I like Spinks.. Only a single loss in career consisting of a very dominant lightheavyweight reign in a splendid era, followed by winning the heayweight crown from an ATG.. And while amateur careers don't usually factor into professional acheivments, having an olympic gold medal doesn't hurt him either.

Conn would have reamed that old overconfident fossil that turned up against Spinks first time out.

Why don't we just cut to the chase and say that Tarver would have beaten a 1985 Holmes while we're at it?

The Hopkisn who beat Tarver would probably have won every round against that Holmes.

For me it's Spinks. His heavyweight stint is what gives him the edge, in my opinion. Knocked out ****ey and decisioned Holmes. That's awesome.
I agree, and Spinks gave up 30 lbs to Holmes..Incredible
