He actually did look to clean house, but got old and sloppy in the process.

Don King would not let Tito fight him after the pasting he gave his other meal ticket, JCC.

He was set to fight Quartey in 1996 but got stuck on Rivera and wasted time rematching him and eventually when he did look to fight Quartey he was already a drug addict and got suspended when the fight was in the works.

Around 1995 I think he could beat Tito and Quartey if he was in serious shape. Would have added to his legacy quite a bit if he did it. Even if he did though, I'm not sure that catapult's him over Leonard.
