While I agree with Douglas being considered a "tomato can" going "in" as a 40-1 underdog, Spinks, a then thought of a worthy opponent (31-0 as you point out), became a "tomato can" after the fact, whenever he got knocked out as quickly as he did. Which, BTW lends itself to the demise of Heavy Weight Boxing (as we all knew it)....

Sure there was Lennox Lewis, maybe another or two... BUT EFFFFF, what the hell happened to Boxing at the bigger weight????
