    Ali in the second half of his career used more punches than he threw away.
    a lot of fight in 15 rounds that he would have won easily before the limit.
    example Chuck wepner, jimmy young, alfredo evangelista...
    he was boxing for the money at that time.
    he even accepted exhibition fights like against inoki
    very disappointing show.
    norton should have won the 3rd fight against Ali

    I was at this fight sitting ringside, right near Ali's corner.
    Was there with my father. I was a 14 year old kid at the time, I look back on that night as one of the most fond memories I have of my childhood and of my dad who's long since passed away.

      Ali was a hero in our house. I watched this fight with my dad when I was 13 on an old black and white TV in England. Exactly the same as you , it is something that I remember from my childhood. Watching it now I have to give so much respect to Spinks who was a fair and honest fighter . He never threw any sly shots after the breaks and was just outboxed. Ali is an example to anyone who calls them self a man.

    In my young days my parents always allowed me to let me see the Ali-fights live in TV.. the fights was always in the middle of the night or in the earliest hours of the morning.. l saw all the fights and even today it give's ne goosbomps when l look at this re-match.. l was devasted after Ali lost the first fight, but as he was told the Reporters after the decision that he was not serious enough... but then, this re-match was a completly different kind of Boxing: Ali was dancing like he never did in the last 5, 6 years. I remember that l almost could not believe what l just witnessed... today, we know that he should not fight at all, especially after the "Thrilla in Manilla"... he should retire.. but l also can imagine that he still felt strong enough to go back into the ring and also there was his huge Entourage. And they wanted (and needed) A "fighting" Ali because the big money was in the fights.. but it is history.. l just can't express my Sympathie's and my admiration for Muhammad Ali.. he was willing to go into jail because he refuse to go into a war. He accept the very unfair decision that he lost his title and that he was not allowed to fight in a Boxing ring.. but he accept it - and he came back.. he came back 3 times, and people did not believe in him anymore. But he always makes the impossible real...this fight was the perfect example: noone really believed that he was able to stand on his feets for 15 rounds - but he did.. and how he did it.. Ali is still the greatest and he will be that forever. He was a phenomen

    The announcers talk about Ali for the first 5 rounds like he is the shell of the man he used to be as the former Champion and how he is too old now then as soon as he starts winning the fight they talk about him like he is the greatest hero of all time..Of course He was always the greatest fighter win or even if he lost this fight ...To suggest otherwise was stupid...Announcers are fair weather fans...if your winning your great if not then your washed up

      I know Leon Spinks was not really a great heavyweight but Ali really turned back the clock for one last good performance. And I am not saying he was great here but he did manage to stay on his toes for 15 rounds. He had not done that in years. He trained very hard for this rematch.

  • Phil Brooks
    Phil Brooks 5 days ago +1

    Ali was completely shot by this time.
    He avoided a lot of fighters who could have beaten him like Larry Holmes

  • Bobby Wise
    Bobby Wise 3 months ago +10

    Leon Spinks was the unofficial leader of the great 1976 Olympic team that earned 4 gold medals for the USA. Unlike 1984 the 1976 Olympics was fully represented by the Russians and more importantly the Cuban's.
    The Cuban's were really professional fighters and typically dominated amateur boxing. Leon and his little brother Michael along with Ray Leonard and Howard Davis represented us well.
    Leon had very poor management as a pro and frankly screwed his life up with drugs and partying. He was rather small for a heavyweight but the cruiserweight division had not been created yet.
    Michael is probably a top 5 light heavyweight all time. His right hand was called the Spinks Jinx. He moved up and managed to beat an aging Holmes for the heavyweight title. Holmes seemed to have won the rematch but somehow the judges gave it to Michael. Of course Tyson only needed 90 seconds to end his reign.

    • Bobby Wise
      Bobby Wise Month ago

      @Matthew Nikitas You are correct. Although by then he was totally spent.. He fought Qawi, a fighter Michael did beat, and got stopped inside of 3 I believe. Qawi was a tough cruiserweight though. Holyfield struggled against Quawi in their first fight.
      If Leon had anything left when he got in the ring with Holmes, it ended there . Holmes got angry and beat Leon badly in an early stoppage.
      Leon had a great amateur carrier and perhaps could have been a competitive heavyweight. I think cruiserweight was created around 1980. But after taking the title from a washed up Ali he was never the same. He liked to party too much. But nevertheless he showed tremendous stamina and heart in that first Ali fight. Ali assumed the young fighter would not be able to last 15 rounds but he did. Of course Ali was in terrible shape for the first fight.
      But as many have said he would not have been a contest for a prime Ali, Norton , Foreman, Holmes and the list could go on.

    Another sign of Ali's decline, missing a lot, timing off, slow reflexes, etc. Such a huge change from just 3 years earlier when his hands were so swift against Wepner. Ali actually looked worse in this fight than the first, but Spinks went against him with nothing at all

    I grew up in LV and though never saw any of Ali's fights live, I did see a sparing nsession when he was getting ready for the Jerry Quarry fight, at the old Thunderbird Hotel. It was packed but we got up within a few rows of ringside and the 1st thing I noticed was that Ali was a BIG MAN, much bigger in person than what I'd seen on tv! And FAST, also faster in person. There were 3 sparring partners, one in each corner and he'd slap the carp out of one, take a break, then slap the crap out of the 2nd guy, take a break and then do the same for the 3rd!! It was very ammusing, and he was having fun, but mostly VERY IMPRESSIVE!!!.

      @Michael Harris We all agree that Leon would have been a total mismatch to either prime Ali or prime Tyson. But had he been managed better and not got involved with drugs he had potential to be a much better fighter than he was. He would never have been a great heavyweight in my opinion but could have been a good one, and if cruiserweight had existed at the time he may have been great at that weight.

    I remember watching this fight live on TV. The commentary by Ferdie Pacheco who was ridiculously biased as he gushed over Ali who missed or barely grazed Spinks with a boatload of attempted punches every round while Spinks had more effective and higher punch connection percentage . Ali had his crowd there and he entertained them but all of his constant grabbing and holding Spinks, which he was never warned nor had a point deducted was the sign of a champion especially when Ali threw very few effective punches. Remember, to be the champ you have to beat the champ. Ali did not convince me and many boxing experts that he beat Spinks.

      @tom11zz884 Both of y'all are correct. Ali and Frazier gave all in Manila and neither fighter had a lot left afterwards. But Ali did manage to get in tremendous shape for the Spinks rematch. He danced the entire fight and not many thought he could do that still. Ideally he retires after Manilla and doesn't take the punishment he took from Shavers.
      But coming out of retirement in poor health to face an all time great champ in his prime was very foolish. Even 1966 Ali would have had a tough fight with prime Holmes. But a combination of age, too many hard battles and a misdiagnosis of hypothyroidism had him in terribly condition in1980. At least he got off the thyroid medication before his Berbick fight and was competitive. But father time had caught up to him and it was over.

      He fought in the best era of heavyweights and beat everyone. Some people have been more dominant, like Holmes and Wlad Klitschko, but they were around in very weak eras for heavyweights. Ali never struggled in his prime (the 60s) and lost what might have been his best years with his three years out the ring. Indeed in the 70s he struggled with Frazier and Norton, but he avenged those losses. I can鈥檛 think of any heavyweight from any era that comes close to Ali.

      Ali (probably) did enough to earn this decision, but he was really on the decline here. His punches had no authority, he was slow. Luckily his defensive minded tactics were enough to keep Spinks off of him. I think the judges had it more generously in Muhammad Ali鈥檚 favor than what the reality was.
