It appears that Felix "Tito" Trinidad is going to decide his next career move after watching this weekend's light heavyweight encounter between Bernard Hopkins and Joe Calzaghe. Depending on the outcome and the performance of Hopkins, Trinidad will decide whether he will pursue a rematch of their 2001 encounter or agree to a deal to fight Jermain Taylor in a catch-weight bout.

After several years of inactivity, Trinidad returned to the ring in January and lost a spirited decision to Roy Jones Jr. at the catch-weight of 170-pounds. Although Trinidad is tempted to fight Taylor, he's been very vocal about fighting Hopkins for the second time. He is also interested in Calzaghe, should the Welsh fighter win.

Felix Trinidad Sr, Tito's father/manager/trainer, told El Nuevo Dia that his son will be watching Saturday's fight with open eyes.

"We are going to watch the fight with Bernard Hopkins on Saturday and see where that leaves us. We will see how they perform in the fight and then we will speak with Don King to make a decision," Trinidad Sr said. "Tito is still analyzing (the Taylor offer). He is not 100% sure of what he will do. He is taking his time and looking at all of his options."

As I have said before. Why does he want to do this to his career. Is he having trouble putting food on the table or something? Plus what is he gonna do when Calzaghe wants to retire or fight someone else and what will he do when Hopkins makes his supposed HW move?

i really dont care for trinidad nomore, and i he used to be my favorite boxer! Trinidad for me is all washed out, Taylor will beat him, and so would Hopkins or Calzhage. Trinidad will never win again.

Not against a top fighter. I still say he'll bring all he has his best game to the ring if he was to fight Oscar again and I seriously doubt that he would fight again after a Oscar rematch.

Felix needs to find winnable fights or step away. He's going to get himself hurt.

So the former welterweight, who got kayo'd at middleweight, believes he can beat the same man who knocked him out this time, but at 175lbs, 29lbs above his best weight???

Oh so Trinidad will watch the fight then decide will he?? What friggin right has Trinidad got of even mentioning hopkins or calzaghes names let alone challenging them. He's fought once in over 3 years and got his ass kicked by a shot Roy Jones. I'm sure he had enough of Bernard when he kicked his ass all over the ring when they met first time Nard whupped him like a red headed stepchild :cheeky4::cheeky4:

It was impossible for Trinidad to stay at 147. He couldn't make the weight any more

I agree 100%. I used to be a big fan of Tito but now I really want him to fight Pavlik or Calzaghe so that he'll get destroyed and sent into retirement for good.

Whether fighting Hopkins or Calzaghe, Tito would get demolished. It wouldn't even be competative. If his father new what was good for him, he'd take him down a division instead of up. Tito has not carried his power beyond 160lbs and he couldn't even begin to hang with Master boxers like Hopkins or Calzaghe like he did with Roy in the early going.

It would look like Cotto-Gomez II.
