Let's talk boxing. What do you guys think?
Single punch speed, Floyd. Combination punching speed belongs to Pac.
Mayweather wasn't a big combo guy (he was a sharpshooter, but in his earlier days he liked a two punch combination), while that was an important part of Pac's game.
I am not understanding the poll results at all. This is like "who had more punching power," it's not that close. Floyd had faster hands, Pac had more power.
Thats why he didnt want to fight Pac in 2010/2011. Its easier to time him when he slowed down. He saw what that speed did to Oscar, Hatton and Cotto and thought hell no!
And before the usual *****'s come in talking about testing. If Floyd Mayweather wanted that fight it would have happened.
Truth is those fast in and out combo's were yo big of a risk for his zero marketing so he kept putting up obstacles to duck the fight.
Only when he got ko'd by Marguez and slowed down the hungry lion found his heart.
You realize the fight only got made when Floyd looked horrible against Maidana twice.
Pacquiao had faster hands than Mayweather, that's why he was able to throw faster combinations. Pac could pull his punch back far faster than Floyd could, he could throw another punch while Floyd was still recovering from his previous thrown punch.
For single punches Floyd is faster, but slower than Pac in combinations? That doesn't make sense.
I think Pacquiao is slightly faster with hands and feet but Mayweather has better timing.
Pac had faster hands
Floyd is taller and longer and has better timing so his delivery system gets his punches to opponent faster.
No chance. Both belong to Mayweather.
Mayweather’s prime was the Gatti fight. Pacquiao’s hands have never been as quick as that at any weight
Mayweathers hands were faster. Throwing more punches isn't faster it's frequency
At what weight was Pacquaio's prime? 122, 126, 130, or 135 and above?
Timing beats speed, precision beats power
I can't stand mcgregor but that quote was bang on
Maybe, but Pacquiao's particular style and his left-handed guard would surely have given Mayweather a lot of trouble.
