    Perhaps Manny's feet in fast exchanges isn't noticeable.
    Even bradley said, normally in combinations the first and last shot was the hardest but with Manny every shot is hard.
    The main reason for that is his coordination, we all notice his fast hands but before he can throw a fast and hard punch his feet needs to be properly set to generate the power. Which means his feet needs to be a little faster than his hands and that calves really helped him do that.
    Even algieri mentioned that during the fight you'll notice his body is in an awkward position where most boxers isn't capable of throwing a good punch but somehow Pacquiao's punch still has that power.
    That's because he planted his feet fast that his opponent couldn't even notice.
    About garcia being good at planting his feet and moving his body to generate that torque, Pacquiao has also shown that in every fight just a faster execution like how he knocked out hatton.

    I think it's a combination of several things including wrist, fist size and bone density. It's mainly a result of the hard jobs he's done since he was a kid and punching wood as a kid without gloves or any protection. These made his bones thicker and his fists resistant to pain and breakage.

    Read an article few years ago about Pacquiao's skeleton. His bones are fairly large, so even with a drained physique his bones are able to transfer more force to his arms.
    Typical of some races of people in Southeast Asia or pacific islands. Short, stocky, large wrists and head, almost comical in appearance but good for scrapping.

      Agree, Pacquaio shares the same genetics and phenotype as those people in the Philippines who can peel coconut with their teeth. He's from the same region of the juramentados, the moro swordsman, and the reason why the Americans invented the 1911 during the Filipino-American. Spain, Japan and US was not able to take a foothold on that region due to these amazing people with exceptional physique.

    Take note, Pacquiao was not in his prime now. But still, fists of the Legend feels like a rock. Imagine if he fought him in Manny's prime. That bruised face of him will be converted to cuts like what happened to Dela Hoya, Margarito, Marquez, Cotto, etc.
    But still, kudos to this man for being a true warrior. He's a heck of an entertaining fighter. πŸ’ͺ

    2:29 tellin you a story why, pacman in his youngest age got into a lot of trouble with his brother in the streets. Whenever he's brother got into a trouble, they call pacman to reinforce. And it became a habit for pacman to punch a banana tree trunk almost everyday to make his fist stronger and immune to pain. Plus, he does it in a regular basis especially after watching his idols such as Tyson, Mexican champ Chavez and of course, Bruce Lee.

    Pacquiao has calcified his fists like some martial artist who specialize on breaking hard objects. I am surprised more fighters are not doing it. Doing push-ups on your knuckles can start the process. The two biggest ones. You can also use a makiwata board.

    So far he's a good analyst but his arrogance that he showed for Pacquiao before didn't work that's why his career nowadays is emotionally affected.

  • TrapJeff

    In my opinion. The power of Pac comes from his legs. Among all the active boxers, Pacquiao has the biggest calves. Aside from that, he's living a healthy lifestyle to preserve the good condition of his body.

      @Spiritcr1jsher True.. As he did to De La Hoya sending him into permanent retirement. But notice that it was the accumulation of punches that always seemed to lead to a TKO. As he also did with Margarito.

    Thurman's legacy has been enhanced in defeat to Manny because he was humble afterwards and took his loss like a champion.Its how you come back that's important,not a loss against one of the best to ever do it.

    Unlike other, Thurman is strong πŸ’ͺmentally and physically .. He could really knock out Pacquiao playing dirty but Pacquiao is a generous kind man who came out of poverty and looks after the underprivileged people. Nobody would want to play dirty against a man like that.
    Thurman was simply playing games with Pacquiao in the early rounds.
    Unlike how does in every other fights, where he goes to destory his opponent,. He was not in the mood to do that with Pacquiao.

    Danny got longer reach, making the punch push further and feels heavier.
    Pac's shorter reach can't bury the weight much, unless he launches his body weight in front with his good foot work.

  • Destiny DILAINC

    Pac has one of the biggest wrist or if not biggest wrist for welterweights. His bones were denser that is why he was able to excel in 8 classes and carried his power.

