HBO's Hershman, Showtime's Espinoza on Steward

A statement from SHOWTIME Sports on the passing of Emanuel Steward. Among his vast and remarkable contributions to the sport of boxing, Steward served as an analyst in the early days of SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING series.

"We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of the legendary Emanuel Steward today. Not only was Emanuel one of the most esteemed and accomplished boxing trainers in the history of the sport, he was also an incredibly generous and warm-hearted human being. In addition to his many professional pursuits, Emanuel served as a life coach to countless young men and women, particularly in his beloved adopted hometown of Detroit, and through them his legacy will live on. Those who were fortunate enough to have known Emanuel will remember him for his infectious enthusiasm, ever-present smile and seemingly limitless generosity. We extend our deepest condolences to the Steward family during this difficult time. He will be missed by everyone his spirit touched." - Stephen Espinoza

HBO has issued a statement on the passing of legendary trainer Emanuel Steward.

“There are no adequate words to describe the enormous degree of sadness and loss we feel at HBO Sports with the tragic passing of Manny Steward.  For more than a decade,  Manny was a respected colleague who taught us so much not only about the sweet science but also about friendship and loyalty.  His energy, enthusiasm and bright smile were a constant presence.  Ten bells do not seem enough to mourn his passing.   His contributions to the sport and to HBO will never be forgotten.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

-Ken Hershman, President, HBO Sports.

Note: Emanuel Steward started work as an HBO boxing analyst in 2001.
