Default Re: Manny Pacquiao is a More accurate Power puncher than Floyd Mayweather.

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
Pacquiao does not use the jab as a scoring punch as Mayweather does, he uses it to blind, feint, open the guard, and to set up his combos.

The punch is doing it's job and most of the time the job is not even landing.
