All these are pick 'em fights for me. Especially the Tito vs Jackson and Patterson vs Charles.

Tito was just as big as Jackson, and both could hurt the other. There's a temptation to write Trinidad off in this, but that's a mistake; Jackson had the same stalking style, going backwards very rarely. It would be a matter of who imposed their will on the other, and Tito had a hell of alot of determination and willpower. I wouldn't be surprised at any outcome in this one.

Patterson and Charles is interesting because both were fast-handed guys who could box or slug. Patterson has a power advantage while Charles is probably a bit smarter and more adaptable. Patterson had the habit of slugging when it wasn't necessary or wasn't in his best interest. This is a high-level shootout that could get dramatic at any point.
