Probably talking about Holmes since most (sadly) don't rate Spinks at HW... nor do they have any idea of how good he was at 175. They just know that he got humiliated by Mike and that his brother is a bit of a punchline nowadays...

Tyson definitely hit harder

Razor Ruddock suffered a broken jaw and a broken rib within two fights he had with Mike, broke Jesse Furggeson's nose, Mitch Green and Michael Johnson lost some teeth, Mike practically knocked Sammy Scaffs nose off and he nearly caused life threatening injuries to Andrew Golota

Marciano's damage came from sustained beatings against geriatric opponents ... Tyson crippled his victims within the first few rounds ... Marciano is an amateur compared to Tyson

Well, not that I think Spinks was a legit HW great, but he did dethrone my number three heavyweight. And it's not like Mongoose had a better HW win than that, and he was counted for Rock, so...you know.

Indeed I was, however you've got me all wrong. I said ATG out of the names listed, and considering Suzie going on about the size difference between Mike and Rocky's opposition, it didn't really seem to be of too much relevance having a blown up light heavyweight into the equation.
