--- How long was he using his illegal handwraps.. He was hailed as the greatest and most deadliest puncher/finisher in the sport at around the time of the Middleweight Tournament --



The question of the hand wraps come into question? Did he have an unfair advantage? Or did he start the cheating as he moved up in preparation for being the Middlelwewight champ?

IMHO a skinny bird chest has nothing to do with what one's assessment may believe of a fighter's perceived punching power, if that' the case then Hearns shouldn't been able to KO anyone.

As far as Trinidad hand-wrapping issue then all we can go on is the assessment that his hands had been wrapped specially for the Hopkins fight and it was finally caught at that stage......it is possible that they were illegally wrapped for other fights but just like Margo we will never know for sure though we suspect he did it in other fights.




Dude Hearns had muscle-- lean muscle-- his back and shoulders were ripped. You could see his power before he even let a punch go

The point of this is that dude said that Tito had a skinny bird chest, which I replied has absolutely nothing to do with punching power. Is that not a fact?? Look at Hearn's chest, it has nothing to do with his punching power (which you're either born with or train to help develop more power/better technique to become a puncher) and in fact power starts in the legs-not the upper body.
