though I know he lost the fight and that he didn't want to engage Johnson, he was doing some nice defensive moves in there thanks to his solid footwork

I know footwork is supposed to set up the offense and that it is not the case with Pastrano here, but it is still interesting to watch him escape Johnson's offense

when we're talking about footwork in here, the same names always come up, I was trying to find something different, yet relevant

but of course I'm an ignorant next to the boxing history legends and (self-proclaimed) authorities
He didn't stay out of harms way in the 13th when he rocked him.

He was forced onto the ropes quite often despite running every single round throwing almost nothing in any of them.

"Constantly on the move" is a good way to put it, and a literal way to put it. Having an "effective jab" is a terrible way to put it, as his jab was not effective at all despite it being pretty much the only punch he threw for most of the fight.

He did manage to evade Johnson's offence at times, by running. But he also got hit, alot. From range, up close, against the ropes, to the body and head.
