Floyd moved around quite a bit in his younger days. He definitely used his legs much more then, particularly in the early rounds. He doesn't do that anymore.

He moved a bit, but he was never a real runner. He still moves a bit but is even more efficient with it.

I would never classify him as a mover, although there are a couple fights were he did use movement as his main strategy.

Which is why I don't find him that much different.

Oh no, I'd never say he was a runner. He was never that. But he did move quite a bit more, particularly in the first half of the fight. It almost seemed like a strategy as he would then sit down on his punchers during the second half of the fight. He did that well against Corrales, Hernandez, and Castillo to name a few. But a mover? Nah. I agree--he always had many styles.

I think the Corrales fight is probably the most I've seen him move.

But then in the Jesus Chavez fight he barely moved at all.

Obviously Corrales is a lot bigger and better than Chavez but still, there were even times he stood in the pocket back then.

He gets murked by Martinez.

I'm not saying that Floyd wasnt great but he is declining fast.
Only floyd fan boys will argue other wise.
So I'll ask u this? Why has floyd changed his style the last 3 fights?
You could've argued your point, and probably gotten some positive points...until your ulterior motive was revealed with the fan boy comment. You clowns just can't keep it real. Declining fast? When did this start? Who keeps their 21 year old legs into their mid 30's. I just hate phony posters. I expect critics, but I can't deal with phony posters. Floyd never changed his style.
