The Kronk Gym was a gym located on Junction in SW Detroit and led by the famous boxing trainer Emanuel Steward. The gym was run out of the basement of the oldest recreation center in the city. It opened shortly after World War I and closed in 2006. The Kronk began to earn fame during the late 1970s, when boxers like Hilmer Kenty, Thomas Hearns and Mickey Goodwin trained there. In 1980, Kenty became Kronk's first world champion, and Hearns followed him as world champion months later. Does anyone have any interesting stories about visiting the Kronk during it's glory days!
