    This. Against Corrales Floyd didn’t use the shoulder roll because a taller fighter can just punch over the shoulder.

    Also, when using the shoulder roll you create a gap in your defense when you attack, which a person with good timing and handspeed can exploit. Mosley was able to do this with Floyd and rocked him twice, which forced Floyd to change tactics.

    Attacking the body with jabs is also a great way to get the person using the shoulder roll to start getting lazy with dropping their shoulder under their chin, which leaves an opening for sneaking in a right hand.
