he has amazingly quick feet and his footwork is miles better than it was when he first came onto the scene

but do not act like some of us do not know what we are talking about
Old trainers teach that, planting your feet before you throw, that's why most boxers are so predictable, Manny's feet is as fast as his fist. If you notice when he do his combinations, his body tends to bounce around his opponent, that's why in pictures it looks like his throwing while his feet is in the air, but in reality this are precise split-second foot movements that allows him to throw 5-6 fast combinations in different angles. If you look at how Leonard used to throw his lightning combinations, yes he did it very fast but always in the same directions and his feet is tacked to the ground, his feet is not giving enough leverage, it's Leonard's arms who is doing most of the job thus generating not enough pop to KO most of his opponents... Manny started doing this in the 2nd Morales fight but still in not too perfect form, Manny perfected this in the Dela Hoya fight, and hes doing it eversince...
