Ahh i didn't think it would be true but now Mayweather does have interest in this fight. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

I can easily see it happening. Robert Guerrero is in contact with schaefer (however you spell it) and golden boy. Mayweather (as most boxers) fight under the same promotions, unless the names are a draw themselves. So the deal contract deal is already done, Guerrero gets another big win under his belt then he is more of a commodity with the promotion. Mayweathers come back fight, against "up and coming lion" (dont be surprised to hear that on the 24/7) could become marketable.

Because this is one of Mayweather's many "Comeback" fights, i see robert guerrero being more of a tuneup for Mayweather than a real threat. lol easy paycheck.



the thing i like about this fight is that guerrero is a bit faster than cotto and ortiz and he has some zing on his shots. he also mixes up his punches well. while he does have defensive holes...his offense will give him a shot at winning. don't expect him to fight floyd the way he did berto or aydin. while i don't think his skill is on the same level as cotto's...i do believe he has enough in his arsenal to make it interesting and possibly score an upset. he'll go balls to the wall and isn't scared to mix it up or get in the trenches and get rough. look for a fight where mayweather will definitely get bloodied up and have to dig deep to win much the same way he had to do against cotto. i wouldn't be shocked if guerrero drops floyd at some point. this fight is more difficult than a pacquiao fight. i know i'm going to catch heat for this post... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) i just call it how i see it.

I can agree with you to some degree. i think the layoffs and age, at some point have to start taking their toll on Mayweather. I think Cotto is one fight away from being sent out to pasture... Especially at 154, he's a midget at that weight. Cotto gave Floyd his toughest fight in years. the way trout beats Cotto will make people realize how close to done Cotto is.

Not saying he should get it, but yes I do think he deserves a shot. In his first two fights at Welterweight, he's already defeated decent competition and has earned the Interim WBC Welterweight title. I've pastly stated that Guerrero wasn't shit, I was exaggerating, I don't think he'll be at the top, but I think with his tools he has the potential to give any fighter a tough fight. Anyone that thinks FMJ will walk through him is just spewing nonsense.

I also think Guerrero can put some decent revenue. He's a "nobody" but he definitely has the charisma, more than people like Ortiz and Bradley.

and he pretty much ignores them when they do. something tells me he's going to hear guerrero's call out. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

guerrero isn't as crafty or skilled as miguel...but he's a bit quicker on the trigger and may land an embarrassing shot or two on floyd. i get the feeling guerrero won't be looking to survive against mayweather...he'll go balls to the wall. he definitely has more skill and ability than ortiz. fresher and younger than shane. between mayweathers inactivity...and his difficulty with southpaws...i can see guerrero having his moments.

I hate it that people keep saying this. What difficulty? Give details. His way of fighting southpaws is like no other fighter. It just takes longer, but in technical aspects it's solid.

People say that (southpaw thing)because Judah made him very uncomfortable in the early rounds of their fight. I think Arum was spewing that shit for a while too, "explaining" why Floyd was scared of pac.

i think cotto gave floyd the toughest fight in his career period. trout brings nothing to the table that cotto hasn't seen or dealt with. he hasn't really taken any beatings since the pac fight...i think he should beat trout.

difficulty is probably too strong a word...but southpaws definitely make him uncomfortable and have landed good shots on him. *see demarcus corley, zab judah and ortiz before the headbutt.* guerrero will definitely slide a few shots in on floyd and he will bang that fragile rib cage.

it wasn't just zab. it was the spadafora sparring...his pops making the same admission and stating that floyd should avoid southpaws at all costs...corley...and even ortiz.

he packed the house in san jose and out in ontario. if the fight is in vegas...he has plenty of fans that will make the trip from the bay and socal. i actually think robert has more fans than ortiz who is a transplant while guerrero is a local boy.
