Default Re: Floyd Mayweather "Is technically flawed"

This 'single shot' criticism is such a load of tripe. It's overlooked that he can three single shots in very quick succession so it's almost a staggered combo to all intents and purposes.

Throwing conventional combinations is just not his thing and the single shots are very effective whilst being complimentary to his defence cause he can duck and remove himself from the line of fire after every one. If he was throwing 2's and 3's he would leave himself more open to getting countered, possibly.

based on what? His pitiful resume? His lacklustre performances?

Skills are admirable, but he's barely tested himself since losing to Castillo the first time round.

what's the problem with taking rounds to adjust to an opponent. Some fighter DONT adjust at all during a fight, so the fact it only takes him 4 rounds sometimes is testement to his boxing brain and ability.
Nothing wrong with needing the time to adjust, but against a hard-punching, fast-starting opponent (Mosley/Pacquaio) that could be costly. He's generally gotten away with it because of his defence. But he didn't look so good against Judah for four rounds.

agree with that. But i wouldn't call what he does, "getting away" with it. he is good at certain things that enable him to win fights. Just because he doesn't do other like be a more offensive fighter does not make him technically flawed

Tony Bellow has stated that he has seen

His words...

What excalty does he mean by this..? Has he not seen Sugar Ray Leonard, Sugar Ray Robinson, Roy Jones Junior, Pernell Whitaker.....and so on.

Floyd has the following flaws:

- struggles with the jab or any left handed punch
- struggles with anyone throwing combinations at him
- low output
- takes up to four rounds to adjust sometimes
- struggles when an opponent is quick

He's one of the best technical fighters out there, also a fighter who turns his hand over properly when throwing punches as well.

Not a fluid puncher? take a look at when he fought at 130 and put combinations together. As he's gone up in weight he feels that he's more effective pot shotting, and who's to argue? Nobodys proved otherwise as of yet.
He's never been a fluid puncher, ive seen all his fights.

Its all stop, start...stop start....misses a pot shot, he will go straight back into his defence.....i don't know weather its a mental thing, or just lack of ability.

If he was a "Natural Fluid puncher" he would of stopped JMM via TKO.

Watching Floyd Mayweather is like watching a NFL game.

This type of behaviour that he has shown, over the past half a decade.

Is gonna get him beat up against Shane Mosley.

got carried away with the bell end statement, but i still can't agree. mayweather is skillfull in what he does, you can't deny this. It may well be that manny could catch him out, but he hasn't faced anyone who has been able to do it yet

Floyd's a very talented fighter, particularly in his defensive style. He turns every punch over, he's incredibly accurate, and his decision making and punch selection are only equalled by Pacquaio right now. He's very rarely out of position, his balance is impeccable. In short, he's amongst the absolute best fighters in the world right now.

But let's be clear, he has flaws which, through canny matchmaking, haven't been exposed to a great degree. Against Castillo there's clear evidence that he doesn't handle volume-punching well - he didn't really adapt well that night. It was a long time ago though, so let's give him a pass on that.

Against Judah he was constantly getting hit with the left lead every time Judah committed to it. Floyd came on so strong because Judah gassed and was unable to mount combination punching. Floyd's body work early on played a part in that.

Against Oscar he never found an answer for the jab. He never really adjusted, except for some excellent counter-punching off the ropes, and he was lucky that Oscar gassed, as he always did in his big fights. Even then, one judge scored it for Oscar.

These are flaws and they are caused by technical failing Floyd has. As with any fighter though, those flaws are out-weighed by Floyd's marked strengths, which is why he's a great fighter (but not an all time great).