    • MoneyBall

      My understanding is that punching power originates from the legs especially in a small fighter. Just look at Manny's legs and you can see. Also, Manny trains harder than any fighter these days with the exception of GGG who is also a big puncher.

  • mark markyyy
    mark markyyy Year ago +1

    I like both Manny and Keith but, it sure looked to me like Pac was really feeling those right hands to the head in the second half of the fight. Also Manny DID wear those sunglasses after the fight and his people were reported to have some concern of slurring or other effects while he was back in his room, to the point where they were looking at him the next day also for continued effects but he was reportedly back to his normal self at that point. Don't know if true or false, it's just what I heard.

    pac has abnormal bone density...he has a heavyweight type bone structure...pacquiao's wrists are eight inches, and he's 5-6. The Pac Man's wrists are higher than the average boxer in the heavyweight division. Mike Tyson and Joe Louis had the same size wrists as pacquiao. sugar Shane Mosley's trainer Nazeem Richardson once said, β€œThe best trick pacquiao has pulled is making you believe he is smaller than you are.” Mosley, who is 2 1/2 inches taller than pacquiao, has a wrist size of only 6 1/4....now you know why pac's punches are like a rock.....

  • How Depressing
    How Depressing Year ago +1

    Danny hits harder because he plants his feet and makes use of his longer reach, he throws more power by that. Manny doesn't hit as much to his full capacity because he moves a lot as a smaller fighter with shorter reach. Thats why you see manny hit bags harder than when hes on the ring, when hes on the bag, he doesn't have to "leap" or reach as much. Hence why hes got more power with his feet planted

  • vincent panoncial

    Here in the Philippines every boxing fan talks about it! Even wayback in Pacs early career. Its different at d same time wierd, most boxers are hard/heavy punchers but Mannys punch are painfull, it inflicts pain! maybe the way he delivers or snaps his punches☺

  • Paul Vicente V Curimao

    Many times supposed welterweights said that Manny is not a power puncher or one of the hardest punchers in welter weight. However, it seems 100% of them agrees that he hits hard, although not that hard. Unfortunately, what they usually do not highlight much is that Manny is super fast and hits or punches almost at every angle. What that means is, One will most likely get beaten without them knowing what happened.

    I think Thurman’s analysis is kinda biased. He could have beat pacquiao. He had the youth, the size and the strength advantage. But clearly underestimated pacquiao’s speed, punching power and footwork. Danny was a very formidable opponent and that fight could have gone both ways. But it was clear that Pacquiao gave Thurman a proper shellacking.

    Keith is saying that part of the reason manny hits hard is bc of the gloves …then says Danny hits harder…First off Reyes Gloves are common sense and know as a β€œPunchers Glove”.
    2. Danny also wore Reyes gloves when he fough Keith so then that same energy he put towards Manny would as well apply towards Danny. But regardless of gloves Power is Power Speed is power.

It's really gonna hurt when you find out your idol is a media creation. You also want to somehow punish Floyd because he never lost or gave away his god given talents.

    Pacman's punch not that harder but I believe it damages a lot inside the body. I always notice Pacman's opponents bleed.

    I believe it has to do with the hand wraps as well some trainers know how to double even triple stack and when u sweat it becomes like plaster over ur knuckles !

    The reason why Pacquiao doesn't hit as hard as he was in lower weight is two folds:
    1. Coming from flyweight to welterweight just means---he's fighting way bigger fighters ergo fighters with much better punch resistance.
    2. T-rex arms---Because of his shorter reach, he barely plants his feet when delivering blows anymore, he has to jump around in and out so that he could reach his opponent.
    *Watch him fight fighters with similar arm length like David Diaz, Ricky Hatton, Lucas Matthyse etc .. Where he could plant his feet more and you feel how heavy and powerful his punches are.

