Default Do you think we will see a new generation of boxers imitating the shoulder roll?

At my gym yesterday I couldn't help but notice the amount of young (and some older) fighters using the shoulder roll defense. Do you think Floyd's style will influence a new generation of fighters?

peekaboo is only ideal for certain types of fighters with certain physiques. same for the shoulder roll and everything else. you have to tailor your defensive posture to what best suits you.

Obviously.....

The question is do you think we will see a lot more boxers influenced by Mayweather's style.

yeah you will much like we saw a bunch of Roy Jones imitators

however like Jones style Floyd's is one that takes skill and practice. It's based on having great reflexes and most fighters simply do not have that
