I don't know.

Trinidad is definitely the bigger guy in there, he's rangy and accurate, but I can definitely see Floyd stinking out the joint and winning a dull decision, using a lot of lateral movement and being on the backfoot, landing the straight right hand (what Tito was suspectible to), and making Tito look very flat-footed.

Tito boxes very flat footed, and it will be hard for him to find an elusive boxer like mayweather. The fight would probably be the same thing for all 12 rounds. MAyweather is going to move, pot shot Tito to a UD

Judging from the Hopkins and DLH fights, I think this was would be a very wide UD for Mayweather. He'd be potting shotting Trinidad all night, who's a very stationary fighter.

Yeah, Mayweather is the Anti-Trinidad.Tito's style is tailor made for Weeping Boy.Felix would march into punches all night.

I don't mean to be disrespectful to Tito, but this would be ugly. Tito had problems with boxers and lateral movement. Bad matchup stylistically for him. Wide UD with possible knockdowns.

No, I'm thinking of Tito's balance. While Tito would not be hurt, and definitely not in the kind of trouble Diego was in, the sharp punches of Floyd have an above-average chance of producing a knockdown.

In no way is Tito in danger of being stopped, but I've always considered his balance to be poor. Poor enough for Floyd to catch him on the go once or twice.

This fight goes one of two ways in my estimation. Either Floyd loses a UD due to literall running all night after feeling Tito's power, or FLoyd wins a decision based on effective scoring. My guess is the latter. Tito was stationary and I assume Floyd would land a lot, but there would be no knockdowns, and I believe Tito would make Floyd feel his power. A prime Tito was no joke. Floyd by UD, not neccessarily wide though.
I think there's a decent chance he does run all night. I mean, we saw how unwilling he was to put punches together against an old DLH. Prime Tito will stalk him relentlessly all night long and is much bigger and harder hitting than DLH - and he doesn't let up down the stretch.

Tito isn't going to be discouraged by Floyd's pot shots. I look back even to the Hopkins fight, where Tito got an absolute pasting: his response in the later rounds was to attack Hopkins even more, not to retreat, despite getting hit hard and often. What I'm saying is that Tito has the heart to walk through anything Floyd has to give and assert himself on Floyd.

Floyd may be good enough to dodge all of Tito's shots, but I have a feeling at some point (and probably earlier than most think) Floyd tastes it and wants none of it from there on in.

Tito 7-5.

Good to see someone giving Tito a chance. He's the far bigger man and has ATG power at 147. I think he has a punchers chance in this one, PBF has never faced this much class and power rolled into one.

For sure mate. And to add to the intrigue, you have the issue of Floyd's bad hands to contend with. Look at how defensive Floyd became against Baldomir when he hurt his hand. Should that happen against Tito he will be in all sorts of trouble. Tito has a good chance in this one.
