Exactly, Pacquiao relies on speed and athleticism but sadly both tend to be the first things to go with age. He's regressing from fight to fight. Floyd has lost a lot of foot speed and is also not the boxer he used to be, albeit less deteriorated than Pac due to superior skills. This fight with both fighters at their peaks in late 2009/early 2010 would have invigorated boxing (Floyd's peak was arguably a few years earlier but he was still magnificent three years ago).
