    Hello, did you come up with your defensive system, or was it designed by a trainer / taught to you? Likely a mix.

    What do you think of Kubrat Pulev?

    And asking for a sherdog legend (not tagging him): What was your scorecard for Joshua vs. Usyk?

    Do you think you should’ve gotten the decision in the Larry Holmes fight? How would YOU score your fight with Larry Holmes?

    Came to ask this.

    Also if possible:
    Which fighters inspired you?
    who did you take ideas or techniques from?

    and lastly

    I see a mix of defensive styles, including Philly shell, cross guard and traditional high guard, could you discuss how you combined them and used switching between these tactics to confuse your opponents?

    Also I know we gotta help get Tim monetized on youtube so go over and sub to his channel, like his vids, comment, all that good shit. I'm assuming that'll help him a lot.

    Hello Tim, do you think that boxing as a whole has deteriorated since the older days, or just the heavyweights? Who was the last great heavyweight you viewed as being truly skilled on par with the older legends?

    Hello, Mr Witherspoon.

    Who hit you the hardest ?

    How do you think Tyson Fury would do in the 80s and 90s?

    Tim, you seem to place a large emphasis on ''the art'' of boxing. What boxers, from any era, do you think embodied the art of boxing the most?

    And also, have you considered coming back to boxing for one of these celebrity or legend fights like Tyson, Bowe and Holyfield are doing? You seem to be in better shape, mentally and physically, than all of them.

    You fought a lot of good heavyweights in the 80's yet missed the big fight against Tyson, how do you think you would have fared against him back then if you were properly focused?

    Could you beat a true Sherdogger ?

    Jokes aside, tell us some Ali tales.

    Hey Tim,

    When do you think you were at your best?

    As you get older, has something taken the place of boxing as one of your passions (reading, writing, etc.)?
