate person. Just like his first big fighter Tommy Hearns, I don't think there was anyone that disliked him.

Must be tough when you actually knew the guy personally.

When you see how people on the forum are affected, it shows what a class guy Manny Steward must have been.

Great post. Boxing has suffered a huge loss.

I speculated that his reported diverticulitis led to blood poisoning as conditions involving the intestines can so often lead to septicemia, and septicemia can lead to major organ damage if it isn't stopped quickly enough. However, I've heard that his sister/Wlad verified it was colon cancer, but no credible articles seem to confirm that.

Chicago is where he died, though, and they do have a Cancer Treatment Centers of America campus there. I think colon cancer seems most likely now but I don't really know.

Classy words CHEF.

Steward will be greatly missed.

All the best with Wlad's training and preparation.

You were an amazing friend and I will miss our weekly phone calls. As we would say "just checkin in my friend"

We will continue what you started with Team Klitschko and we will do it all in your honor.

You will always be with us in spirit and always in our hearts. You will be greatly missed

As we always said Manny,...."failure is not an option" & "the show must go on"

With tears in my eyes and a very heavy heart, I say.............I love you & miss you!

See you on the other side my friend!

My condolences for the loss of your friend. Top words for a top man. Never knew him personally but have heard nothing but good said about him. Boxing is poorer today without him.
RIP Manny

Very nice words Chef, and condolences to you, team Klitschko and everyone else in the boxing world that ever met him, or knew him. Manny would have been proud of how well Wlad was prepared and preformed vs. Wach.
