emmanuel didn't know how to put Mosley's back in a corner or against the rope. Floyd did it smoothly.

emmanuel doesn't how to play the clinch game.

Does emmauel have skills at controlling distance and setting things up with a jab? Yes. Is he a great inside fighter, jabber, or ring cutter? No. His current skill set was practical enough for him throughout his career, so that's what he trained in over time and never had the need to develop more skills. Now he's an old dog set in his ways.
this is the poitn I'm pretty much trying to make to him, but he doesn't get it

I wasnt arguing with your dumbass unless your rippers alt.

Polls are not scientific , its up to you if you wana take it as gospel

Dont know why you so angry and calling names, I wasnt trolling anyone, I was having a discussion with another poster and it was all pretty civil till you joined the fray

thats exactly what your doing callin people dumbasses becuse they disagree with you.

you think Pac is more versatile than Floyd go ahead. Think that up to you.

Why do you think he is? because he has won more rounds against opponents he was always favoured to easily beat?

thats the worst reasoning ever.

This thread is an example of Floyd's versatility
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Also a perfect example of it is shown in the Castillo fight. He boxed Castillo and used the ring in the first part of the fight. He even switched southpaw a few times. The fight got a little rough and it got dangerously close toward the end, so Floyd comes out in the 11th round and fight Castillo who weighed in as a welterweight, and fights him up close in the pocket.

That is versatility. I'm just asking for an example like this from Manny

is this their first fight because i had Castillo winning that by a round. probably not best example as i think Floyd had no choice but to go inside and rough him up in later rounds.

Wtf .. this is what you said (see above)

You example to prove your point was totally ridiculous as everyone knows Pac didnt line up bums to tally his wins, so why make that point?

I just paid in kind with this piece of "example extremism"

yeah I was speaking on the first one.

The Chavez fight is just like that also. Floyd came out boxing him, and then ended the fight beating Chavez up in the pocket

de la hoya. and not many more (hatton was 50 50 in uk for betting i know i clened up bettingon floyd, amir khan and John dudd all to win in same night(diff venues).

look i dont want to argue with you but you said winning more rounds shows he more versatile it doesnt.
it implies that his original tactics are working properly.

you havent been able to give me one example your pathetic.

so explain why you said the last qoute about 50 fights without losing a round, if pac didnt line up them bums then why would you bring that statement into the equation ?

We know pac didnt, so how would you assume my logic was as basic as your above qoute ..

Whos got the better resume in your eyes?

SERIOUSLY MAN IVE ALREADY SAID THAT WASNT ABOUT PACQUIAO!!! IVE HAD TO SAY THIS MULTIPLE TIMES TO YOU. WINNING MORE ROUNDS ON AVERAGE DOESNT MAKE YOU MORE VERSATILE. OK HAVE YOU GOT THIS.

MY EXAMPLE WAS IF I THATS ****ING RIGHT I WON FIFTY FIGHTS IN A ROW FIGHTING BUMS AND WINNING EVERY ROUND DOES THAT MAKE ME THE MOST VERSATILE FIGHTER EVER?

NO IT DOESNT.

WHY YOU UPSET THAT I THINK FLOYD IS MORE VERSATILE THAN PAC??

ITS NOT HATING I THINK mALIGNAGGI IS MORE VERSATILE THAN HATTON AND HATTON KNOCKED THE **** OUT OF HIM!!

YOU NOW FINALLY KNOW WHAT IM SAYING?

i think PAC has better resume over all. and i think he is less versatile.

this might be hard for you to understand but i think thats why pac is so popular hes not perfect, he fights hard and takes more risks.generally more exciting to watch(as long as opponent isnt overmatched)

he has fought better comp(getting worse under arum like floyd when he was promoting him)

if pac beat floyd, does pac more versatile than floyd?

versatility doesnt make sense in boxing. boxers/fighters go out there to beat their opponent whichever way they can either by taking advantage of their opponents weaknesses or by imposing their strengths to their advantage.

malignaggi is could be more versatile than pac, but that fag lost most of his big fights.
