Mayweather vs Pacquiao Secret Weapons: Floyd's Body Punches

New, 11 comments

Bad Left Hook's Connor Ruebusch analyzes the body attack of Floyd Mayweather, who will certainly look to hammer Manny Pacquiao's guts come May 2nd.

Just one week till Mayweather vs Pacquiao, and so much more technique to cover. In our last episode of Secret Weapons, we looked at the underrated defense of Manny Pacquiao. Opponents have more trouble hitting Pacquiao's head than you might expect--but one reliable way around the high guard and tricky head movement is a sustained body assault. Floyd Mayweather is a prolific body puncher, and there's no doubt he will look to use all of the tricks in his ken to wear Pacquiao down come May 2nd.
