Default M.Spinks on moving up to Heavyweight...

July 1984, talking about the sparring sessions he had been doing with Heavyweights

"I hit Tex Cobb and he told me, "you had me blinkin' there buddy' " laughs Michael. "He said i put a dip in his knee's." "I worked with Witherspoon in 82 and i did fairly well. I did extremely well, to tell you the truth.He knew i was there and i got respect. I was impressed with my performance.

I'd have to say Page gave me more problems than the other two. He's just too big. He tried to hurt me. I landed some good punches, but Page just had too much body. Between Witherspoon and Page , i don't think Witherspoon hits as hard as Page."

The Mallard doesn't committ himself too much and i'd like to get him to show himself. If you can get him to exchange you can get The Mallard when he's sleeping. But i think my chances are good with almost anyone i face."

It's never been done Bob Foster concludes, and it never will be.

He'd better be happy that Page wasn't in shape and with Butch Lewis anymore.

Indeed,

His greatness was confirmed upon beating Lucien Rodriguez, David Bey, Scott Ledoux, Lorenzo Zanon, M. Frazier, Tex Cobb, Old Ali, ossie ocasio and let's not forget Alfredo " the tomato " Evangelista.

Mallard's best wins make Ali's competition look like crap.

No wonder he was a sitting duck to every would be challenger.

You haven't been hanging out with your old buddy Prime_Frazier lately have you?

I know who you are Bill, and can sense the humor.

I was joking back by asking you about prime_frazier, who by the way is posting here under a new alias, but I can't think of it right now.

Well then you've successfully thrown me for a loop. Given that you've bold faced the word legend, and have no particular liking towards Bill, I'm going to guess that this is " I am Legend ", but as you've aready seen, I'm not much good at these games.

I must confess that it is a bit amusing however
