A lot of people forget that the early Tito didn't rely exclusively on his power; in fact, he was quite adept at jabbing his way in, and tracking down a mobile opponent ( witness his fight against a faded, but still skilled Camacho as proof). Since Benitez was never the most ardent of trainers, and since Trinidad generally came on the later portion of most of his fights, I think he finds a way to land his powershots late in the fight, and stops El Radar in the later rounds.
Whilst avoiding a choice i think many are simply remembering Tito by the Winky fight much like some do with RJJ.

Exactly. Tito was a much more well rounded fighter early in his career, and, if Bruce Curry could penetrate Benitez's defence, and if Carlos Palomino could fight him close, I see no reason why Trinidad couldn't do the same, if he was at his best.
