Re: Floyd Patterson vs Michael Spinks @ 175
I like hose fast hands of Floyd in this.
And his busier wokrate and he'll be the guy dictating the pace of the bout. I also like the Patterson defense against the type of punches Spinks throws to be effective at deflecting punches with those hands up that high. And he sure did keep them up nice and high for the whole fight and he'd better against this guy.
I also think Mike Spinks gets countered when going to the body. Floyd leaves that false opening and threw those quick shots of his when opponents tried going to the body on the outside. Fast hand counters and it's really almost a trap.
