"Michael Spinks survived near knockdowns in the 14th and 15th rounds Saturday night to win a split decision over Larry Holmes and retain his IBF heavyweight title. With both fighters spent, Holmes nevertheless summoned enough power in a series of right hands to send Spinks walking helplessly around the ring late in the 14th round. Holmes didn't have enough to finish him off, and Spinks controlled most of the toe-to-toe 15th round with unanswered flurries to Holmes' head. However, Holmes buckled Spinks' knees, and the champion spent the final seconds dancing backward out of trouble." - United Press International
