Is he like a "game manager" those guys that take no risk and play it safe to secure a victory? Almost like a Lebron James or Alex Smith, they get their stats all pretty and chill to victory. They don't seem to want to take that gamble or risk to securely win and dominate.
I believe he's a fight manager. He manages a fight just enough to win. He can't and won't knockout a guy because of this mentality.
Ali, Tyson and Pacman are great fighters because they will flat out try to knock the guy out.

Don't get me wrong. He's a good fighter but doesn't deserve to be ranked that high or get the praises that he's getting. He's like Trent Dilfer, play it safe, and let the defense win you the championship. Just manages his fight very well. Calm and calculated.
If he was to fight in a street fight and not knowing the unknown, he would get hurt.
Where guys like Tyson, Ali and Roy Jones would seriously hurt a guy.
45-0 with 26 knockouts. Young Floyd was more offensive than he is now and would go for the kill when he had you hurt. Now he moved up in weight classes, got older and fights guys bigger than him in most of his recent fights. He is more experienced and defensive minded now.
Also you shouldnt even be mentionning Pacquiao with Floyd. He lost his last 2 fights and got brutally knocked out by Marquez in his last one. Id like to see Pacquiao at 36 years old fight a 23 year old undefeated champion who outweighs him by 15lbs on fight night. He would get murdered
