Nah, Trinidad was never a boxer. He'd throw the odd jab to meaure up his power punches, but was always mainly a puncher. Chavez, I like his technique. And I suppose he could box a bit too. But again, at his best, a grind you down type who applied pressure.

He fought Chavez in close and got the better of him too. And while he was better at long range, he was very comfortable at close range. He was more of a matador, yes.
