Emanuel 'Manny' Steward. Recognised as one of the greatest boxing coaches ever.
Raised in Detroit, Michigan, Steward began training amateur fighters as a part-time coach in 1971 at the now worldwide famous Knonk gym. Steward had helped transform the community centre basement into a conveyor belt of professional champions.
In his coaching career Steward would go on to train 41 World Champion fighters. The three most memorable of them all were Thomas Hearns, Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko. He would train Hearns to do the unthinkable - knockout the legendary Roberto Duràn, Oliver McCall had Manny in his corner when he knocked out Lennox Lewis to win the Heavyweight title. Steward would then jump ship to train Lewis in their rematch in 1997 where the Brit would regain his title. Together the pair had a 16-1-1 record before Lewis eventually retired in 2004. Steward would then go and represent the younger Klitschko. The first fight ended in a knockout loss, then second successive loss. Manny knew the issues were more mental then ability. In time Wlad would rebuild himself as a heavyweight force and one of the most dominant heavyweight champions in history. All under Stewards steady hands. He took a lot of credit for helping Klitschko's mentality, and the way he boxed. Becoming less aggressive, and let his great jab dictate the fight.
Other greats who at some point in their career were trained by Manny include, Oscar De La Hoya, Julio Cesar Chavez, Naseem Hamed, and Evander Holyfield.
Unfortunately, on 25th October, 2012, Manny Steward passed away fighting an illness. He was 68 years old.
Steward left behind a legacy, he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, and boasted a heavyweight titles fight record of 31-2-1. #Boxing #BoxingTales #TaleOfTheTapes #Coach #Trainer #BoxingLegend #BoxingIcon #BoxingGold #EmanuelSteward #KronkGym #Manny #Champion #Legend #Mentor #BoxingHistory #RIP
