Default What are some weaknesses of the Mayweather jr style?

As in his elevated shoulder and rolling punches. I don't mean Floyd in particular just the style. It's called the philly shell no? I'm new to boxing so I apologize for my ignorance lol

If floyd only used that defense that would be a weakness.

But its not the case.

You are open to getting hit by right hooks (or jabs) and straight left hands from a southpaw fighter because the angle is wrong. It is also why you would never see a southpaw use it because they would get killed against right handed fighters.

Floyd's style is more complex than that though, which is why he doesn't really fight like that against southpaws.

A really good jab would be a weakness. In Mayweather's case he would usually parry or throw a straight right hand before you get the chance to throw your jab effectively but w.e.

Weaknesses:

He potshots, giving the opportunity for his opponents to initiate attack. With that said, he's open to unconventional angles (Pacquiao), utilization of height/reach that can nullify his key defense (prime Margarito), pure relentlessness that could penetrate his turtle in a half-shell (prime Cotto, Margarito, and Pacquiao), and equal or better speed/conditioning (Pacquiao).

Strengths:

Ducks, dodges, and runs away from his weaknesses until they turn into strengths. With that said, he potshots, giving the opportunity for his opponents to initiate attack and hopefully slow themselves down so he can showcase himself (Judah). Playing mind games for months or years to mentally exhaust his opponent from unnecessary stress is also part of his arsenal.
