Going into this fight, Tito is going to be pretty horrendously banged up, yeah, Tito'll have an excuse, but he's been putting off a couple of surgeries and is just broken down at this juncture of his career with his neck and back surgeries and fusions etc. I genuinely wonder if he'll even make it to the fight without dropping out due to injury.
I'll be quite surprised if they both stay healthy to make it to the PPV, wonder who they'd have as a replacement, Mo or maybe Frank?
This fight has actually got me curious. Not a bad way to get viewers.
I thought the setup of bringing Tito out was great. Having said that;
1) They should have kept Jackson's lines very short
2) The should have let Tito use the teleprompter (Neither guy can talk trash without sounding goofy)
3) Both are past their prime which makes this fight not so great
Put Jackson in against *their top guys and it would be a better fight, e.g. Mo, Emanuel. He's lost a lot but still can decently box with power and take some punishment. If Tito can move as he did against Bader then he may put in a few good fights. But I just don't see these two guys putting on a show together. I think they need a hungry fighter who's looking to make a mark at the expense of a vet's name.
