There are contradicting reports on Stewards death.

Unfortunately, I think its true. A lot of fighters connected to him are confirming the news.

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Legendary boxing trainer Emanuel Steward has passed away at age 68 and the family has confirmed his death.

Steward's sister, Diane called me at 3:29 and said, "He went home about half an hour ago. He fought harder than Hagler and Hearns. I'll tell you more later. It's too tough right now."

Unfortunately, you guys are correct. As I've searched I've seen a few main stream media outlets pick up the story.

Broner is clown, but his skill set is legit. His hooks are lightning fast. First fight at 135 and he's having early success against DeMarco, who is a very good fighter in his own right.

On the undercard, Seth Mitchell got schooled and dropped by a pro.

Broner is working DeMarco on the inside, handspeed is way too fast for DeMarco to live there.

DeMarco is a legit champ at 135 and Broner is dominating him in every fashion in his first fight at 135

that last round should be 10-8 even without a knockdown

---------- Post added November-17th-2012 at 11:15 PM ----------

DeMarco's corner might have to save him from himself.

---------- Post added November-17th-2012 at 11:20 PM ----------

Broner finishes him in the 8th.

Absolutely masterclass performance from Broner.

Broner is a beast! Demarco got destroyed

Everybody at 135 has got a real problem on there hands, the only guy I see that can give him real challenge is Rios with his relentless style.

Broner got the Mayweathers defensive stand down too a T and hes only gonig too get better. Like Mayweather his long freakesh arms cover his whole body only leaving the kidneys exposed. The guy is so fast that if you keep trying too go too the body hes going too counter you and put you down. Also his chin is tucked perfectly and the shoulder pretty much blocks his whole face.

He has too stay hungry he has potientail too be great if he adopts Mayweathers worth ethic

I forgot Rios moved up too Junior Welterweight so its really no challenge for Broner at 135. He should fight one more time at the weight and then look too move up again too 140 the toughest divison in boxing.

Seriously, I don't ever really recalling him appearing to be a "good guy." He was who he was. Personally flawed, but a great fighter.

For anyone who missed Guerrero vs Berto last night, you missed a very hard inside fight for 12 rounds. Guerrero fought a bit dirty but overall very good entertaining fight and I'd love to see a rematch.

Great fight!

was the most brutal fight ive seen in a while.

Berto's eyes were both closed.

Guerrero was fighting dirty as hell and the ref allowed it yet penalized Berto when he tried to retaliate. Guerrero deserved to win that fight, but that was unfair.
