I don;t think anyone is necessarily pointing to the time frame other than you moreso than the level of opponent he was facing
since the JMM fight in March of 2008 (less than 5 years ago BTW) he has fought
David Diaz- plodding slow of foot and stationary
DLH- had nothing and basically sat there
Hatton- two rounds so really cannot gauge
Cotto- slow footed but has good footwork per se. Still largely in front of Manny
Clottey- stationary and didn't punch
Margarito- slow plodding
so how can we really gauge how much his footwork has improved when he hasn't really had to use it?
