Default Floyd Mayweather "Is technically flawed"

I personally believe that Floyd Mayweather is technically flawed. Thats why i get pissed off, when i see people saying...

"Oh i admire Floyd Mayweather, he can do things no other fighter has done before"

Tony Bellow said this on another thread.

I'm not going to be up Tony Bellow's ass, but comments like that. Make me think, he knows **** all about boxing.

Someone brought up in another thread: That Floyd Mayweather will dominate Sugar Shane Mosley, off his single performance against Mayorga.

Mayorga is a big and awkard fighter, who has two big wins over a very talanted and excellent boxer in Vernon Forrest...!

Sugar Shane Mosley was throwing bombs throughtout the fight against Mayorga, it was a scrappy fight.

It was not a boxing match, it was more like a brawl..!!!

And what happened in the end..? Shane Mosley got to em, and Shane Mosley...knocked him the **** out..!!!!

Look at Mayweathers last fight, JMM was a sitting ****ing duck...Floyd Mayweather had the mobility and speed/skill over JMM.

But still Floyd Mayweather did "NOT" put his punches together.

Whens the last time Floyd Mayweather threw a combination anyone...?

Against Ricky Hatton, it was all this single shot nonsense, and the odd 1, 2,3.

Floyd Mayweather is just not a natural fighter/fluid puncher in my opinion.

Mayweather will have to put his punches together against Shane Mosley.

Single Shots.......will only anger Shane Mosley.

Floyd Mayweather has never been a fluid puncher, but Shane Mosley has..!!!! when i say fluid puncher.........here's a example.

If Shane Mosley misses his first punch, he's not assed..! he's coming back with the right hand........if he misses the right hand, he will whack you to the body and then tie you up..!!!

When Floyd Mayweather misses one of his single "Pot Shots" he goes back into his defence and thinks about.....what he is going to do next.

"BOOM"

"There's the technical flaw", and thats the type of behaviour that will get him "Beat the **** up" against Sugar Shane Mosley.

I don't think Floyd Mayweather can fight for 180sec of each round.

No..

It would have been nice if you had highlighted at least one technical flaw. You didn't.

In my opinion he is technically one of the best fighters who ever lived. If I had to criticise an aspect of his technique it would be that on some shots he doesn't turn his wrist into them, but that is obviously down to fragile hands.

His shoulder roll is disgusting. His footwork is brilliant, his handspeed is insane. He can work inside and outside, he can pick counter shots on the backfoot as well as he can pick lead shots on the front foot.

He is a ****ing genius. I think he wins an easy UD against Mosley and I rate Mosley highly and would love him to win.
The major issue with PBF is that he is arrogant and complacent at times. He has often not got the fire to produce his best and seems to think he has some god given right to win.

In fact there are many reasons to think other fighters from the past or present would beat him. But the one area that I would dismiss from that is technique.

> He's not a fluid puncher

> When he misses is "single pit shot" he goes straight back into his defence and thinks about what he's going to do next.

> He never really follows up on his missed pot shots.

This kind of behaviour will get him beat up by Shane Mosley, Floyd Mayweather has to put his punches together.

If Manny Pac, did the same thing Floyd Mayweather does...he would of lost his last 80% of his fights.

Floyd Mayweather has to realise, single shots...are not going to do it for him against Sugar Shane Mosley.

"They will only anger him"

Yeah Flint or Primma i'm leaning towards Primma. Just the way things are put and the aggressive nature of some posts towards people.

I love all this though. These Allias and the randomness of the posters..wouldn't change it. Brit Forum has some nutcases but they do make me

Defensively, he's technically brilliant, and some of his offence is also technically astute. And you make him out to be totally dependent on pot shotting, when for the most part he's a counter puncher, who pot shots once every 2-3 rounds, when you least expect it.

No way. Flint can barely string a sentence together. This guy can actually spell too.
