When did you spar with Toney? I'm assuming when he was a heavyweight?
Can you ID yourself?
When is GTA 6 getting announced
At what stage of Larry Holmes’ career did you spar him? And what was it like to work with him, particularly regarding that jab.
Thanks for doing this.
He’s MR TUT.
Was Jirov as dirty a fighter sparring as in actual bouts?
Did you spar them in reality or in your imagination?
Sure ya did.
Head butts and elbows are something to expect in the early days leading up to a fight when you are a little rusty/frustrated but apart from that no. I did get a cut on my head from another stable mate from an accidental headbutt however
2001ish he was old very old cranky and ate a lot of Denny's and Wendy's in camp, His jab was not a huge issue at that age if you jabbed with him, he was not fast enough to really control you with it once you realise thats all he really had you just sit back and cruise and exchange I never turned up the heat i did not wanna disrespect Larry (Ima big fan) even though he could be a crab
Yes only on one occasion when I begged for it
I could but I won't for private reasoning
Well either they and boxing gave me minor brain damage or I was born with it and it is all in my head
