Pacman is still greater by a good distance.

He was talking about Manny against Floyd..

One poster thinks Manny Pacquioa's footwork is just average..

What does ESB thinks about Manny's footwork? I'd like to hear it again.. This thread will not include a poll so basically you all stand up for what is your judgement on Pac's footwork..

As a start.. If I'll score it from a scale of 1-10, I say its 8.. How about ESB?

It ain't perfect (since he's poor at cutting the ring) but it's definitely top class.

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

For the people who think Manny's footwork is his stablemate Khan's footwork and balance is REALLY horrible and they both get trained by Freddie...

Old habits die hard i guess...

But his previous opponents were dedicated on the "run away" fight-plan..

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.

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.
