Best Local Boxer 

Cory Spinks

Best local pugilist? It's gotta be Cory Spinks, 31-2, who snatched the International Boxing Federation's welterweight belt from Italian Michele Piccirillo this past April, after losing to him the year before. Spinks dominated the fight and won a unanimous decision. Managed by St. Louisan Kevin Cunningham and now a cog in Don King's boxing empire, Spinks has his sights set on a unification match with WBA/WBC welterweight champion Ricardo Mayorga, which would propel the son of former heavyweight champ Leon Spinks into the big time. Alas, Mayorga's being evasive. Could it be that he's....chicken?
