Exactly. Fast feet that have no coordination will cause you to trip yourself up. Especially when he gets hit with precisely accurate and speedy left hook that he didn't see coming. Floyd will walk him down and pepper him with jabs and right hands. He'll use his footwork to create distance and hit Manny with counter shots when he comes leaping in. Floyd's got a 72" reach. Manny will get cuts that will gush blood. Marquez opened Manny up with a straight right hand. What do you people think Floyd's right hand will do. Bob Arum said something about Manny's right hand? I didn't even know he had one. Arum's afraid of what Floyd's right hand will do to Manny. Game on. Bring that little fellow to the MGM Grand on May 5.

Well Freddie Roach doesn't agree with you bc has stated that Manny needed better foot work before and everyone in boxing knows that Floyd has the better foot work. Benard Hopkins has better foot work than Manny and so does JMM.

Pacquiao crosses his feet and gets carried away with his wildness.

This joke was far too intelligent for most people in here.

If they fight the difference in the level of footwork will be apparent. PBF's footwork is one of his best assets against Pac. Who can't fight backing up nor can he handle movement nor cut the ring. PBF's footwork is the best in the sport today.

Is this a serious question? lol Floyd offensively or defensively

Floyd has 2 problems with footwork

1- His age (which hasnt really had an effect to this point)
2- His right hand lead has a tell, he leans his back foot forward before he pulls the trigger, but nobody he's fighting can see it because if they take their eyes off Floyd's upper body they will get rocked immediately.


Many has many foot related problems

1- He crosses his legs to much when chasing
2- He cant cutoff the ring effectivey vs defensive minded fighters
3- He backs up from punches instead of swing to the right or left (not ass much of a problem recently)
4- He is also getting older ie slower on his feet
5- His southpaw style makes footwork more important and harder on him than other fighters
6- Cant fight backing up
7- Overall lack of ring general ship

Mayweather has better footwork, which is why the fight is winnable for him. He has fast hands and great footwork. Manny has fast hands and good power and sharpness.

Manny gets off balance a lot and crosses his feet when throwing multiple shots and coming forward

Floyd is rarely off balance and doesnt make too many footwork mistakes

Was there a Gayweather fight that he has to cut off the ring against someone with the caliber of Mosley?????

Then we can compare how both cut off the ring.
