    I agree, but this guy is a royal pain in the a$$, he's been banned several times. I hope he gets banned permanently.

    If you watch the fight its not a big upset. Ali was old. Spinks was much faster.

    Yeah, but Ali had recently had a close fight with Ernie Shavers, which officially he won although that's been debated ever since. Leon Spinks was nowhere near at that level. Ali was done at that time, I agree. It was obvious at that point that he would soon lose the title. But few (if any) expected that Leon Spinks would be the one to take it from him.

    I think Bonecrusher taking out Witherspoon was pretty bizarre.

    Dancing around the ring, not attempting to even hurt your opponent, getting knocked down twice and then becoming heavyweight champion is a fairy tale for sure

    Fury won that fight you’re blind if you gave Wilder 5 rounds. Maybe it’s a blind fairy tale lol
