Pac doesn't get to be where he's at w/ just average foot work.

Just because you have fast feet doesn't mean you possess great "footwork". You actually have to move intelligently. I don't really think Pac does. He doesn't cut the ring off and basically chases people around the goddamn ring.

Now does that sound smart?

Are we all taking a timeout to catch dripping sweat from Pacquiao's genitals?

I would rate Pac's footwork slightly above average at best.

It's his foot work that creates openings.

Not just his blazing handspeed.

Manny's footwork (skill) is only decent. His foot "speed" is outstanding
That's why he's off balance so much.

Where in the hell did I say Pac had terrific foot work??? I say it's better than average. Big difference.

People here make it seem like side stepping out of your opponent's reach after throwing an already awkward punch is pretty simple.
They thought this is easy to do..

I don't know why most Floyd fans likes to underestimate Manny's footwork. He has better footwork movements than Floyd and he seems much lighter on his feet as well. That dude is still the most explosive boxer in boxing today. I don't even think the guys at the smaller weight divisions can match his explosiveness.

It takes someone with ATG footwork to prove that PAC's footwork is not as much ATG as his other skills.
For a typical potato couch Mammy's footwork should look amazing, if you guys are soooo big experts
then go over there and capitalize with his mistakes by yourself.

On a 1-10 scale I give it a 6 1/2 or 7 and that vid Is bull... @lord jomski a smarter fighter or younger marquez would've countered with the left hand almost immediately
