But the money wasn't enough to make the fight. Fact.

#4 He can leave himself open and simple beat fighters to the punch as he did with Cotto.

#5 And quite often he can put up his high guard and rope a dope to let his opponent tire.

This is true versatility. What Floyd does isn't versatility. Floyd sits in the pocket and potshots. Thats it. He doesn't have close to as many arrows in the quiver as flomos think. Let him try and pressure a fresh welter he will get dropped AGIAN. He is not that good of a pressure fighter.

When he first tried to walk down a not yet totally gassed Zab he got dropped.

Floyd is very tricky he pretends to be versatile. When he knows that he has the fight won he will show off, like putting up his high guard and walking Mosley down. But he seldom does such things till the fight is won. And all the Flomos go 'wow did you see how versatile he was he went to his high guard and walked Mosely down, lookout Pac.'

PBF is more versatile. Anyone who answers anything but PBF doesn't know boxing has no credibility can't be taken seriously for debate and should be put on your ignore list.

Come on lets be honest Mannys great assets are:

1) power
2) speed
3) ability to take a punch

Floyd = Versatility personified!

emmanuel has the "best offense" but can't even fight on the inside. Why is it that guys who specialize in defense like Bernard, Andre Ward, and Floyd Jr able to work inside yet the "best offense" is incapable of it?

Pacquiao's one of my favourite fighters ever, but its quite obviously Floyd.
