If anyone has a valid excuse for stepping back and basking in the glow of being undisputed welterweight champion, it's got to be Cory Spinks.
Entering his Showtime-televised championship bout against Miguel Angel Gonzalez on Saturday, Spinks has won his world title on hostile territory in Italy, and defeated Ricardo Mayorga and Zab Judah in successive bouts. It's been the culmination of a dream, one that would see most fighters exhale and say, "Whew, I've arrived. Let me enjoy this."
Yet Spinks has done the opposite of what most have expected from him; in fact, he's made a career of it. For him, this Saturday's fight is not the perceived easy victory against the Gonzalez of 2004; in his mind, he's fighting the Gonzalez of the early '90s.
