Cory Spinks: 'Blessed with a gift'
Cornelius 'K9' Bundrage says he might give Cory Spinks the same brutal treatment as the last time they met when the pair go head-to-head again this weekend.
The IBF light-middleweight world champion defends his title against the No.1-rated contender at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California on Saturday.
Bundrage beat Spinks in a one-sided fight that lasted five rounds to take the belt from the former undisputed welterweight champion in impressive style back in August 2010.
And, while he expects to employ different tactics this time around, the 39-year-old from Detroit said he may just give Spinks a reminder of the their last encounter.
"I didn't expect I would fight Cory Spinks like that the first time. I expect to fight him differently this time, but I might just go out there and bulldog him again."

"I think it's going to be a great performance," he said. "I'm going to go out there and give it my all. I didn't expect I would fight Cory Spinks like that the first time.
"I expect to fight him differently this time, but I might just go out there and bulldog him again. Cory Spinks is not the champ anymore. I'm the champ now."
Spinks however, says he was badly prepared when he was beaten by Bunrdage last time and promised fans they would see different man enter the ring on Saturday.
"Fans are going to see the total package on Saturday. I'm ready. I've been blessed with a gift. I didn't have to learn how to box."
