Only once has Ali come into the ring with both WBC and WBA belts, and come away with none - and that's due to Spinks

Spinks was such an underdog, no bookies would take money on him

RIP Spinks

Maybe he shouldn't have been such an underdog. Ali was absolutely destroyed by Norton in 1976, but the judges decided to give it to the old cash cow anyway. (No disrespect to Ali... he WAS and IS the greatest, but he shouldn't have been in the ring with Spinks in the first place.)
