What Arum says is just old stuff. The fact is comparing Cotto's left to Pac's left is stupid & makes no sense. One is a jab and the other is the guys power hand. There lefts arent even on the same side.

I say what Arum says is old stuff is because it did use to be somewhat true but just like anything else, with more experince you figure out more & more things. When Floyd started he had some trouble but he fought more of them.

His shoulder roll didnt use to work as well so thats why people said that but then Floyd stopped using the shoulder roll against them and had alot less problems. Now he's gotten so comfortable against them that he actually brought the shoulder roll back out against Ortiz and was blocking punches in that stance.

Obviously Southpaw will always be rouger for him than a righty. Its like that for everyone but its not a problem like it was when he was younger and he fights them 10x better than anyone else in boxing. He's very comfortable against that stance now. Its not perfect and will never be but its as good as it can be
and this is the truth for almost every single fighter in the world. but the way its magnified with floyd is ludicrous.

It's easy to see southpaws would give Mayweather more trouble. But the degree of trouble has to be seen. Especially with Pac's lateral movement to square up Mayweather easier.

This is so dumb on so many levels. Can one of you name a southpaw who beat Floyd? Now name one who you believe can beat Floyd .

[QUOTE=Mana$$aMauler;12149920]Let's break it down...

Floyd fought true southpaws in only 16% of his fights. That's NOT A LOT.
He has faced 7 southpaws in his entire career

the first 3 don't count because, they were canon fodder early in Floyds career...

The latter 4?

Chop chop Corley - gave Floyd trouble-wide ud-floyd never fell.BUT chop chop did

Sharmba Mitchell - way past his prime when facing Floyd-ko

Zab Judah - gave Floyd trouble-wide ud

Victor Ortiz - gave Floyd trouble-ko

Bottomline - Floyd may have won against the few southpaws he's faced, but [B][U]Floyd has trouble with southpaws.[/boy stop.............

All conventional fighters have problems with southpaws, just like all SP's have problems with str8 rights coming from an ortho stance. This isn't news.

Ortiz clearly dominating floyd in the fourth round before the head butt.

Anyway, arum makes a lot of sense. I think it's what Floyd senior is scared about. Floyd having to fight a southpaw and is also heavy handed as well as speed = the end of his unbroken record.. Not that I don't agree Castillo won the first fight with Floyd. Castillo clearly won that, Hands down..

floyd is the most well rounded fighter in boxing bar none, he adapts better to his oponents than anyone in the sport. u telling me he cant deal with a lefty? please..

floyd prefers to fight right handers, but so does 99,9% of the fighters out there other southpaws included. you see more right handers so you are more used to fighting them, you have to adapt when you fight a lefty. but like mentioned nobody today adapts better than floyd.

floyd doesnt really have a style, hes got styles. plural, plenty of em. he will apply whichever one he has to in order to come out on top. a lefty is no issue at all.
