Emanuel Steward might be the perfect trainer for the Klitschko brothers, Vitali and Wladimir. Steward's the one who worked Lennox Lewis' corner when
Vitali Klitschko battered Lewis for six rounds last June 21 at Staples Center. Lewis, behind on all cards, escaped with a sixth-round TKO when Vitali
could not answer the bell for the seventh round because of severe cuts. But he was pummeling Lewis, much to everyone's surprise.
The Klitschkos have been involved in other astonishing fights.
Vitali, in a defense of his World Boxing Organization heavyweight belt on April Fools Day 2000, quit after the ninth round against Chris Byrd because
of an injured shoulder, losing his title. Vitali was ahead by five, five and seven points at the time.
Wladimir was knocked out by Corrie Sanders in the second round March 8, losing that same WBO championship belt.
Together, Steward and the Klitschko brothers have seen a lot. It will be interesting to see what materializes now that they have pooled their talents,
along with those of Fritz Sdunek.
