I really don't think Wall was really talking negative about Bruce. I don't know when Wall said this to Wallace. In terms of that era, Bruce didn't really know how to fight due to Wall's, Wallace's, Lewis's definition of fighting--professionally meaning scoring, hence the saying of timing and distance of it. Bruce had a lot of respect for Wall. Bruce introduce them to martial art, all out fight. what's the point of fighting if it's not all out whatever goes. etc. just my opinion.
