Yeah, and when he fought skilled guys, he got ****en busted up. He got busted up by guys 'past it' at that. And he got busted up a lil bit by a guy who threw 6 punches the whole fight. Again, where was the versatility against JMM and Morales?

You will see that much of his punching is actually counter punching. But unlike Floyd and other "slick" boxers he counters in bunches and then presses the advantage. What most of the posers mistake for offense is actually counter punching followed by offense.
Pacquiao busted Margarito up, Shane knocked him the **** out. Who beat who up worse. You have no point

PAC is definitley a more versatile offensive force than Floyd where Floyd defensively has more depth.

I think most see Floyd as more versatile based on what the mass perception is of him and his style.

There's not question Floyd is versatile and based on his ability to adapt and conform to each of his opponents the polls are the way they are.

I will say this....Floyd's DEFENSIVE versatility is more dynamic than PAC's offensive versatility.....meaning he has more avenues defensively than PAC when it comes to his offense.

But both men are very versatile fighters who use their best qualities to dominate the sport. I just see these two men as very different fighters with very different qualities.....it makes it more difficult to have this kind of debate having such different fighters.

But the masses have spoke with regards to the poll....it's clear the majority feel Floyd is more versatile as I expected. I just have a different perspective.

Versatility is fighting multiple ways. There is no more versatility offensively and more versatility defensively when judging a fighters versatility

Flat out lie. Look at their recent compubox stats. Manny consistently lands his power shots at a higher connect %.

Lance beat me too it. Now please tell us who Floyd has knocked down. Little reminder Hatton and Mitchell weren't real welter weights.

I would call versatility a macro concept. What approach are you using to win the fight. The only time Floyd was forced to change approaches he got ****ing dropped by Judah.

Cotto better go fight a real threat after he gets his vengeance on antonio. Cotto, being a "top guy", shouldn't have fought an over the hill Mayorga.

Is Cotto still a welterweight? Get Floyd's black wiener out of your tight pinoy bunghole.

You think that Floyd's counter punching is pretty and slick. I dont give a shit that don't mean shit. Manny's is more effective and it is clearly more effective even to the dumbest of posers that is all that matters.
Floyd's opponents get afraid to throw also.
Manny busts up his opponents more because he has more power and punches more, not because he's a better counter puncher. Come on man
