and I further denounced his claim because pacquaio was rawer more undisciplined in those earlier fights and had less than good footwork. He has developed it into what it is now and the fighter he is today.
so why does it matter again?
all that shows is that there is an inconsistency in what Manny does with his feet
sometimes he is correct in foot placement sometimes he is not
I wouldn't say he is bad in his footwork but he is not the best in the game right now and certainly not the best all time
right now I think both Hopkins and JMM have better footwork than Manny. There placement is always impeccable and rarely are they ever caught out of position. Hopkins footwork against Pascal was remarkable and showed you don't need to be fleet of foot to have great footwork. I think that is something you are confusing
