    You're one of the classic's most entertaining members Goose. :good

    No idea really, but it's not about Holmes or Tucker.

    Maybe Mike was talking about Sir Bert Cooper in the second part? :rofl

    He had a fairly sharp jab but with no chin & no heart you may as well ice skate across a desert.....

    Seldon did have a great snappy jab with some flashy movement but it was widely known that he basically would look to quit at the first sign of trouble.
    I think he trained in and around Atlantic City and I remember a friend of mine trained in or was around the gym when Seldon was coming up and said Seldon would look like Ali one minute snapping that jab and moving in sparring against limited sparring partners but the minute it got hard or someone tested him he would look for an excuse to stop sparring.
    Also if my memory is correct Seldon was a bit of a bully or would try to intimidate people-pretty sure he had a lengthy criminal past if i remember the story correct.
