Trinidad was one of the the most accomplished,charismatic and most importantly exciting fighters of his generation.
Traditionally a slow starter,capable of being dropped by anyone who cracks him on the chin.Traditionally got up off of his arse and to hand out beatings of epic proportions.One of the most accurate power punchers seen in the sport in recent years.He threw every punch with intent and landed almost at will.The atmosphere at his fights were second to none.
The true "Baby Faced Assassin"
Ignore Roosters mediocre video.He is just trying to promote his youtube channel as he always has done.

Excellent power puncher early on. Had under-rated boxing skills and is an under rated counter puncher. Towards the tail end of his career came to rely more and more on his power and less on his boxing.
-Went after the very toughest fights. Other than Ike Quartery, who fell off the map for a bit after his decision loss to DLH, Trinidad fought the absolute best in each weight class he fought at.
-Pernell Whittaker considers his loss to Trinidad to be the first legit loss of his career.
-Trinidad and Hearns are almost unilaterally agreed hardest hitters in WW history. Trinidad was also a 2 handed fighter and had legit KO power in his right hand.
-Often dropped early in fights but flash KO's not truly hurt.
-Was a big WW but had most trouble with BIG very good defensive fighters when he moved up in weight.
-If he had won the MW unilateral championship after Hopkins he was planning on moving up in weight again to SMW to have a MEGAAAA fight with Roy Jones Jr. They were at the time considered the #1 and #2 p4p fighters in the world.
-He was baby faced but he swelled up relatively easily and is not above dirty tactics, including hit a fighter in the balls, forearm shoves which he used to setup rights and hooks.
-Overall a very exciting fighter to watch, held rarely, KO'd oppnents often and came to put on a show.

Bull****, Fiasco. Tito is an ENORMOUS puncher, you don't get that from wrapping your hands a little differently. He knocked Vargas down with one punch. Not like they were fighting, disengaged, then Tito came back and knocked him down with one blow. No. First punch of the fight knocked Vargas down and you have to remember that he had never been down before. Exciting fighter to watch, sharp, accurate power puncher who loved and fought for his people. What else is there to say?
