hear me out too, because unlike most, its not a blatant overestimation of Alexander because I hate Tito. and I do hate Tito.
but Alexander can beat him. why? Because Tito does not like to get hit. he doesnt stand in the pocket longer then he has to in order to set up the takedown. unlike Rampage, his defensive coverup has no head movement, so opponents, like Chuck did, can just throw through the shield and land bombs.
Tito also telegraphs takedowns once his opponent pressures him, when Chuck started in on Tito and didnt just counter his shots, Tito had nothing left to try but a bad shot. Houston showed mediocre wrestling against Sakara, but i think it was more surprise at the boxer's takedown than anything.
if Houston comes in with the cardio and gameplan to win this one, to pressure Tito constantly from bell to bell with his heavy hands in close range exchanges, stops throwing knees that could get him taken down, than he could TKO Tito before the takedown
