He keeps guys at bay with his kicks, you said nobody is scared of his kicks but he constantly keeps guys backing away from them, except Diaz who kept walking into them because he doesn't give a shyt but he paid the price because his legs got destroyed by Conor.
It took me a lot of watching around and talking to boxers/martial artists to get some ideas on how he could even pull this off. Straight up, it's not easy to predict. My short version; fight long and try to get Floyd to do the leaping hook he likes to throw so that Conor can time a straight left (ie: Zab Judah vs Floyd first five rounds)...Left straight feint to a lead uppercut between Floyd's shell (not the most reliable method I admit but Conor's lead uppercut is slick)...Hard pivots out of corner situations to try and catch an awkward angle punch while Mayweather sits on counters (this is me trying to find something Floyd hasn't seen from typical boxers).
