Default Re: If Pacquiao's head doesn't snap back when punched by JMM...

They were grazing shots that aren't easy to spot on TV unless you slow things down. That's probably why the compubox stats were in Pac's favour. The better, more noticeable shots were coming from JMM, whilst the grazing, unclean punches in higher numbers were Pac's.

Also, it's important to note JMM's head rarely ever snaps back from punches. He has a pretty stiff neck. Whilst Pac, with his floppy hair, can be spotted a mile away when he's hit. Shit, even the ones he blocks with his glove make it look like he's been smacked by a hayemaker.


Nice observation. I notice that too when Pac lands, it's on the tip of his reach.
