He doesn't have to walk them down. Realize that. He can fight Manny on the back foot all day long bc Manny can't cut that ring off and Manny does not commit to the jab at all which is something you need to even bother Floyd.

Guess you missed the fights with Judah and Corley

And it not the jab that bothers Floyd, it is the left hand

i disagree. He has success against southpaws when he walks them down with a high guard. When he doesn't he struggles.

I'd love it if he tried to walk manny down with a high guard.

The Manny fight would earn floyd more money than any other fight. It would also boost him in legacy rankings into one of the greatest of all time - Boosting his future earning s in future fights and advertising to rediculous levels.

If it was easy, he would have just fought him by now

Even his Uncle and trainer said you need a jab to beat Floyd and he is the one training him.

Floyd has the size, reach, and footwork advantage against Manny. He doesn't need to walk him down at all. By the way Judah and Corley always sparred with Floyd in the gym so they knew each other very well so I don't look into that much.

Floyd and the Mayweathers know their boxing, and there is a reason why they have chose to avoid Pacquiao, they know there is a very real possibility that Floyd loses because of Pacquiao attributes.

If Floyd really thought this was an easy nights work, it happens a long time ago.

When he doesn't he struggles? Wtf. Floyd has only lost a total of 4 rounds against 6 or 7 Southpaws brah. Is that struggling in your book?

That the difference between you and me, I got my knowledge from watching the fights and seeing Floyd's style, you got it from quotes from other people.

**** are you talking about ****? I have seen all of each guys fights. Can Manny cut off the ring? No. Does he have a good jab? No. Floyd doesn't have to walk him down based off of those two things alone. If Floyd decides to walk him down its going to be smart educated pressure and he will bust Manny the **** up. Now if you really want to break down style then we can.

For floyd that is yes haha.

Corley he admits as his toughest fight. And Corley isn't very good. floyd was winning the rounds but he took alot of shots because he was struggling with the awquard angles.

Judah was winning the rounds till floyd started to walk him down.


Logic does say floyd wins. But there's a reason Floyd chose ask for testing instead of be involved in the biggest fight of the century. He isn't as confident as you are thats for sure

it doesn't justify floyd cheating marquez off the scales especially that jmm has never fought above 135 at the time. the least floyd could do is make the weight.

Still on about the jab?

If you think you know why Floyd struggles with the jab, tell me, or is it that you don't really know and you just heard it somewhere

If Miguel Cotto can back Floyd up, drive him into the corner, Manny will do so with ease.

And Pac will make him pay in there.
