im not disrespecting pac...hes my favorite boxer right now...but watch some of his fights against morales and marquez...dude's footwork got him into trouble...
i loved him after the first morales fight purely for his hand speed and grit...i never in my wildest dreams thought hed be a world class boxer because of his shoddy footwork...
his footwork has improved since then, but its still not great...hes still a hand-speed/volume puncher fighter...
Diaz is a paper champ. wonder why pac didn't fought casamayor? DLH was shot and he quit on his stool but he said that he wasn't hurt. Hatton....well let's just say that he was hurt and almost KO by Collazo.

it's not pacquiao's fault he won.
they were never a threat
