Trinidad Feels He Would Have Beaten Mayweather

By Elisinio Castillo

Puerto Rican icon Felix "Tito" Trinidad, who this past weekend was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, feels very confident about his ability to defeat Floyd Mayweather Jr. - if they collided at welterweight or junior middleweight.

Trinidad was asked if there was one active fighter that he would have liked to face in his era, and the fighter Trinidad selected was Mayweather. When Trinidad was a dominating force at welterweight, Mayweather was fighting several weight divisions below.

"I would have liked to fight [Mayweather]. At 147-pounds I proved to be the best. On 15 occasions I defended my title and in my 15th defense against Oscar De La Hoya I unified the title by decision," Trinidad told Hoy Deportes.

"I think I had everything [necessary] to beat Floyd Mayweather at 147 or at 154. With my boxing and my physical condition, fighting on the outside or the inside, if there were twelve rounds at some point I would have caught him.

After 5 or 6 nut hits anything is possible.

[QUOTE=DuckDodgers;14650679]2014 Floyd beats a prime Trinidad in a competitive but clear fight (think Mayweather-Cotto). 2004-2009 Floyd makes a prime 147 Tito look almost as bad as Hopkins made him look at 160. Nightmare stylistic matchup for Tito IMO.[/QUOTE] 2014 floyd?...mayweather-cotto?…
