the line I've put in bold should ell you why alot fo people think floyds performance vs corrales was better.
alot of people in the know realized that tito was a powerful slugger with limited skills, he would logically be less effective against a bigger fighter. i picked hopkins to win that fight and he did.
with floyd though I was genuinely unsure. i thought corrales height and reach may cause problems but floys was simply masterful that night.
