Moving closer to Muhammad Ali

In my last (ever) amateur boxing match, I got worked over at Cherokee Rec Center. In my corner was trainer Buddy Shaw.

Last night, Buddy Shaw was the primary corner man for Cory Spinks, in a world championship bout at Scottrade Center.

Also in the corner, was Cory’s dad, Leon Spinks.

Who, of course, way back in the day, defeated Muhammad Ali.

Even if it’s only me, I find this extremely hilarious. Gotta work this tenuous angle, somehow… who knows an editor at Ring Magazine?
