in that first fight with ali he looked sharp his punches were right on his jab was snapping at ali and his one two combinations had ali confused ali had no game plan the rope a dope was ineffective as leon stepped side to side and threw body punches it forced ali to come away from his usually effective rope a dope and fight from the centre of the ring were the younger foe was able to land punches at will against the seemingly tiring older foe which led leon to the much deserving win

I read the other day he went broke but now he has a job as an organiser of the school buses for a high school in the US. He says he still talks to Michael occupationally.

One of Leon Spinks impressive performances was at the 1975 Pan Am Games,
in Mexico City.
Leon won the 178 lb. Silver Medal
He lost to a great Cuban fighter, Rene Pedrosso in the Finals.
