Default Pacquiao is still one dimensional..

why does everyone refuse to believe he's not anymore? because he added a right hook and a few body punches into his arsenal?

don't get me wrong, that one dimension is very tough for the other 130 pounders to beat due to pac's intensity, speed, power and sheer aggression but him adding a right hook and a few bodypunches to his arsenal does NOT make him more versatile.

It'd be a whole different story if pac's inside game improved, he does not have much of an inside game. it'd also be different if he out boxed people

floyd mayweather and miguel cotto..now those guys can adapt, they can box you or brawl.

He is still one dimensional, but he has added tools and weapons to that one dimension. That makes him very dangerous despite his obvious flaws...

I don't think he's no longer one dimensional.

He still is and anyone who's going to mention the third Morales fight is showing some desperation. Pac's flaws wont become more evident until his reflexes slow down like Jones and then you might see him getting KTFO.

If that's how other people saw it . . . fine . . . I won't argue with it.

Problem is . . . great technically skilled fighters like Morales, Barrera or even Marquez wasn't able to solve the riddle of this one dimentional fighter . . . now how would you people explain that.

Cut the crap of Marquez schooling Pac because he only managed a draw despite the judge error in scoring.

well he beat Larios on the outside. Totally outboxed him.

Pacquiao is simpy underrated. Some people think that just because a fighter is consistantly exciting, he cannot be good.

please clarify. paquiao is 1 dimensional because he doens't have a good inside game? or is he 1 dimensional because he doesn't outbox other fighters?
