Default Re: Tito's Notable Opponents, WOW!

Nobody forgets about Tito, his achievements at WW including a much clearer win against Pernell, against Hoye even though every reasonable person has to say it was controversial but nobody told Oscar to back away and box in the Championship rounds, but how could anyone forget the tears in the eyes of Tito after his unforgetable war with Vargas in the post fight presser when he was under Don King. Only Hopkins stopped his rise and he still came back to win another thriller with a stronger than ever Mayorga at 160 and Cheriff but most unfortunatelly for him and for shane Mosley, those two guys who beat Hoya lost the chance to fight for the WBC-WBA-IBF SWW titles and both were upset by Winky Wright, specially tito who basically said goodbye back then. His fight with RJJ doesn't mean anything and I'm glad he stood up until the end and on offense. I simply laugh when people talk about Cotto and JuanMa Lopez and completely disregard guys like Tito, Wifred Benitez, Carlos Ortiz and Hector Camacho Sr, even Esteban De Jesus knocked down Duran in two fights in the very first round and haded to him his first loss.
