^I was the one who brought it up. I myself have wondered the same of this fight and the Hagler-Duran fight later that year. When a man suddenly changes his style for one fight, this question will come up and I frankly don't see the harm in bringing up the possibility. As I mentioned before, you could make a case for Dwight except for the lack of intensity in his previous fight where Dwight went flat after the 1st round.

Anyway, I wasn't impressed with Spinks' tactics for Dwight-passive fighters never make for tough fights.

Gerry Cooney fight.. It was a very solid display.

I am sure it made Cayton and Jacobs think a little bit..
