The overrated and overhyped Cooney lasts about 30 seconds less than Golota did against Lennox. An extreme mismatch

I know, Sonny. It was hyperbole on my part. I always thought Holmes was a bit tentative in that fight. But he did a masterful job despite the several low blows. Still think Lennox beats Cooney, as Cooney would have drowned in the late rounds. Plus, Lewis was knocked out by right hands and Cooney's big punch was the left hook.

cooney chops lewis down within 2 rounds,lennox would be an easy target for the hard punching cooney and would not be able to wither the constant left hooks to the body and finally to the jaw,

Spinks , Holmes and Cooney fought like shit. Lewis was always suspect to get hurt , but nothing unusual about it , just not one of the best chins.
Larry Holmes was vulnerable too , and he knew it , which is why he fought as bad as he did , and this is after watching all of their fights against another , and then a little more from each one of them , I was never impressed by neither one of them.
And back to Cooney , he was stopped in his biggest 3 fights , won because of cuts against Jimmy Young , and hit Norton while he was down , which even takes from his biggest wins.

You know nothing of either Holmes or Spinks if you think they're "poor fighters". This is obviously a case of not knowing what you're watching. Either that or you're deluded into thinking that the robotic Eastern Euro amatuer style is somehow superior to all others (Newsflash: It isn't. If anything it's poorly suited to the pro game). Keep imbibing your fairy dust there Hot Shot :hypnotised9:

that is a good question and i dont know,if there were rematches would the outcome of been different,i dont know,i do know that holmes and spinks where at the top of their game and with all this white hype surrounding cooney he had an enormous deal of pressure on him,even though that should be no excuse,he was not able to execute is left hook,he was basically a left hook fighter and the way holmes and spinks kept moving to their lefts i9t made it hard for cooney to catch them,lewis does not have the foot work of holmes or spinks and would of walked into a cooney left
