The Trinidad fight took his punch resistance.
If he couldnt take a punch he would have never been able to war with Ike, or gotten to the 12th round against Trinidad, or the 11th against Hoya.
But Tito took a huge chunk of it, and Hoya finished what was left.
Just imo but fighting Trinidad with barely over 20 fights is rushed by almost anyones standards.
