My favorite gym and coach.

Most of the original coaches that operated out of the Kronk have passed away . I think James Ali Bashir is the last one from that generation still active.

The batton has been passed on to the next generation .. the retired boxers who trained at the Kronk gym.

Manny Stewards daughter Marie opened the new Kronk Gym in a subarb of Detroit...A few years ago.

Former Welterweight champ Milton Mcrory is the head coach. Javon "Sugar" Hill..Who is Manny Stewards nephew and son of former Kronk assistant Coach Henry Hill. Is a coach there Javon Hill was also the coach of Adonis Stevenson. Former Naz opponent and Feather champ Tom "boom boom" Johnson, is a coach.

Jonathan Banks also helps out there when he can.

Former lightweight Champ and one of the Original Kronk Champs Jimmie Paul has his own gym in Detroit. Called Jimmie Pauls hands on gym.

I am sure quite a few other former Kronk students. Are involved in some capacity in training in various parts of the Country. The Boxing Coach John David Jackson also fought out of the Kronk in the 1980's. As did Mike Mccallum who is an amteur coach. And so did Mark Breland when he was an amateur he is now co-trainer of Deontay Wilder.

I dont think anything is gonna replace the original. NEW KRONK GYM.

The above is a rare video of the great boxing coach Luther Burgess passing on his skills. Who was also one of the Kronk gyms coaches. Certainly worth a watch.
