    Wlad by decision most likely, although Spinks is a dangerous puncher against Wlad.

    Neither guy would take many risks. I see lots of clinching from Wlad.

    Wlad should catch him at some point and take him out.

    Spinks too small for Wlad. You can be as crafty as you like, but when the other guy has 5 inches in reach over you and is one of the world's best jabbers, you're going to have a problem. I think Spinks might see the end if that was his goal, but if he tried to press the action Klitschko would batter him to bits.

    So WK goes 23 freaking rounds with Grandpa Mormeck and feather fisted little Byrd but now he is going to blow out the undefeated lineal champ ? LOL......slightly past prime..Larry Holmes brought a lot more to the table than WK ever will while actually having a chin and Spinks defused him.....

    With that being said, WK "should" win by UD, no way is he going to war with Spinks............but also WK "should " have "won" against borderline cans like Purrity/Brewster or a Golfer.

    Tough match for Spinks. I don't think he took a punch overly well at heavyweight and he would have to watch out for Wlad's power all fight because he had the potential to end the fight or set up the end of the fight quick if he landed. His size and jab would also be awkward. Spinks only chance would be too get inside and time him. Spinks didn't have big power at Heavyweight but Wlad didn't have big durability either. Spinks has mad skills and great cunning when need be. You'd have to make Wlad a really big favorite i think. Interested to see what others think

    Spinks was no where near the puncher he was as a lightheavyweight. Even though he stopped a superheavy in Cooney, he did so with beautiful combinations. He wouldn't be able to keep Wlad off him for long and Wlad's right hand was like a howitzer. It would be similar to Wlad vs Byrd but shorter. Wlad ko3.

    Good grief, isn't that the truth!

    I keep saying to mummy "black socks for christmas, mum. Plain. Cotton."

    But no.

    Socks with diamonds, with stripes, with dots, white socks, tartan socks, socks with ****ing polar bears on them ... :mad: Hours of my life are wasted matching socks. :ohno

    I've got Wlad chipping away at Spinks,round by round breaking him down .Spinks showing flashes of his greatness but its just not enough here .A battered ,weary Spinks is eventually stopped in 9 round's .
