In 1976, Spinks burst onto the boxing scene by winning a gold medal in the light heavyweight division at the Montreal Olympics. The following year, he made his professional debut and wasted no time making a name for himself. In 1978, Spinks shocked the world by defeating Muhammad Ali in a split decision to claim the heavyweight championship of the world. Unfortunately, Spinks' reign as champion was short-lived, as he lost the championship to Ali in a rematch just seven months later. Spinks continued to fight for several more years, but he was never able to reclaim the glory of his championship run. He retired from boxing in 1995 with a record of 26 wins, 17 losses, and 3 draws, and was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2017.

Despite his relatively short stint as heavyweight champion, Leon Spinks will always be remembered for his unexpected victory over Muhammad Ali. His underdog story and tireless work ethic continue to inspire young athletes around the world. Read even more about Leon Spinks at Wikipedia