    Thurman specifies "Garcia isn't even a real welterweight," yet he doesn't say Pacquiao, who was reported at least twice to walk at 141lbs outside of training camp, isn't even a real welterweight?
    btw, x-vid.net/video/CDAQw2YLMA0/video.html proves Pacquiao doesn't load his gloves and he just has heavy hands. He told Nazim Richardson to watch him wrap his hands, then punched Nazim's hand without gloves on for Nazim to compare his power, and Nazim said if he hadn't seen Pac wrap his hand, he would've suspected Pac loaded something in it too.
    *BTW, GARCIA WORE REYES GLOVES WHILE FIGHTING YOU, THURMAN...* it's Pac, not the gloves, not the wraps...
    Thurman, stop spreading rumors already. Pac hurt you, end of story. Stop spreading these rumors about his suspicious heavy hands. why don't u talk about how a 141lbs guy can fight welters that come down from 170-180lbs? no amount of plaster can help any 140 pounder beat a welterweight, but pac does it clean. he just has awesome punching technique, power, and impact integrity.
    and gosh, if thurman doesn't know about this, somebody who can get to him tell him for gods sake. how do u interviewers not know this or never tell thurman (that interview has over 1 million views)??? Nazim literally said he would've suspected pac too if he didn't see pac wrap his hands, and tested pac's punch without gloves. thurman's gotta stop spreading rumors.

      Get off Pac's sack. The guy says another guy hits harder than the other guy. He fought both but believes one guy hits harder than the other. Now a guy writes an entire paragraph/book to discredit Thurman. Never fought Pac or Garcia, but knows how the punches feel. Too many fanboys!

    • Tla

      @rose black yep, he never made an actual claim that pac cheated, only hinted. in this clip, he is clearly trying to move away from his wraps controversy. now he's focused on "something" giving pac heavy hands, but not illegal.

    • rose black
      rose black Year ago

      @Tla ah i see what you're saying. he didn't outright claim pacquiao cheated but when given the opportunity, he didn't deny the possibility that he cheated either and then differed to atlas who has always accused pacquiao of taking PEDs. the better way to handle it would have been to say "while it is not my job to test for these things, i have no evidence/no reason to believe that pac uses PEDs. he beat me fair and square." or something like that

    • Tla
      Tla Year ago +4

      @rose black one of the times was something to do with teddy atlas i think. other ones were with youtube boxing channels. he said he had time to think about it and that's why he didn't mention the wraps right after the fight.
      the videos are hard to find cause the topic isn't in the titles. you'll come across them eventually if they're recommended.
      *found the article excerpt insinuating PED/wraps:*
      β€œListen, I did not regulate any form of testing in that fight,” Thurman exclusively told World Boxing News.
      β€œHe did do the majority of his training camp in the Philippines, and his hands felt like cement, so, Teddy, you tell me!
      β€œMy focus is on how to train and show up. Teddy sounds like he knows a few more things about the industry than I do.
      btw x-vid.net/video/gXJtIf7kw-E/video.html this is what thurman sounds like when he was giving credit in phase 1. it's completely different so it's clear as day. saying that he was being ambiguous doesn't help with the difference in his words. this clip is what giving credit looks like. the other ones in phase 2 and 3 sound completely different.

    Not the hardest pick he ever felt? But when was the last time you saw Thurman hit so hard he fell or doubled over and had to take his mouth piece out after a punch. During the Danny fight did Thurman do ANY of those things.

    Floyd said the same thing. Some fighters just got that thump in they fists. That wit Pac’s weird angles will feel like something crazy hit u. Floyd said it, Tim Bradley said it, everybody said it lmao. Thurman lost coz he thought Manny was too old. If he wouldve listened to Pac’s old opponents he wouldve been more careful in there but his ego got him beat. Pac put them paws on him & he couldnt believe how the power felt. By the time he got his confidence back it was too late. Pac was already way ahead in the cards & still got his second wind in him.

    Ugas should fight Ortiz. It will be the perfect test for Ortiz whose beating up decent but not top names.
    It would also show if Ortiz is ready for the champs - Personally feel like he gets punched to much and against someone like Crawford or Spence he would probably be dropped if not stopped. However, he's still has growing to do.
