Tommy hasn't changed, still very passionate about his boxing.
He's training a few young boys, including Rocky's younger brother Ali ,
just outside Brisbane.

Thanks for the feedback mate...good to hear Tommy's still goin' strong...and I also again take my hat off to him for takin' his son's closer to the action down the south/east corner so as to further thier boxing careers..cheers mate.

something you're never gonna know mate unless you ask him personally...all i can say is every appointment rocky and i went to throughout my pregnancies, when the doctors would ask what's our background he would always say his mum is kiwi and his dad is yugoslavian and that was always straight from his mouth..
