The Spinks Used to Having Small Odds
Nat Gottlieb has a good writeup about Cory Spinks on hbo.com. From All In the Family:
The Spinks men have always fought bigger than their size. That is why it would be a sizable mistake to dismiss Cory Spinks’ chances of beating middleweight champion Jermain Taylor on May 19. Where some men look up and see a mountain, the Spinks clan just sees something to climb.
Mt. Taylor is obviously bigger and stronger than Spinks, but the junior middleweight champion has some family history on his side.
