Wladimir Klitschko releases goodbye to Emanuel Steward

The boxing community has suffered a great loss with the passing of Emanuel Steward. Current heavyweight champion and Steward trained fighter Wladimir Klitschko summed it up appropriately with a statement regarding the greatness that was Emanuel Steward, stating,

“Boxing has suffered a tremendous loss with the passing of Emanuel Steward. Vitali and I, along with the entire Team Klitschko, send our deepest and most heartfelt condolences to Emanuel’s family and friends. It is not often that a person in any line of work gets a chance to work with a legend, well I was privileged enough to work with one for almost a decade. I will miss our time together. The long talks about boxing, the world, and life itself. Most of all I will miss our friendship. My team and I will carry on with the goals we had set while Emanuel was with us because that is exactly what Emanuel would have wanted. I know he will be with us in spirit along the way and we will accomplish these goals in his honor.”

8CN joins Team Klitschko and indeed the entire boxing community in sending condolences to the family and friends of Emanuel Steward.
