Many has many foot related problems

1- He crosses his legs to much when chasing
2- He cant cutoff the ring effectivey vs defensive minded fighters
3- He backs up from punches instead of swing to the right or left (not ass much of a problem recently)
4- He is also getting older ie slower on his feet
5- His southpaw style makes footwork more important and harder on him than other fighters
6- Cant fight backing up
7- Overall lack of ring general ship
cant argue with this

Then we can compare how both cut off the ring.
Watch Mayweather vs Mosley round 11. That is how Manny is suppose to cut the ring off.

LOL, hilarious examples you choose... Nice tags as well. Mayweather has better footwork though. Pac's feet may be faster though.

Because Mosley is running backwards?

Mosley would take 2 step backwards everytime Pac ****s his hands.

Unless you are one of those idiots that in order to cover distance, you must take a 45 degree direction.

Because there was a thread similar to this one where apparently the shortest distance between two points is a 45 degree either to the left or right.

It only works if you are able to corner an opponent to the ropes. But not when the opponent is literally running.

When have you seen Manny cut the ring off? Your saying he couldn't cut the ring off because he was running right? Alot of people think Floyd was running against Castillo. Castillo would cut the ring off and pound Floyd to the body. Show me a fight where Manny has cut the ring off and I will admit I was wrong.

He is going to have to turn on Fight Night and record a video of him playing with Manny and cutting off the ring in order to show you that.

Cutting off the ring is entirely a different topic.

I am not saying Pac is good at cutting off the ring. But it is a skill employed usually against opponents who employ mosley's style in the Pac fight.

Sure, he is not effective but he won the fight!!!! Is it not the goal of the fight, to win?

When you compare foot skills and suddenly you include a category of "cutting off the ring", what is the objective measure that Gayweather is better at cutting off the ring?

One thing is certain, Pac is not good cutting off the ring. But is Gayweather better at it?

It is hard to say because he never actually has to cut off the ring. All his opponents were coming forward. Even Gatti, who is a human punching bag was still coming forward. Even JMM had to initiate the actions most of the time. Even Mosley, who aimed for Usain Bolt's record against Pac was still coming forward.

Flomos would just jump into conclusions without any objective reasons.

Let us put this as a fact - Pac is not good cutting off the ring. How about Gayweather? Who knows?
