The Spinks fight is an interesting story. At that time EMM was on a winning streak and wanted to move up to heavyweight. Even though Spinks was his mandatory challenger, EMM took a fight with legit heavyweight contender Renaldo Snipes in May 1981. EMM came in at a soft 201 lbs and was easily handled in a decision loss. Exactly two months later Muhammad fought Spinks for the 175 lb title. He did well for about five rounds, but tired badly and lost the last ten. If he had skipped the Snipes fight EMM would have probably given Spinks a great fight. And that is no knock against Spinks.
