Re: Michael Spinks or Billy Conn, who ranks higher pound-for-pound?
Yeah, I think so too. I also don't think that his wider resume is to be sniffed at and although I agree Conn beat more great fighters and at more weights, I just think that the achievement or wrestling the HW title of the world as a former LHW champion can't be underestimated. Only a couple of guys have done it and i'd suggest that Spinks's task - to outbox arguably the best boxer the HW division had ever produced - was tougher than Tunney's, to out-box a swarming puncher. I also think Dempsey was further gone.
