I'm very much into the styles and techniques of boxers from all around the world. Many boxers adopt very similar styles, although one remains unique (almost).
My question is this: Why don't more boxers, perhaps young boxers, use Mayweather's style and technique? I understand that it is very hard - not only to teach but to perform, however this should not discourage others from at least trying it?
He is undoubtedly one of the best boxers there has ever been, so why not try to imitate (at least to a degree)? I also understand that boxing is a very individual sport, and the fighter should always do what suits them. However, if you look at many other sports from golf to soccer to basketball, many athletes performing at the very elite level use similar styles.
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
