“D’amato, Futch, Dundee and finally Steward the last of the true great boxing coaches the like of which we may never see again.” Others are on the rise as you speak.

All ESB has to do is post a disclaimer at the top of each thread.

What you say is true; but at the same time you have to give this man his respect. He gave so much to the sport; and yes he did teach men to punch; but BOXING IS LEGAL. These men could have turned out to be robbers; theives; druglords or whatever; but he took some of these young men into his home like Michael Moorer and Tommy Hearns and got them out of the ghetto and turned them into CHAMPIONS so that they could earn an HONEST AND DESCENT LIVING. What’s not to respect about that??????

Manny was a man in a position of power who did ghood in that position. That’s very rare these days.

I hate all this emotional crap. Steward was a man who taught guys to punch other guys in the face and render them unconscious. I like boxing but its a guilty pleasure. He wasn’t mother theresa u know.. Jeez

Emanuel is like a dad I never had. I love him and will always miss him RIP friend

Do it for Manny

And yet Kellerman roams….

The Prince

He was easiest one of the greatest boxing trainers of all time. Even though I didn’t always agree with his boxing commentary regarding certain fighters, I still respected him. R.I.P

Although there were reports that Manny had cancer, his family said he was suffering from diverticulitis. I can’t remember which fight it was but I remember Jim Lampley just saying something to the extent that Roy Jones was filling in for Emanuel Steward who is a bit under the weather. And just a few months later he is gone. I wonder if he brushed off the symptoms at first as just a regular virus and continued on with his boxing related activities and then when he got medical attention it was too late. But regardless of what took place one of boxing’s greatest trainers and an all around legend is gone. It’s going to take some time to get used to having no Emanuel Steward around in the boxing world. I think if Emanuel had a departing wish for his fans, it would be to keep supporting boxing which he devoted his life to. I even made a small donation to his Kronk Foundation since that’s the place where it all started for him as a trainer.

According to Slater Steward said.., “Wladimir Klitschko was the best all-round fighter I’ve ever worked with.” … That’s a high tribute considering Wladimir doesn’t have a versatile body attack and doesn’t have much of an inside game—and Steward worked with 41 world champions.. Vlad is a great boxer and great puncher, so if Manny said WK is the best boxer or best puncher he ever worked with that would ring truer.

He was always respectful, extremely knowledgable and a class act at all times. A person I really admired. RIP Emanuel.

I already posted earlier and am still devastated and shocked. But I love all the great comments people leave for him! This is the true indication of a persons worth. He affected all of us and 99% of us never even met him. Great trainer, Great man, and Boxing will never forget him. RIP Manny

Boxing wont be the same, simple as that R .I.P Thanks for your greatness .

“we need to get back to the best fighting the best” – Emanuel Steward on HW Boxing May 2012. This guy was a gem and is sorely missed already.

Posted October 28, 2012 6:08 pm 


What a great read ,Thank you Manny as a boxing fans fans we will keep your legacy alive !

Posted October 28, 2012 5:23 pm 


I cant believe hes gone he always seemed to have such spirit and good health. Im going to miss his comentary for HBO he was the only one who knew his stuff. Such a shocker! If there truly is a heaven ill hopefully meet you one day.. You lived your life well sir you can rest in peace..

Posted October 28, 2012 5:05 pm 


Steward was a fight fans training, constantly exhorting his fighters to get rid of guys he deemed as hurt or not in their class… The man understood the entertainment aspect of boxing and the importance of “how you win”…..Enough cannot be said about Manny as it pertains to his contributions to the sport, the only solace is that he is truly immortalized..

Posted October 28, 2012 4:45 pm 


D’amato, Futch, Dundee and finally Steward the last of the true great boxing coaches the like of which we may never see again.

old guy

Two things impressed me most: First, CLASS. Wherever he was, the class level seemed to go up. He was always gracious on HBO and didn’t seem to take any opportunity to badmouth anyone, just kept smiling. Second, the guy seemed to be truly color blind in the fighters he worked with, appraised, observed, commented on, etc. You never had any sense that race was a major part of his mental process. Refreshing. I’ll miss Mr. Steward.

Posted October 28, 2012 3:02 pm 


So sad. Stewart actually used to read our comments on this site.

He will be missed forever, boxing will be no more the same for me.
R.I.P. Manny.
