The sport of boxing lost a great man today. Legendary trainer Emanuel Steward passed away at age 68.

I was fortunate to be in camp with Emanuel for a few weeks in 2008. Despite his obvious celebrity status, he was as down to earth as anyone. He would gladly talk boxing with anyone who was interested. He never acted like he was superior to others. Emanuel was knowledgeable of course, yet humble and real.
The interview below showcases not only his passion for boxing, but also his down to earth personality. I could listen to him speak like this all day without losing interest.
RIP to a legend whose memories will never be forgotten…
