Footwork is something that the 62-8 fighter has received flak for. However, for his next era in the ring, he hopes to improve that. One fan thus appreciated the efforts, writing, “Sharp footwork.”

Pacquiao’s skills continue to support him. These skills include the speed of his punches that once fazed the likes of Adrien Broner and Kieth Thurman. The fan wrote, “Speed is still insane, both hands and feet!”

If ‘Money’ agrees to the rematch that Pacman okayed, he should be worried after seeing this video. One fan, therefore, noted, “Floyd while watching this saying no rematch.”

Meanwhile, along with the fans, there were some critics too. One fan was not in approval of his defense skills. They remarked, “Weak defense, still.”

Among the few losses he’s had, the most prominent ones remain the Mayweather one and then the Yordenis Ugas loss, which was his last fight in 2021. One fan invoked the bitter moment in his career, by saying, “Pac got spoon fed after the ugas fight …Stay retired.”

The realization of Manny Pacquiao’s pursuit for the fights he has targeted this year is still uncertain. Nevertheless, in the event that these opportunities materialize, he stands ready, as evident in this video.
