Vitali and I, alongwith the entire Team Klitschko, send our deepest and most heartfelt condolences to Emanuel'sfamily and friends.It is not often that a person in any line of work gets a chance to work with a legend, well I wasprivileged enough to work with one for almost a decade. I will miss our time together. The longtalks 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 isexactly what Emanuel would have wanted. I know he will be with us in spirit along the way and wewill accomplish these goals in his honor.Rest in peace Emanuel. You will be greatly missed. Until we meet again my friend."-Wladimir Klitschko"It brings me great grief and sadness to hear of the passing of one of the best and most respectedtrainers of this era, Emanuel Steward. I learned a lot from him during our professional relationshipand I will be forever grateful for his help during that time. We were also friends and I know I amgoing to miss him as so many others will too. He was an important part of our boxing community."-Oscar De La Hoya
“I am sadd
ened to learn of the passing of Emanuel Steward. My thoughts and prayers are with the
Steward family, and I’m sure all Detroiters share that sentiment. With the loss of Emanuel Steward,we have lost a true Detroit icon. Emanuel Steward embodied our city’s
toughness, our competitive
spirit, and our determination to always answer the bell. We are grateful for Emanuel Steward’smany contributions to our city and his impact on generations of young people.”
 -David Bing, Mayor of Detroit
 
"I can barely write this, but between my tears I must try to tell the world how much EmanuelSteward meant to me. I know he meant a lot to so many people. I am just one of many. But there
would be no “First Lady of Boxing,” no movie Against the Ropes and no Galaxy Boxing if it weren’t
for him.He always deflected the criticism of having a woman around and was my biggest advocate. Hetaught me to ignore the innuendos and hold my head up high when I was taunted or disrespected.He taught me the right way to wrap hands, stop a cut, and choose an opponent. He told me storiesabout his own amateur days and he told me which trainers were good and which were merely
“cheerleaders.”...
 With the passing of both Angelo Dundee and Emanuel Steward, the boxing world is a differentplace. We also lost Bill Miller and Burt Sugar. The landscape looks different. The old familiar facesare leaving us, to be replaced by younger ones. But will there ever be faces in the corner asrevered and iconic as Emanuel and Angelo?My heart is very heavy. A part of my life and my heart is gone."-Jackie Kallen
"I’m completely devastated by the passing of my long time friend, mentor and trainer Emanuel“Manny” Steward. Manny has helped me get through some of the biggest fights in my career and I
only regret that I
couldn’t return the favor and see him through his biggest fight.
 
We’ve maintained a close relationship and the last time we spoke he seemed his usual upbeat self 
so it was very disturbing to hear about his illness and rapid decline. It is with a heavy heart thatrealization of what I hoped were just rumors are now in fact true. Manny always told me I was the
best, but the truth is, HE was the best and I’m grateful, privileged and honored to be counted
among his many historic successes.This has been a very
tragic year for the boxing world, but today we’ve truly lost one of it’s crown
 jewels. Manny was giving, selfless, compassionate and stern. He always gave back to the
community and never forgot where he came from. He was an institution unto himself and I’m
proudto have had him in my corner for so many years.
I’m extremely grateful for the time that I was given with him and he will be severely missed by allwho knew and loved him. I’ll miss his smile, his frank no holds barred truthfulness and our 
discussions on boxing and life. My prayers and condolences go out to his family at this very difficulttime.-Lennox Lewis
