No thats not a fair comparison...Holmes still had some left and the 2nd fight was closer but I did not think Holmes won, we been down that road before...Spinks took Holmes title, Holmes did not take his. I think Charles was a far superior fighter than Spinks @ 175 and Heavyweight, Charles brought so much more to the table.
