Why do hate Spinks

At least I am humble enough to back up my arguments
Marciano was hard to hit? That's why there's so many pictures of him with his face half torn off.

Spinks? Steffen Tengstadd, Anders Ecklund, 91 second blow-out, aged Larry Holmes---and today's heavyweights are supposed to be the worst ever?

Holmes fighting at a snails pace--I actually saw Holmes fight a few times and most of those fights lacked bad intentions until the last round.

Appreciate what you have now.
