I would rate Pac's footwork slightly above average at best.
Fast feet is a component of footwork, Pacquiao has more then just 'fast feet' , he has the most dynamic footwork in the game. He has some technical flaws like cutting off the ring, but his ability to bounce / move with his punches and create angles, is incredible. I've never seen anybody who can move around the ring like him.

^ That has nothing to do with 'speed', that is pure footwork. You don't understand what your looking at. If you think it's just speed, get in the ring and try it out for yourself.

im surprised no one thought outside the box.

would YOU cut off the ring against Mosley if he could possibly KD you with one punch?

when Pac came to America, ALL his wins ended inside 12 for 6 years.

when he moved up people were saying those guys would decapitate pac with one punch. I'd be cautious too.

What's obvious is you know very little about boxing if you think Pac's footwork is just 'footspeed.'

^ Ok well what I'm sayin is what your seein in that gif has little do with footspeed, its footwork. Anything you do with your feet in the ring is footwork, you can call it bad or good footwork, but its footwork. Try it out yourself. Try moving / bouncing off your punches the way pacquiao does, pivoting to the side, spinning an opponent 180 degrees while maintaing your balance and punching at the same time. If it's just 'footspeed' and bad footwork, it shouldn't be hard to do it.

The dude has horrible habits which make his footwork fall apart at certain points. But overall he has good feet which with more knowledge/ higher natural IQ, could have been great.
The moments when he has control of a fight, he looks good.

It depends. If he's fighting a guy moving latteraly a lot, and keeping him off balance, it can get sloppy - otherwise, he place's his feet pretty well and moves very fluidly.

Some of these guys know a bit about the sport.

I'm not going to suggest they would be quite at the top level of insight and knowledge, not having had quite the same advantages of being 'insiders' like the Flomos.

Still, I think they might know a thing or two.

Add Larry Holmes to the list.


“Pacquiao did all he can. He did all I would have done. I think Mayweather just got a little too scared if you ask me. If he thinks Pacquiao is taking drugs so what, he should just say: ‘You take it, you kill yourself that isn't going to help you, because with my talent and ability I believe I can still beat you.' But he was scared to take that challenge. If they never fight it won’t be Pacquiao's fault. Every time they came round to fighting Mayweather put his excuses in,”

Larry Holmes


That makes


Duran
Holyfield
Hopkins
Delahoya
Hagler
Roy Jones Junior
Tim Bradley.
Demarcus Corley
Sugar Shane Mosley.


and now...

Larry Holmes



Let the denial continue ...



Floyd fears Pac.

Is there anyone in the history of boxing who avoided one boxer like a plague like Floyd, Jr?

I can't remember one.

His excuses are boundless. The drugs, no urge to fight, retirement, vacation, the cleaning of the sports, bigger purse, his health, his love for his kids, I don't know what else.

We all know he is scared of both losing his 0 and being physically beaten as well. That's very clear, but it is annoying to see him talk like he really wants a fight with Pacquaio when his actions show otherwise.

The pictures of Hatton helplessly lying in the floor, almost dead, of a bloodied Cotto, a pulverized Margarito with one closed eye, and a scared-for-his-life Mosley linger above Floyd's thoughts whenever the topic is Manny.
