yet people argue that Bradley is a accurate puncher, and Rios is a big guy and neither landed such an amount. I remember people making the argument that Maidana landed a surprising amount on Mayweather due to looping shots and what not, and thats effectively what both Rios and Bradley was doing, and if the shots were straight or conventional or whatever it'd be "cool". Clearly his below average defence hasn't cost him heavily, well when he applies it rather than running in gunning it, then again I suppose that could be an aspect to defence
Pacquiao has noticeable wear and tear going on. His decline is not just due to age, the guy has been in too many wars. It's common sense that the less you get hit the longer you last in the sport. His below avg defense has cost him a lot.Rios didn't land that much but Bradley gave Pacquiao two tough fights so he obviously did something right. In the 2nd fight all he did was go for the KO and he hurt the guy. Offensively Pacquiao is nice with the hands but defensively he's terrible.
