Funny how things can change, I remember back when people were complaining that Cain had pillow fists after the Kongo and Rothwell fights then he knocked Nogueira into another life time.
The Nelson fight was a war and if anyone hasn't seen it you need to google it instantly, not many could have taken the damage Junior dished out in that one, I don't think Cain could have. That's why I feel confident in Junior if the fight turns into the war everyone wanted in the first fight, Nelson hits hard and Junior took his best.
