Las Vegas (Aug. 4, 2015) – Kronk Boxing & Sylvia Steward-Williams (Emanuel Steward’s daughter) has confirmed that they will appear and have a booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the second annual Box Fan Expo that will take place Saturday Sept. 12, 2015. The Boxing Expo will coincide with Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s last fight and Mexican Independence weekend.
Kronk Boxing will have merchandise and apparel to sell to the boxing fans and Kronk followers. The late Emanuel Steward would have been proud to participate at the second annual Box Fan Expo.
When Steward first heard about the Box Fan Expo, he said, “If you want to have a Boxing Expo, you got to do it big; and to do it big you need to go to Vegas. This is a boxing fan’s dream.”
The legendary Kronk Gym made famous around the world by Steward, who produced a string of world champions, including Lennox Lewis, Wladimir Klitschko and Hall of Famer Thomas Hearns. Kronk closed its doors after Steward’s death on Oct. 25, 2012. After three years of hard work and dedication, the famous gym reopened this past Memorial Day weekend.
“It took a lot of work,” said Steward-Williams, owner of Kronk Boxing/Sportswear. “It’s a labor of love, and it was my father’s legacy.”
Kronk Boxing joins Zab Judah, James Toney, Sergio Martinez, Shawn Porter, Mia St. John, Terry Norris, Joel Casamayor, Fernando Vargas, Ruslan Provodnikov, Peter Quillin and the World Boxing Council (WBC) among early commitments to this year’s Box Fan Expo.

This year the Expo will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and once again, allow fans a chance to collect autographs, take photos and purchase merchandise and memorabilia.
