Possible opponents from a more realistic chance of happening:

Kahn in England (Huge over there money-wise)

Danny Garcia: Won't be a total bust, but would save us from Devon Alexander (YUCK!) Danny's got a good strong Latin-America/Mexican following with this win over Matthyssee. It could do ok as a PPV, but would need to be lower-priced at say $50, no higher.

Triple G.

Martinez

Broner.

These could all still be mismatches, but they could be thrown out there.

As of today Garcia & Khan/Alexander winner are the most likely scenarios for May, but things could change with the next 7 months. I believe Martinez & GGG are with HBO so those are unlikely at this point. Martinez and GGG should fight eachother anyways as long as GGG beat Stevens. It doesn't appear that Mayweather and Broner have any intention of fighting eachother right now, but money talks. If Bradley beats Marquez I would love to see that 1 in May, but not sure if thats possible with Bradleys contract with Top Rank.

I'm hoping to see Mayweather vs Garcia get fixed soon. Its pretty clear Danny's corner is smart and reminiscent of Floyd's corner in terms of family.

Its a showdown I'd like to see and the kid's chin is now proven against Matthysse so thi would go all the way.

I'd love to see it. Khan? I wouldn't like to see it even if he beats Devon Alexander mainly cos it just means we're gonna see Khan get KOed by Mayweather.

OR (highly unlikely) it may prove something else and that would be that Mayweather's power is diminishing and maybe he doesn't hit as hard as Danny Garcia.

I still say Broner and him will never fight, I have doubts that he'll fight over in the UK because he went from saying it's a possibility to Mayweather promotions will be featuring Theopane over there

Garcia is the most logical choice out of all these you mentioned. He really proved his worth in that scrap against Matthyse, he's a worthy opponent for Mayweather right now


I don't see a fight with Golovkin ever happening but the best fight of all is he and Martinez. The only way to get to Floyd is to have some real experience, I said it in another thread last week that Canelo is not his toughest challenge in this 6 fight deal he has. A fighter like Martinez is because he knows all the tricks to the game, the same way Cotto did. Floyd got rocked by Shane, struggled in spots against Miguel. It's not really a coincidence, both fighters have been on the big stage and have the experience to match Mayweather

Maravilla is no different. His style does present issues for Mayweather, only question is what weight will they fight at?

The thing about Mayweather-Garcia is that I feel, even while coming off the most impressive victory of his career, Garcia has yet to prove himself against a legitimate welterweight. Plus, I don't see why GBP would want to jeprodize another up and comers undefeated record, especially if the fight would not be at it's full potential of sale. I say keep building him up without feeding him to Mayweather and quite possibly have interest in a future fight with Broner. I think the only possibilities at this point is:

Khan/Alexander winner (mainly hoping its Khan who gets the nod)

Sergio Martinez

Manny Pacquioa

Martinez will sprint to showtime, bad knee and all, for a mayweather fight lol.

Golovkin fight isn't happening

Marquez is a free bird so he could get a rematch if he is impressive

Bradley I'm pretty sure is almost done under top rank, but they couldn't draw flies to shit with that fight unless you got the undercard of all undercards

Still feel Garcia isn't ready, him and Alexander would be good to see how he does against a crafty, messy southpaw like devon who likes to dictate all the action and stop his opponents by clinching or staying out of range. Cause if you remember khan was lighting Danny up but khan has no chin, Alexander has a pretty sturdy one and doesn't mind boring the fuck out of people for the W

I can't see how anyone could have real interest in a Mayweather-Garcia fight. Garcia has no chance. He is smaller than Canelo, slower hand-speed, and not as much power. Danny is EASY work for Floyd and it would be more of the same.
