CompuBox Reviews Floyd Mayweather's Punch Stats

Money Defense over the Years

In his seven fights at 147-plus lbs., Mayweather's getting hit with 46% fewer punches than he was hit with in his nine of his fights at 130 lbs. (’98-’01).  Only delaHoya (10 landed per round) landed in double digits per round among those seven opponents. The CompuBox avg. is 17 landed per round. 

The secret to Money's improved D: Maybe it's the 20% fewer punches per round  he's throwing at 147-plus.  Less punches thrown = less opportunities for opponents to counter. (He avg'd 50 thrown per round at 130 lbs and 40 per round at 147-plus).  Mayweather has limited an opponent to an avg. of just six connects per round on three different occasions (Corrales, Hatton and Marquez.).  The most avg. punches landed per round vs. Mayweather: 17, by Jose Luis Castillo, in their first fight.  It's the only fight in which Mayweather has been outlanded (203-157).  Castillo landed 46% of his power shots.  Castillo landed just 24% of his power shots in the rematch. 

 Money’s Toughest Fight?  Mayweather said earlier this week that Emanuel Augustus was his hardest fight.  Certainly not defensively, as Augustus landed just 21% of his punches (12 of 58).  Floyd must have meant  offensively-Augustus made him work.  Money landed a career high 32 punches per round, throwing a career high 74 per round (43%) before the fight was stopped early in round nine.  Floyd's second highest avg.total punches thrown per round: 60, in his KO win over Angel Manfredy (at 130 lbs.)  He landed 28 per round.  Floyd landed a career high 59% of his total punches in his lopsided win over JM Marquez.
