It Stinks 

The latest installment of what should be an ongoing series called "How We Discard Old Boxers" appeared Dec. 21 on the web site of The Boston Globe. It is entitled "Riches to rags - Years after gaining world fame and fortune, it's been a hard fall from glory for Leon Spinks" and written by Globe staffer Stan Grossfeld.

The 52-year-old Spinks, the former world heavyweight champion who once beat Muhammad Ali and was an Olympic gold medalist and a marine, is now broke and suffering from dementia. Presently he works as a weekend custodian for $5.15 an hour at a local YMCA in Columbus, Nebraska, and also part-time unloading trucks at a McDonald's.

And what happened to the $3.75 million he made from Ali-Spinks 2? It all went to his lawyers. "The money they stole. They stole all my money," he told The Globe.

Happy holidays.
