Floyd playing coy with whatever he's not quite as good at as he used to be. But he says it ain't his legs, "If I have to move on a guy, of course, thatís what Iím going to do. Of course, Iím not in the sport to take no abuse."

Not sure why the best boxing writers are Mayweather buttboys, but that seems to be the case.

Thanks for the link. This is in no way meant to be disrespectful and while I wouldn't use the phrase "butt boys," but maybe it's because they understand the sweet science and all of the nuances that can be involved. Damn, I love boxing!

Based on what Floyd said, I think he has lost a step or 2 (due to age), but I don't know what it is. At this point, it's not obvious. Although the aforementioned may be true, I honestly believe it's Floyd's ring intelligence that carries him so far, not just his boxin' skills alone.

he clearly isn't as fast as he used to be, but he is more precise, so the small difference in speed is probably neutralized. He says he won't be moving against Ortiz but I don't quite buy it. Ortiz isn't just gonna be standing there gesticulating like Mosley.

His speed deteriorated? If so, is it defensively, offensively, or both? I've never noticed, but maybe I wasn't observin' well enough. Nice observation, though. I'll be checkin' on September 17th.

The minute he puts too much thought into what he's doing or what's going on...we will be blessed with front row seats to the "Safe Unanimous Decision" that Mayweather shoots for regardless (IMG:style_emoticons/default/no2.gif)
