    Yep! So here's the deal:

    I got in on the ground floor with first dibs on spamming the champ with q's. I gave him an initial list of ten, half of which he answered in that first video in this very thread's OP. I also have a follow-up list of ten which I've reserved for "Round Two"...although I may pare that one down to five so as to not be greedy and delay other people's stuff getting answered too much. If this is going to be Tim's preferred format going forward, doing videos roughly ten minutes in length, five questions apiece with him spending a couple of minutes on each and giving thoughtful replies with the occasional bonus aside...then we have another 2-3 videos left of me interviewing Tim before opening the floor to everybody. Let's say 2 more, one probably in the works already to answer the second half of my first list.

    Then from that point, once mine are done, I'll step back and take on more of an editorial role. People can submit questions here, or in
    This content is protected
    , and on a timeline of Tim's choosing I will curate the best/most interesting/least redundant ones into groupings of 5 at once, however frequently he feels like doing these for us.

    So to recap - please, don't everybody jump into the man's private messages and overwhelm him, nor make a hundred threads. :sisi1 Put the questions here, or in the other thread, and I'll do my best to consolidate them (weeding out the inevitable repeats or "near enough" to repeats) and make sure those of value do get asked in due time. :thumbsup:

    Who knows... he may in the future be open to replying to individual posts directly, if he's going to be a regular on here - but at least for now his preferred avenue is uploading videos to his YT channel, with the queries going through me as conduit.

    (just to set expectations so nobody feels like their posts tagging him are being ignored)

    Do you feel that you beat Larry Holmes. Did you try to get a rematch?

    I'll be rewatching Tim's fight with Larry Holmes and paying particular attention to the rubbernecking. Last time I scored it 114-114.

    I've been practicing it while on a bag with a partner. They have a foam tube and try to hit me with after I hit the bag. It's my job to get the timing down and slip the punch after throwing. Especially as a southpaw, when I have a good idea of which punch is coming back when I throw. The next progression is to do this while touch sparring.

    Hello Tim, I’m a big fan. In the Holmes fight you were so slick. Slipping, countering, and great job neutralizing Larry’s jab! I was wondering since you’re from Philly if you might have trained withJimmy Young for that fight. I’m a huge Young fan also. Do you have anything you could share about Jimmy? You’re one of the true gentleman of you’re sport. Cool for you to be on here, thank you

    Tim at one time you were managed by Dennis Rappaport, what could you tell us about him?

    Hey champ. My question for you is, what would you have done differently in a rematch with Holmes? I thought you should have gotten a draw at the least if not an outright victory with the Holmes fight.

    A lot of people agree with you there, I should imagine.
    It was a decision for Tim, imo.

    Actually think most questions about Larry Holmes have already been answered in his 2nd answer in the video, he really goes into some detail there about how he prepped to block the jab, his work on countering the jab, why he felt the judges went against him.

    It's amazing he's taken this time to engage with fans.

    I really think everyone should be liking and subscribing to his YouTube channel because it demonstrates a level of appreciation for the effort he's going to here.

    We are talking technique today, as I show the old school skill of rubber necking.

    Like and subscribe for more classic stories and old school technique. @cross_trainer
