Which Current Fighter Would You Want Backing You Up in an Alley Fight?

 Between rounds, they showed me hitting him [Leon Spinks] with that elbow then hitting him with the hook. I always made sure the referee was on the other side. The referee would always go over to your left side and I would hit the guy with the right elbow and the left hook. Gotta be a rocket scientist to figure that out, you know

You know, about Spinks, it bothered me that Cosell took advantage of him and really ripped into him. Here's a guy who had a degree in law and all this and he's ripping a kid from East St. Louis. Leon never said he was a genius. What he said was "I can fight". One of the things I remember when he won the title, the day after the title fight, they showed a picture in the paper with his wife and he was buying her a ring, you know. It said his money won't last long this way. I thought "what do you care? -- it's his wife".

Commentatot Pat Summerall once said that if they were in an alley fight, they would want Scott LeDoux at their side. A darn good choice, but that was then and this is now.

Based on his background, I'd feel pretty safe with Russian-born Roman “Made in Hell” Karmizin watching my back. But guys who do their dirty work in the alleys can be formidable and lacking in remorse, so maybe I would need Golata to fight fire with fire as in fighting dirty. But any guy with a nickname like Karmizin’s is a guy I want watching my back in the alley.
