Sure it does, that's why nobody considers Robinson's defense really more than anything above average, thanks to his feet and reflexes. That's why I love him, he didn't give a **** half the time and you couldn't stop him. He's endeared to me more for what he was as a puncher than boxer. I don't know that Floyd would be able to exploit those holes to any degree of consequence. Robinson will be busier and throwing the harder leather. All he'd need is get one opening to land a solid right hand through the shell and Floyd could be up ****'s creek.
