Default Re: The all things technical thread.

I love Michael Spinks. The leverage he got on his shots, from the positions he threw them was just amazing. His short shots, thrown on the inside were so perfectly executed. I mean, if most other fighters threw punches from those positions, they would have no where near the velocity, technique or impact of a Michael Spinks shot from the same position. Technically amazing, whilst also so unorthodox and tricky, it's a blend that is almost completely unique to Spinks IMO. Very, very hard fighter to outfight, it's not ridiculous to think you'd either have to be a sublimely skilled fighter to beat him (Maybe Jones Jr, or Moore?). Or someone who could take heads off with his punches, like Iron Mike did
