Esp. in the Cotto fight. The lead rights were not working real early, so he started to loop them. When Cotto adjusted Floyd when back to the lead right. I don't think RG is anymore the fighter Cotto is and Cotto could never get his feet set to take advantage.
I'm not favoring Robert to win, I doubt he'll do better than Cotto did, but that isn't the first time Floyd has reached when pressuring on the front foot. He has only a few bad habits, but leaning in with his chin exposed and lifting his rear foot when lunging is one of them. He's gotten away with it most of the time because most fighters would rather pressure than make him lead, and they walk right into it.
