    Michael Spinks was a great light heavyweight and cruiser but not a heavyweight. He was scared shitless in the Tyson fight because in his mind, this meant his demise. He took the fight for the money and new he couldn’t win against monster Mike.
    I seen an interview prior to the fight with David Letterman and Spinks said “You know, you could die in the ring.” He was visually shaking when asked about the up and coming Tyson fight.
