Maybe it was the wrong reason. However much he bulked up he was never able to hurt Wladamir Klitschko or handel him in the clinches.

If he had worked on his speed more he could have given him some problems.

I don't believe in "Natural weight" - What is natural weight?
The minimum weight that a fighter can make without detriment to their performence. In Spink's case it is under 175 lb's making him naturaly smaller than say Sam McVea who fought at 211 lb's.

Oh, and I wouldn't deny that steroids have played a major role in the "weight regulation" of some boxers.
Me neither.
