Agreed. When I watch him I tend to think his footwork might be underrated. Man, not the best puncher but he could definitely get himself in position to punch. Offensively while being the aggressor, or whether he's off the back-foot and countering. A lot of fighters could learn a thing or two about getting their feet in position. It's probably the most important aspect of boxing.
