Default Who's got the Better Footwork Tim or Manny?

I've seen quite a few saying tim has better footwork than Manny so I tried to watch Tim's highlights on tubes. I was not really impressed by Tim's footwork.

Can anyone show me a highlight of Tim's footwwork? Btw, what is your take on this?

I'm not saying that Manny has excellent footwork btw. What Manny has is superior footspeed IMHO. But to say that Bradley has better footwork than Manny seems unproven.

Tim has yet to face elites of the elites and is really quite untested against the best out there. How is his footwork better?

Diffrent styles of fighter. Just beacuse he doesn't move and bounce around like manny do in and out doesn't automaticly mean that he has worse footowork.

Manny has more dynamic footwork then Bradley (or anyone else in the game for that matter). I havent really studied Bradleys footwork so I can't say how good it actually is. I don't think he'll be the guy using his feet the most in this fight anyway.

Pac has lost a step but he is still pretty impressive. At his best his footspeed was amazing. He doesn't have the ability to move as well laterally as he used to. His ability to create angles was crazy and to punch almost at the same time as he was jumping one direction or the other. That KO of Hatton was some serious Jedi type shit.

Both Manny and Tim have good offensive footwork. They like to come forward. It will be interesting to see who gets pushed back. I think once Tim tastes Manny's power he's going to have to fight on the back foot. I don't think he's used to that so that will probably be his downfall. Neither has good defensive footwork. When have you ever seen Manny or Tim slip punches going backwards ala Mayweather?? I haven't.

R u kidding? B'sides the fact that he has polished up his boxing skills since moving north of 130 pounds, his main weapon is footwork, a lil bit to the side, back and forth and with the stamina to go along with it... Manny of course. Tim's footwork, the guy moves just in one direction step by step, sometimes head b4 his feet or outa balance.

I wish this poll were public so I could see who votes for Bradley.

Bradley has the better footwork clearly.

Manny's foot work is horrible, he is just athletic enough to pull it off.

Hmm, what fight do you think Bradley displayed his footwork that is better than manny's sir?

Let us say compared to how Pac's footwork against Cotto/DLH perhaps?

Manny. Seriously? All bullshit aside here...if u think Tim's footwork even approaches mannys I'm doubting your knowledge of the sport and the fighters.
