Default Re: Spinks and Holmes questions!

My impression at the time was that Holmes got robbed in BOTH fights, and while the first decision was questionable, the second was ludicrous.Seems like the officals were judging a popularity contest instead of a heavyweight title fight.After Spinks-Holmes I, Larry had made some unflattering comments about Rocky Marciano and the ringside judges.It looked as though this influenced the judges to the point that Larry would have had to ktfo Spinks to get a draw in the rematch.Indeed, Mike was wobbly at the end, and it sure looked like Larry won.
