That's not good enough for all of the boxers and kids that have just had the gym they trained at taken away imo.

More recent apparently. There was a post on here about Steward's sister apparently wanting to take everything out of the gym to protect it from thieves.

I can't see the logic in completely shutting the gym down though. I can understand taking out all of the memorabilia from the walls etc but it's going to leave a lot of fighters with nowhere to train.

With no one to train 'em it's up to someone else to buy it.

True. Who was in charge when Steward was away working with fighters? Was it Chamber's trainer?

I'm not sure that is the new building it looks like it has been left in that state for a while not the matter of a couple of weeks??

The times I've seen Wladimir training with Emmanual Steward the gym looked very clean and bigger than the one in that picture.

I saw Chambers say he had his last training camp in the pictured gym

Just looked up the gym and watched Emanual doing pads with someone recently and the gym looked smaller with white walls and a yellow stripe at the top, it still had the same motto's on the walls but they were smaller. Maybe not but I'm sure that that picture must be from the old gym. Have a look maybe I'm wrong??
Says it for an upcoming fight in 2011

Hmmm. I could just remember somebody on here saying that his sister was stripping the place down and I saw Chambers say he had his last training camp in there so just guessed it wasn't the old gym

quite clearly this has been in this state for a while, so it must be the old gym.

I'm pretty sure the K-Bros and most of the American boxing world would never let that happen. So recent after his death, surely they'd step in if that were the case out of respect for Steward.
