Tim Witherspoon

"Terrible" Tim Witherspoon (born December 27, 1957) is a retired American boxer who was twice world heavyweight champion. Tim spends his time betwwen the USA and UK where he is proving to be a very popular figure on the after dinner circuit.

Early in his career, Tim Witherspoon briefly worked as a sparring partner for Gerry Cooney. "I lasted three days," Witherspoon said. "When I bloodied his nose, they told me to take a walk."

In 1983, Witherspoon fought Larry Holmes for the World Heavyweight Championship and lost by a twelve-round split decision. In 1984, he defeated Greg Page by a twelve-round majority decision to win the vacant WBC Heavyweight Title. He lost it in his first defense, dropping a twelve-round majority decision to Pinklon Thomas. In 1986, Witherspoon defeated Tony Tubbs by a fifteen-round majority decision to win the WBA Heavyweight Title. He successfully defended it with an eleventh-round TKO of Frank Bruno, but lost it in his second defense when he was stopped in the first round by James (Bonecrusher) Smith.

Tim is a very charismatic character and a real great choice for Dinner functions and corporate events. Tim is available in The UK for After Dinner speaking, meet and greet TV & Radio.
