Imagine if the ghost comes out and tries to outbox Floyd, now that's be a shocker

It would be a big shock.. but I don't think it would be smart

If that list is correct, I'm not paying to see him to fight any of those guys. Maidana?? Really?? The same on who lost at 140 to Khan. the same one that Devon Alexander had his signature win against. I'd still pay $60 for a Pacquiao fight. I think Angulo beats him at 154. I know, I know Floyd is unbeatable... I'm not so convinced he fights those 154lb guys on the list. The article was right in referencing the HBO/Roy Jones debacle. If you let the fighter handpick his opponents, then it becomes a series of exhibitions and showcases. Floyd beats Garcia and Maidana because they are too small at this point. He beats Alexander because he's just not good enough. I dont think he ever fights Canelo or Angulo. He's not gonna fight a 154lb guy in their prime. Just face it...

Here is my problem with that article, what credibility does it have? I mean is this here say or has this been actually a done deal? I just think people like to discredit this deal and Floyd. I just feel we have to wait and see. We can't jump at every article and says this is gospel.

It's not just one source or one article, it's multiple sites and the biggest one is the Boston Herald, which is pretty reputable. True the list is a rumor but the source came from inside of Showtime. If the list is true, what happens if one of them loses, then he'd have to look elsewhere

Now whether it comes to fruition is another story but IF it's true then that is truly the definition of cherry picking. I like Floyd just as much as you do but c'mon bruh, even you need to man up and admit those are horrible fights. There is only 2 PPV worthy fights on there and that's Canelo and the one he got coming up.

Let's expand on this. What should the list include? Obviously we have:

1.) Guerrero, which is a go.
2.) Alverez (If he beats Trout) No Given.
3.) Trout-if he beats Alverez (I think Trout should be on the list if he wins.)
4.) Pacquiao-No longer Superfight status, but it's better than many others on "Floyd's List." Devon Alexander? That's like watching paint dry!

Ok Fighthypers, let's fill in the next three opponents to make the list fights that people would want to see. Let's make a good Six Fight Deal For Floyd that would not only represent Money, but quality opposition.

4. The winner of Alexander/Brook - IF Brook wins (we'll have UK twist to PPV), if not, then fuck it
5. Amir Khan - if he happens to fight Alexander or Ortiz in the future, if not, then fuck it
6. Josesito Lopez - if he gets past Maidana and has a meaningful fight by year's end, or early 2014 (no later than Jan.)...if not, then fuck it
*Lamont Peterson* - I have no explanation for this as of yet

This is all that can come up with. All of these fights are marketable, but again, none of them are definite at the moment.

I think Canelo give him probably the biggest threat of his career. I think Angulo, however, is a carbon copy of Magarito. I never thought Margacheato had a chance vs Floyd and I feel the same about Angulo. He's way to easy to hit. His hands aren't very fast and he's gone down before.

pacquiao has no business on that list. if he is on the list at all...it should be behind bradley and marquez.

i think trout is more worthy than alvarez at this point.

alexander shouldn't be on the list unless it's behind bradley. never seen brook fight. who has he beaten to make the list?

amir khan should be behind peterson and garcia.

you can make the case to put josesito before khan....i think peterson and garcia both go before him.

I've been talking about this to some of my friends and I told them that I think if he seriously chooses to fight 6 times then he should do 3 solid opponents and 3 tough opponents

I think he should fight Martinez, Canelo, the Brook-Alexander winner, he's fighting Guerrero obviously....Canelo, if he beats Trout, and maybe Garcia if he can keep winning. But between Canelo and Danny, I'd leave those 2 open. The 140lbers will be moving up soon and those could be good matchups down the line

If a Pacquiao fight materializes then I'd be interested in that, but at this point I'm more intrigued by the possibility of Mayweather-Bradley
