Trinidad is going to separate mayorga's head from his body. Im going to love seeing that happen. But mayorga does have a puncher's chance so anything can happen.

Remember Ernie Shavers, helluva puncher but never won the BIG one. Boxers are better than brawlers. The only reason Tyson had that run back in the 80's is because the pool was weak in "boxers." See Holyfield, boxer.

Yeah I do remember Ernie Shavers. He fought for the Heavyweight Title twice and lost both times. He lost a 15RD UD against Muhammad Ali and he was KO'd in the 11th by Larry Holmes in his second attempt to win a title. He had a pretty decent record too.

Classy guy too. If his handlers had concentrated more on boxing skills, he may have won it.
