The op has done his math based on the percentage of the percentages.

This does not take into account the amount of actual punches thrown and the discrepancies involved in that.

For instance Pacs power punch percentage in the Mosley fight is 50%. But that does not take into account the amount more thrown by Pac compared to mosley and the fact that he actually only landed 31% of his total punches compared to the 44% landed by Floyd against Mosley.

This is a trend that occurs in all the stats, but distorts the fact that when you look at actual punches landed, the percentages are always far more in favor of Mayweathers accuracy
