If there wasn't a blocking of feet, I don't think anyone can say that he would have lost balance in the same manner
The punch alone wouldn't do it
Same thing happened in the beggining of that gif, and Floyd was even probably a litle stunned by Hatton, but he didn't have the issue with his feet so he was able to stay upright
He gets hit coming in for a right hand to the stomach by Hatton, gets knocked off balance and doesn't go over
Gets hit coming in for a right to the stomach by Judah, this time his foot is behind Judah so has to pull his leg backwards..and he stumbles backwards (so does Judah)
