right, but the boxing style = outside fighter

boxing, the name of the game, also pugilism, is simply a fight with fists only

Whitaker didn't run, and did engage though. He'd also be the best fighter in the world, bar none IMO.

Floyd doesn't run either, yet some people say that he does. Ring generalship=running smh. Too many people don't appreciate what boxing really is.

But a lot of people think Floyd and Sweet Pea fought similarly. Outside of both being supreme defensive fighters, they don't fight similarly at all to me.

Personally I think Whitaker is five times more exciting than Floyd.

Pernell Whitaker is one of the finest defensive fighters to ever live. I simply love watching his fights even now; the skill that he displayed was truly a thing of absolute beauty. I remember Larry Merchant saying once, "With hand speed like that, you’d think he should be catching birds." I loved that line.

I see Mayweather beating Pernell however, as skilled as he was, Mayweather represents I think another level of skill and technique. I do see him beating Manny however, Pernell's defenses were too ironclad, his poise and presence of mind made him a threat to anyone they put in front of him. I remember that clinic he put on against Julio Cesar Chavez. I see him doing something similar to Manny, but the blatant robbery that took place in the fight with Julio left a very bitter taste in my mouth for years. I've never seen anyone so thoroughly outclassed receive a gift decision like that. Last Saturday came close, but that night against Chavez broke my spirit a little.

It was really sad watching Pernell’s decline, to see him get hit more and until the day came he bore no complexion of his old self.
