Default RIP Emanuel Steward

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

World-renowned boxing man Emanuel ‘Manny’ Steward has passed away after suffering from a serious stomach illness for the past few months, according to close friend Jonathan Banks.


The 68 year-old, who trained Wladimir Klitschko to invincibility after a long career coaching some of the biggest names in the sport, was reported by some to be battling cancer, although this was denied by his sister.


Steward’s reported death comes just a day after Klitschko announced that he would replace Steward with fellow fighter Banks for his upcoming bout against Mariusz Wach on November 10 in Hamburg, Germany.


The Ukrainian was transformed under the tutelage of Steward after suffering some devastating knockouts in his early career and was enjoying an eight-year unbeaten run with the exceptional coach.


In his career, Steward guided the likes of Thomas Hearns, Lennox Lewis and at one point, 'Prince' Naseem Hamed to notable success in their careers and will be sorely missed by the boxing community.

some conflicting reports coming out atm, some saying he passed away some saying he is still alive. very sad to see the media playing around like this, if they have published false reports shame on them, for shame.

More info in the general boxing forum

Hopefully the rumors of Manny's death are incorrect.


This story was uploaded less than an hour ago and has him alive >>>

Cheers for the confirmation. There has been a lot of speculation both ways in the media.
