Default Re: Michael Spinks vs. Bob Foster @ 175

I give Spinks the edge because I think he was more talented overall, although Bob had some really nice, crafty boxing skills, nice jab and timing, good snappy punches. But Spinks was special, could fight inside and out, good speed, nice pop at light heavy, good condition, and that intangible ability to win no matter what. Let's also face it, the fact that he beat Holmes (albeit past his prime Holmes) reflects quite favorably upon him, whereas Foster never did well with heavies.
