Thank you for bringing him up. The smaller weight divisions aren't my focus, so I forgot about him. Seeing Mares performance in his most recent fight made me happy. That was some good swarming.

Yes, I can see why you would say Bradley swarms. He's versatile and can fight at a variety of ranges. His swarming alone doesn't stand out.

The swarmer tag is far too specialized to give it to Khan. He's a brawler or puncher with the handspeed and proportions to masquerade as a boxer-puncher.

pacquiao can barely fight inside, struggles to cut off the ring, and doesn't apply a steady pressure. Ambush fighters are too in and out.
