Overall Floyd is more accurate considering ALL punches.....which means the Jab....Floyd uses the jab religiously....and he's very accurate with that punch.

Pac is a more accurate power puncher...he throws more power punches in combination but doesn't use the jab as much or in the same way Floyd uses it.

Both men have great stats when it comes to their offensive output but in this one area of accuracy of their power punches, Pac is actually more efficient..

No he just needed to bring Marquez up 3 weight classes in about a year at the age of 35, then ignore the weight agreement and come in at whatever weight he liked.

He needed those judges vs Castillo though

a lot of people on ESB don't know shit about boxing, and think Pac is not an accurate puncher. It's hilarious. You'll probably get lambasted for a very good thread bringing forth solid information.

Pacquiao throw more punches and is a combination puncher, both these things redcue accuracy. On top of this Pacquiao is a harder puncher and throws harder puncher, another thing that will effect accuracy.

We also have to forget about the jab as the jab is use to open a defence and find range, so it can be used effectively even though it is not landing.

Pacquiao also lands his punches right on the button, bang on the chin, Mayweather punches are more scoring punches.

Pacquiao landed an astonishing 50% of his power punches against Mosley while Mayweather landed an impresiive 46%, still 4 % less than Pacquiao. And Mosley was in defensive mode when facing Pacquiao and Pacquiao was throwing more punches than Mayweather.

Pacquiao also had a 15% edge over Mayweather in their respective fights with Cotto. And higher percentages against Hatton and Oscar too.


Lets look at a some punch stats

Pacquiao vs Bradley
190 / 493: 39%

Pacquiao vs Marquez III
117 / 274: 43%

Pacquiao vs Mosley
177 / 353: 50%

Pacquiao vs Margarito
411 / 713: 58%

Pacquiao vs Clottey
232 / 682: 34%

Pacquiao vs Cotto
276 / 560: 49%

Pacquiao vs Hatton
65 / 105: 62%

Pacquiao vs De la Hoya
195 / 333: 59%

Pacquiao's 8 fight Average: 49.3%


Mayweather vs Cotto
128 / 381: 34%

Mayweather vs Ortiz
61 / 125: 49%

Mayweather Mosley
123 / 267: 46%

Mayweather Marquez
105 / 177: 59%

Mayweather vs Hatton
100 / 257: 39%

Mayweather vs De La Hoya
138 / 241: 57%

Mayweather vs Baldomir
131 / 258: 51%

Mayweather vs Judah
145/295 49%

Mayweather's 8 fight average 48%



So the stats back it up Pacquiao is more accurate, by 1.3% in power punches.


What makes this even more remarkable is that Pacquiao is a volume puncher an aggressor and he throws combinations, three things that should reduced your accuracy, so if Pacquiao would fight Mayweather's pot shot defensive style his accuracy would go up even further.

Fighting the way Pacquiao does makes it much harder to land, so for Pacquiao to already in front of Mayweather just shows how much more accurate a puncher is Pacquiao.


Poll Coming!!!!

It is shocking how people ignore the facts and reasoning when it doesn't suit their agenda or conflicts with their beliefs.

What is worse is that they can't even produce a coherent argument against the facts and reasoning, and they just resort to schoolyard insults.
