--- 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?

Yes... I agree but he admitted it and redeemed himself by annihilating Magarito- he siad he had something to prove. Mosley gets crapped on but he forever has my respect for Fighting Vernon Forrest and Winky Wright twice.. also his destruction of margarito was classic

I watch William Joppy having early success and pushing Tito back, yet those hellacious shots??? Vargas said that before his fight with Tito he was told about his wraps. Joppy said that Tito;s punches had an unnatural feel to them

Oh sure he beat Magarito but the thing is its at lightweight I wonder if he was using. For that I can't trust the guy

Yes I agree.. I feel Tito was always wrapping those hands. That skinny bird chest in retrospect is suspect

I can't give anyone a pass for cheating. Now that's not to say that they've done it their entire career but when it's brought to the light a cloud of suspicion has to be placed over their careers and that's definitely true for Mosley and Trinidad

Pac wraps his hands the same way. I believe it was naasim that found this out to during the Mosley fight and got his hands re wrapped. if this dude was loading how the F would have whitaker and dlh stand up to this guys shots. Mayorga might be a tough sob but all the punches he took that fight you think with loaded gloves he would be in a coma.. I think behop and naasim were fishing as always and vargas and the others just wanted an excuse to justify their Ls.

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
