The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] of legendary trainer Emanuel Steward will be felt throughout boxing.
Steward played a part in the guidance and training of many boxers, and a large number
of former champions including retired heavyweight boxer Lennox Lewis, and more recently,
current title chaser Miguel Cotto.

One of Steward's notable students of late is reigning WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO and The
Ring heavyweight champion, Wladimir Klitschko, which got me thinking. Will Manny's passing
expose some of the old cracks that he spent the last eight years filling in?

Klitschko enlisted [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] as he looked to rebuild his
career after losing his WBO heavyweight title when the late Corrie Sanders stopped him out
in the second round of their 2003 fight, dropping him four times in the process.

As can be the case with fighter and trainer, success didn't come immediately. Klitschko was
stopped by Lamon Brewster in a 2004 world title challenge. That loss, though, was the last
time Klitschko was defeated in the boxing ring. His decision to stick with Steward seemed to
have paid off.

With three stoppages in his career, Klitschko has had his chin [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] ever since.
In fact, his chin has also been labelled weak by former opponents including [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and
Jean-Marc Mormeck in the build up to their 2011 and 2012 bouts with the champion.

In the end, Klitschko was standing tall and victorious over both opponents, and over everybody
he has faced since the loss the
Brewster.

Undoubtedly a talented boxer, is it talent alone or is it the guidance of the man who was able
to teach Klitschko to utilize his strengths while masking his weaknesses that has allowed a man
labelled as "chinny" to be so dominant?

Under Steward's tutelage, Klitschko has boxed masterfully behind his jab. He has learned to
patiently break down his opponent while keeping himself out of trouble by making the most of the
reach advantage he's had over so many.

Throughout Klitschko's partnership with Steward, he never once appeared unprepared coming into
a fight, as he did when he lost his first fight to Ross Puritty back in 1998. The pair seemed to
always have the perfect game plan in place for their opponent, and Klitschko appeared to have
complete trust in how Steward has tutored him for the man staring him down across the ring.

Klitschko is scheduled to face the unheralded, but also undefeated, Mariusz Wach in a few weeks
time on Nov. 10. The fight will pit Klitschko against a taller opponent and will give us a glimpse into
how Klitschko will box without Steward in his corner.

Will Klitschko stick to the methods for both training and boxing that Steward spent years instilling
in him, or will he decide his talent alone allowed him such domination? Will the past taunts of the
weak chin on Klitschko's face ring true without the man who has taught him to protect it all these
years with in and out movement, a stiff jab and high hands?

Steward's loss will leave a hole in boxing, but could the biggest hole of all be showing on his biggest
client?



Seen this on the net. What do you think? I think this fight does not go past 6 and I think Wlad will
try for the early KO for manny. Thoughts?
My thoughts? Ripping off whole articles and reposting them without credit is sleazy.
