Cornelius Bundrage vs. Cory Spinks Fight Preview and Pick to Win
At the Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida, IBF 154-pound champion Cornelius “K-9” Bundrage will defend his belt against ex-Welterweight Champion Cory Spinks on June 23. This is a rematch from an August 2010 bout--won by Bundrage via 5th-round TKO. It was another surprising triumph for the late-blooming Bundrage, whose rise to the top of the division has been inspirational.
For years, Bundrage toiled. Following a first-round KO loss to Sechew Powell in 2005, he was cast on the Contender TV series. It’s difficult to not recall how some cast members mocked “K-9” and his skills. Well, now Bundrage is champ and where are those guys? He got the last laugh. And while he’s been fighting only once a year, he has scored some nice wins--including the knockout over Spinks and a rematch decision over Powell in his last fight--where Bundrage was surprisingly dominant.
