What a great war!!!! Jackson-Mugabi!
I see exactly this kind of fight!! But I think that the Pre-Hagler Mugabi had a better chin than Jackson. I know that Hard Rock Green had him in trouble BIG time. But Jackson had a china chin. The pre-Hagler Mugabi had a good chin that was tested (Hard Rock Green) and Beast came back to win.
On this fight, EITHER could go at any moment. This could be Corrales-Castillo round 10 or Lee-Locicero Round 5 take your pick. But I don't think it even goes more than 3 rounds! If Jackson could bomb and hurt Mugabi, maybe even flooring him, I could see Mugabi roaring back to win maybe in the same round or at most two rounds later!
If Mugabi hurt Jackson with something very bad, I don't think he recovers. This is one of those fights where they could fight 5 times and you could get:
Mugabi KO 1
Jackson KO 2
Mugabi TKO 3
Jackson TKO 1
Mugabi KO 5
Jackson for the most part has to win within two rounds against the pre-Hagler Mugabi or he doesn't win. Mugabi would have to do what the pre-Hagler version never did, whether those first two rounds, where Jackson would be a fighting terror and than The Beast starts with his bombs. One thing is for sure. Nobody sees the end of round 5 and that is being generous as to how long this fight goes.
