Defense is The Key

Manny has a tremendous offense filled with speed and power. Mayweather has a great offense as well based on speed, accuracy and perfect timing. The difference in these two boxers is defense. Manny has a descent defense but Floyd has one of the top defensive skill sets in boxing history. Manny can score a knockout or build up points with constant pressure but if he does not land then he is not showing effective aggression. Defense wins out in most sports if it is a phenomenal defense. That goes for boxing as well as sports such as Soccer, basketball and American football.
