"Hitman" Reflects on "Second Father"

October 26, 2012

DETROIT, MI (My TV20 News at 10) --- Tommy Hearns always had a close relationship with Emanuel Steward.

The boxing hall of famer reflected on the loss of the man he considers a second father.

Steward died Thursday in Chicago, a month after he had surgery.

The cause of death has not been released.

Our talk with Hearns came moments before employees cleared out the gym, and closed its doors.

The future of the Kron Gym is unknown, as Steward planned to move it to Southfield before his death.
