Training & Trainers
Lennox stated to James Lawton of the Toronto Star on March 7, 1999:
“Muhammad Ali said it, and I know he is right now. He said the longer you go, the harder it is to go to camp. It is the hardest thing of all – much harder than going into ring. But the more you want something, the more you are ready to sacrifice.”
Arnie Boehm, Lennox’s first boxing coach

In September 1994, Lennox unexpectedly lost his WBC Title against Oliver McCall of the United States at Wembley Stadium in London. Realizing that he had lapsed into complacency, Lennox enlisted the help of World famous American trainer Emmanuel Steward of the Kronk Gym in Detroit. Renowned as the World’s top trainer, Emmanuel’s success stories include Tommy “Hitman” Hearns, Oliver McCall, Julio Caesar Chavez and Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield to name but a few.
