Emanuel Steward Staging Card at Pechanga on Jan. 13

Legendary  Boxing Figure Emanuel Steward, and his famed Kronk Boxing, present an evening of world class fights at Pechanga Resort & Casino on January 13th. 

Dominic Salcido of Rialto (18-3 9 KO's) will be in the ten-round main event. The co-feature will have WBO Bantamweight Champion, and one of the top female fighters in the world, Kaliesha West (14-1 4 KO's) of Moreno Valley. The special feature is Kronk Jr Middleweight Tony Harrison, who is one of Emanuel's prized pupils. Harrison is 4-0 with 4 first round knockouts. Steward compares the lanky and powerful Harrison to Tommy Hearns, expecting great things from him. The remainder of the fight card will feature some of the best local talent from the Inland Empire and Southern California.

Emanuel Steward said, "I am Honored to be working with a world class venue Like Pechanga and look forward to bringing to the fans a great night of boxing"

Steward is one of the premier trainer/managers in boxing today, a successful promoter with Kronk and current HBO lead boxing analyst. He has achieved success with his boxers at every level of the game. In 1997, he was inducted to the International Boxing Hall of Fame. After managing and training over 40 world champions (with 35 coming out of his famous Kronk Gym in Detroit), Steward now trains current heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. 

Steward has trained dozens of world champions, including Former Heavyweight Champion Lennox Lewis and flamboyant featherweight star Prince Naseem Hamed, Tommy "Hit Man" Hearns, Sugar Ray Leonard, Julio Cesar Chavez, Oscar De La Hoya, Evander Holyfield, Leon Spinks, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad, Aaron Pryor, and Miguel Cotto. Middleweight Andy Lee and Jr Middleweight Tony Harrison are among his current crop of pupils. For over three decades, his world famous Kronk Boxing Gym has been a cultivating ground for boxers of every age and size, from legendary world champions to pre-teen Golden Gloves hopefuls.
