Default Rate pacquiao's OUTSIDE Fighting Skills

We know his inside fighting ability is almost non-existent, but what about his outside fighting?

I don't think he's inside or out. He likes to stay at that perfect range to get full leverage on those straight lefts and right hooks. His height and short arms wouldn't allow him to fight on the outside very effectively so I'd say he's an inside fighter?

This has to be the most horrible era in boxing. One of it's top guys has no inside or outside game, yet he's at or near the top of the rankings. Midget with no skills.

Most of the time, "outside" mean at the maximum punching distance in the ring. Usually his opponents have longer arms them him, so he cannot do much of anything from the outside, much like most shorter men on the outside. If you're talking whenever he's out of range, then he's good at controlling the distance on the outside with his footwork and making taller opponents give up their height.

Pac fought sorta of an outside fight against Margarito and it was pretty damn good.

Outside is hard to define with Pac, because Pac fights at his best range. Pac is an offensive-minded fighter with shorter arms than most of his opponents. He doesn't have the physical traits stay on the outside and be 100% effective, but he always stays in range to attack.

After what happened on Saturday I'll say his outside fighting is worse than his inside.
