In an earlier article on BoxingScene.com, Christy Spinks, the wife of former two division champion Cory Spinks, revealed that her husband is hanging up the gloves. Spinks (39-8, 11KOs) lost a twelve round decision to Carlos Molina this past Friday in Chicago. Spinks has gone 3-5 in his last eight fights, including two TKO defeats to current IBF champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage.
In the retirement statement , Christy took a swipe at K9.
"As a wife I knew some fights ago that my husband wasn't himself. Any time you let K9 Bundrage beat you twice something is definitely wrong, because K9 Bundrage has absolutely no talent."
Shawana Brundrage, the manager and wife of K9 Bundrage, reached out to BoxingScene to respond:
I was disappointed to hear Spinks' wife's comments because we have each other's number. We text each other here and there. In the messages there's nothing but love, and success for one another and well wishes to each other's husband. We have also exchanged Facebook messages during those conversations; I showed her nothing but respect as a woman and love. Being a God-Fearing, born-again Christian as myself, I would give her encouragement in The Lord as well. The only reason why I responded is because we were in communication with each other. If that wasn't the case, I would have never responded.
Her comments were very unprofessional but she's entitled to her own opinion, I have nothing bad to say about Spinks' wife. I pray that she finds peace in her heart towards K9. I also pray for the success of her marriage, and the success of raising their beautiful daughter they share.
