So while I think Michael could do it and Leon could not I would not bet on Michael Spinks either but his angles and sporadic flurries would deter Norton's momentum IMO but not so sure who would win this.
Michael's awkward flurries would indeed give Ken some things to think about. Norton is just all wrong for Leon, it'd be a beating.

Which is doubtful. Spinks did n't possess the punch needed to kayo Norton, nor the skills to outbox him.
