Forty-two years ago today,the one and only Muhammad Ali became boxing's first three-time heavyweight champ with a 15-round decision over Leon Spinks,who borrowed "The Greatest's" crown for seven months when "Neon Leon" decisioned Ali Feb. 15,1978 . (Spinks,67,who's said to have terminal cancer,is the first heavyweight champion who is younger than I;he was born July 11,1953 in St.Louis,Mo.,five days after Yours Truly was born in Windsor,Ont.,Can.)
