i think it also puts your awareness on higher level, because all moves that mayweathers are practicing are the most common in boxing.
f.e. parrying jab, shoulder rolling opponents right and going back with a right uppercut.
why i always start with "i think" is because i never seriously tried it. I got some "Coach Ricks" videos and did the basic things with my friend for maybe a round and that was it.
If i am coach i would never learn a newbie with this kind of stuff, but after some time, after seriously studying and learning this padding style i would maybe incorporate it in training and mix it with traditional style. world class modern boxers are doing it, it must have some benefits.
