Default Re: How come short fighters no longer use the bob and weave?

manny can't even cut a ring off or fight on the inside let alone bob n weave. He's as far as you can get from being a swarmer. Fighting inside as a southpaw doesn't utilize the unorthodox southpaw angles.
But what if Floyd move up to SMW and fight someone like Carl Froch? Do you think that a bob and weave tactic will be a nightmare for Froch?
Manny is short, so won't the bob and weave be perfect for him?
What about Broner? He's another midget that could really dominate with that style?
