Emanuel Steward's sister confirms passing of Hall of Fame trainer

BoxingScene.com is reporting via their Twitter account that Emanuel Steward's sister is now confirming that the Hall of Fame trainer and HBO boxing analyst has passed away:

Emanuel Steward sister has now confirmed that her brother passed away about half an hour ago. RIP

Mr. Steward was 68 years old, and conflicting reports all day had him having passed away early this morning or perhaps late last night, which the family then denied. There was a later report earlier this afternoon that he'd had a surgery today and come out of that, but now it seems he has, in fact, passed on.

It has been a sad day all around for the boxing world, to say the absolute least. Mr. Steward was respected, loved by many, and his death is a terrible blow for those in the boxing industry, and those who are just fans, of all ages.

Once again, our thoughts and best wishes are with Mr. Steward's family and loved ones at this time. May he rest in peace.
