I see Spinks building up an early points lead due to his faster punching but Bonavena would keep steaming in,and knock Leon out around the halfway mark.

Not quite sure when it would happen, but happen i think it would...Leon getting caught with something crude and nasty... chances are he may even run onto/into "īt " he did climb all over Bernardo Mercado..but Bernard was taller and a bit of a slow robort to which Leon could be an annoying Bee ..until the moment came when the multiple of Stings caught up with him, but i dont think that ability exists here, this is more like a Jack Russell acting like a bulldog - finding himself up against a genuine Bull, and sooner or later one of Oscar's retaliatory bullrushes will land with something...Leon's not exactly a matador and gets gored..After Joe Frazier...Maybe even George Chavalo...Oscar should be able to cope with Leons Hyper-buzz..it just might take awhile for the swotter to land right. but land i think it would...

Leon wins a close decision, or more likely, Oscar wins a close one in the fight of his life.IN his brief prime, Leon was a mutha', full of energy, and he would be up on Oscar all Night.But Oscar would just have enough to pull off the victory.

Oscar takes this one, probably by late stoppage.

Spinks has no chance. Oscar was heavy handed and highly durable. Spinks would eventually be hit with a haymaker and soon after the fight would be stopped.
