Huge loss to the boxing community. Steward was pretty much universally respected, as not only a trainer, but a great human being. I had heard he was sick but didn't realize it was so serious. Thoughts and condolences to his family.
I know he's not overly popular in the states but Wlad is far and away my favorite boxer. He's facing an opponent he should run through...with this happening so close to the fight, I hope his mind is in the right place
"To be truly walking on the warrior's path, we have to bring our minds back to the time when we were not ashamed of our dreams; when reality had not yet frustrated our ambitions; when our desire was still too strong to be repressed, and our spirit refused to surrender in resignation; when we were not yet doctors, businessmen, or lawyers, but still wanted to be heroes, leaders, bodhisattvas. The first step on the way to being warriors is to get back in touch with our dreams."
