    Usyk due to Klitschko connection.


    I think he'd also really really want to work with Hrgovic.

    He would have the most success with the best fighter there, Usyk. Who would he most likely train ? He spoke highly of Fury, I wonder if it might be him !

    Definitely Fury. Steward loved fighters he could tune up and attempt to discipline and Fury is the top dog of them all because his name stay's circulating some sort of controversy.
    In fact today Fury totally dissed the UK in favor of the U.S.. Maybe that WWE check he got in Saudi Arabia went to his head. Well he is half there anyway, he has a drug habit, he balloons up and down in weight, and he talks a lot of smack without really accomplishing much. Thats American as ****.

    He might help Joshua protect his chin better like with Wlad.

    It'd have been great to see Fury under Steward. He'd have done a good job keeping him motivated too I expect

    I just said the same thing! He would have Wilder using his jab like clock work!

    He would be best to improve Wilder or Joshua.

    He would absolutely ruin Tyson Fury like he did Hamed.

    Wilder. Look at a raw, young Lennox Lewis who was right hand crazy and had poor balance and sometimes neglected his jab. Lewis had the amateur pedigree but not quite the consistent fundamentals. Steward spent countless hours with Lewis improving his footwork, balance and defence and got him committed to adding a nasty right uppercut to his arsenal. He improved Lewis by at least 40%. Steward would imprint the Kronk style on Wilder and get him throwing straighter punches on balance and with coordination. Wilder's freakish power would be even more devastating! Mark Breland has done a good job with Wilder but Steward was a real strong personality who would keep harping the fundamentals until Wilder would have no choice but to listen and fall in line. It would have been something to see, but we all saw Steward work him magic on Lewis regardless.

    I could see him work with Joshua just because he could make him fight more offensive and behind the jab.. He would have done well with him and Wilder also.. Develop his jab. Emanuel would have done well with both.

    Wilder or Fury. Manny went on and on about how they would eventually be the best 2 HWs. He was very high on both.
