    Rematch with Kostya ? What a fight.

    Judah (33-2, 1 NC, 24 KOs), of Brooklyn, N.Y., ruined the homecoming of Spinks
    in front of 22,370 who turned out to watch their local hero. In a terrific,
    determined performance, Judah dropped Spinks with a big left hand at around the
    two-minute mark of the ninth. A groggy Spinks beat the count and tried to
    continue, but Judah continued to land punches and the referee stepped the bout
    at 2:49. After eight completed rounds of the grudge rematch, Judah was ahead by
    the scores of 79-73, 78-78 and 77-75. Judah, a former two-time world champion
    at 140 pounds, fought more aggressively and tried to press the action
    throughout. He said he would be willing to box Spinks a third time.
