Emanuel Steward, one of the most successful boxing trainers of all-time and mainstay behind the legendary Kronk Gym in Detroit, has died at the age of 68.

Lightweight Hilmer Kenty became Steward's first world champion in 1980 and, over the next three decades, Manny would act as trainer, mentor and - in his latter years - a guru to a total of 43 world champions. He was inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame in 1996.

As boxing mourns Steward's passing, we highlight some of the fighters who who flourished under the tutelage of the boxing's 'Trainer of Champions'.

Emanuel Steward was one of the best in the business of training boxers.   There is a endless list of famous boxers to long to mention.  He will be sorely missed.  What a sad lost to the sport of boxing and to world of boxing too.

 

May he RIP.
