No, it's just part of it. If you add that to the other stuff, not reacting well under fire, being static at the moment of impact, bracing himself, not looking particularly loose apart from sporadic moments. The tension prevented him from reacting instinctively the whole time. Floyd was able to make Sonny miss, and he was able to land, I accept that but conviction was absent and even glancing blows made too much of an impression because he appears too tense under fire.
