The boxing world is still shocked over the passing of Emanuel Steward, who trained legendary fighters Thomas Hearns, Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko among others. The trainer died at the age of 68 on Thursday. He made his name as a trainer at the Kronk gym in Detroit, where Hearns first became world champion in 1980. Steward handled more world champions than any other trainer, 43 in all, and was working with current heavyweight champion Klitschko in July.

Promoter Frank Maloney, who managed former world heavyweight champion Lewis, praised Steward for taking Lennox to the next level.

"He was quite a character," he told BBC Radio 5 live. "He had a very strange method of doing his training programme, but got the best out of Lennox Lewis and took him to a new level.

"I also saw him work with Naseem Hamed and he was a great believer in the fighter having to be excited, and having to knock people out. He wasn't really into the science of boxing, more the excitement, and giving the crowd what they wanted."
