Default Re: Michael Spinks or Billy Conn, who ranks higher pound-for-pound?

What I'm trying to say is that the credit Spinks gets is deserved, but those I listed deserve the same amount of credit for the feat as well.
Well said. Charles and Tunney fit specially well considering they fought older versions of the champs. But as McGrain mentioned, Tunney's task was easier when you consider Dempsey's deterioration and the fact that he was a swarmer.
