Default Re: Spinks Vs Norton 1978

Spinks was unfocused for the Ali rematch...why are we assuming he'd be ready for Norton? Ken would have steamrolled him. Leon didn't have the punch to bother Norton and was way too defensively porous to not get caught with a booming overhand right.

I agree that Ken was severely jerked around in those days and it still pisses me off, too.

Leon had a lot of natural ability, but what he lacked was size and discipline. On his best nights he was a force to be reckoned with, but there were very few "best nights" with Leon.
