i actually think he would do it more against Floyd than PAC...most of the fighters that he's fought, have pretty much come to him and are textbook boxers...Pavlik, Dzinziruk, Willams...they were right in front of him and he can see where they were at all the times
it would be the same with Floyd...Floyd would sit in the pocket, in front of him
PAC on the other hand, with the angles he uses might make Sergio hesitate (for a few rounds at least) before he invited his attack by dropping his hands

sergio would drop manny like a bad habit
manny's natural fighting weight is probably between 135 and 140
sergio is a full fledged middleweight with punching power
he'll avoid him like the plague and for good reason
and i dont think floyd would throw more than 30 punches in any round if he fought sergio
he'll be better off keeping his hands low and saving the energy and hoping floyd ACTUALLY throws at him so he opens up

He drops his hand not only because it's part of his style, he does it to lure his opponent in. He becomes "open" so that his opponent can fire away and he counters with his deadly left/hook.
Mayweather is a counter puncher, he's not gonna be lured in with such an amateurish move. As you can see Martinez does pay for his troubles of putting his hands down, Dzinziruk and Williams both caught Martinez quite a lot before they were stopped.
Martinez will not be able to put his hands down against Floyd because of the fact that Martinez will actually have to be the aggressor in the fight, not the counterpuncher. If you go on a counterpunching war against Floyd, you'll probably just get countered to death and by the time you know it, you need a knock out to win. Martinez will have to use his size, power, and all the speed he has to pressure the smaller Floyd and be careful with the counters.
Pacquiao on the other hand, is the aggressor in his fights, so this will allow Martinez to be the counterpuncher and freely showboat, with only having to worry about Pacquiao's handspeed and footwork, since Pacquiao is no defensive wizard or master counterpuncher by any stretch. Pacquiao's power might be neutralized because of the weight difference on fight night combined with Martinez' ability to take a punch from heavier punchers. This is where Mayweather comes in, Mayweather's power has been gone for a long time now, but Mayweather doesn't win on power, he wins on skill/boxing ability/perfect defense.
So in conclusion:
Martinez can showboat and counterpunch a little against Pacquiao.
Martinez should be the aggressor and look for the fight against Floyd, don't do that hands low style thing unless he plans on attempting to lure Floyd which will never work.

Any man that can keep his hands low against the Punisher's 100+ punches a round,can keep his hands there against anyone around his weight class.
