    I'm not aware of that being a rule in boxing. What do you think about this fight from the 90's?

    Big respect to an underrated champ. Please tell me you rate Bruno's power. Also can you share what happened in the Bonecrusher fight?
    Thank you.

    Your question is answered! Will be in the video we made! We actually filmed in the area on the other side of where the Rocky Statue is

    I am going to answer that in the future. That is going to be a video all by itself. Lots to say on that one

    I know you are just starting, and are trying to do honest videos that get to the point, but yeah definitely add this info about the 25$ a month, patreon page as a little blurb in all the videos, and you might want to drop that monthly price if you see people showing interest. Keep in mind, Peacock subscription is 5.99 a month, and I know you are trying to share HBO quality stuff here, but it's all good so far, a boxing fans dream!

    Edit: I reread post, a weekly 1 hour work out is worth more than 25 a month, my bad

    I just watched your answer video. Thank you very much, sir.
    So you were essentially taught your defensive system is what you are saying. This underlines the importance of having brilliant coaches, that teach you something that works for you and just clicks. Then, brilliant athletes build upon that but my takeaway here is that brilliant coaching is essential.

    And again part of it was experimenting with other boxers. Get creative but make sure it is pressure tested before taking into a match

    I'm sure Tim would have loved to train Wilder. I'm sure a lot can be said about Wilder, how Tim would approach training him, what holes he sees in his game, whether he thinks Malik Scotts approach in getting him to bulk up was correct, how he thinks Wilder would have fared in past eras etc

    I stand by my opinion that he KOd Fury and that the first fight could and should have been called off when Fury was unconscious.

    Did you watch the timestamped video I posted for you? Morrison knocked out Ruddock who woke up after hitting the floor and he was allowed to continue. Can you cite that rule anywhere?

    Ruddock did look out for a second when he went down but was up almost immediately. The camera didn't show him though so hard to tell.
    Fury was down looking comatose for a good 7 seconds.

    Maybe it is referee discretion, but it doesn't make sense to say a KO is a win if you can KO someone and they can wake up a few seconds later and continue.

    Technically a KO isn't going unconscious but not getting up before the ref's 10 count. The referee or doctor deciding you've had enough is a TKO. Boxers have also been knocked out cold, saved by the bell, and then allowed to continue into the next round.

    Tim, when I was in fourth grade, our school had a spelling bee. I was knocked out in the first round because I spelled forest "forrest".

    As a child, what word knocked you out of the spelling bee?

    Also, like my snafu with Forrest, you tended to KO a lot of guys in the first round that had double consonants in their name: Tillis, Beilfuss, Wills, Jimmy, Jesse, Billups, Ballard,

    Bonus: you KOed Darroll Wilson in the second round and he had two double consonants in his first name.
