Any thoughts? The question is what 147 or 140 fighter will Saul fight?

I hope they do lace up against each other this year. I'm not as high on Canelo as most people seem to be and it's not just due to the opposition he's faced. His defense is mediocre and that's putting it nicely, he's not this power puncher fans and others make him out to be, he's just heavy handed

The only issue I can see Floyd having in a Canelo bout is the size of Canelo. Canelo is a young bull and he'd be we'll served to try to bully Mayweather against the ropes and land those body shots. Ultimately I see Mayweather beating him in a competitive fight. Mayweather's boxing IQ and his defense will carry him thru this fight. Canelo is too easy to hit and those shots are coming from 140 and 147lbers. Imagine what Floyd or even a legitimate Jr. Middleweight would do to him.

Fightnews has reported that Canelo's opponent is likely going to be Trout but Cotto is still in the mix to land the fight. Why Miguel's name is still being considered is beyond my comprehension outside of him being a name fighter.

My guess is Canelo fights the Ishe Smith vs K9 winner. I would be pleasantly surprized if GBP picked Trout with Floyd kn the horizon. El Perro is another possibility too.

I can't believe Guerrero is actually being mentioned as the possible opponent for Floyd. It will be a good year for boxing if Canelo and Floyd meet...not sure if Alvarez is ready though.

I remember Floyd saying he would never give his fans a crap fight like Guerrero and he didn't even know who the guy was so hopefully he keeps that in mind when he announces his opponent. Then again who would you like to see Floyd face? Guerrero is his mandatory but I am sure there are better fights out there.

Alvarez is young and a good looking guy, I am not gay by any means but looking at it from the stand point of a female he isn't ugly I get that and think that is what Golden Boy is banking on. A young heavy handed boxer that can knock someone out (light welter weight and a welter weight) with one punch. His opponents rival that of Chavez Jr. bums and tomato cans or over the hill fighters. If Red finally faces someone in his weight class will he fold or prove to the world that he should be in the ring with Mayweather and other top champions.

Last night Austin Trout on Friday Night Fights called out Simply Red so we will see if he accepts a real challenge. My guess he will fight the winner of Judah and Garcia.

I think Floyd has more trouble with "The Ghost" than with "Cinnamon Head."

Not sold on Alverez at all. But he would be a bigger draw than Guerrero, Floyd would make more money fighting Alverez than facing "The Ghost."

Guerrero will make the fight really ugly. I'm guessing it will be a mix of Mayweather vs. Hatton and Guerrero vs. Berto or something similar. Lot's of illegal punches, low blows, holding and punching....I am still waiting for Floyd to say something about the matter...

Why do you think Floyd will have more trouble with Guerrero? I think he fights like Castillo, ugly and dirty but he gets the job down.

I agree with you about Saul.

I don't think Alverez is all that good. I think Geurrero does fight like Castillo and has the potential to be Floyd's toughest foe since Castillo I. Forget the second fight, neither did shit, and I scored it a draw, although I was very pissed and wanted Floyd to lose, because I think Jose was robbed in the first fight, and my hatred of Floyd as a person was pretty intense. It HAS mellowed somewhat. LOL! I like Guerreo's aggression and balls to the wall approach. The layoff will tell us a lot. Maybe, just maybe Floyd doesn't have the great slickness and agility that he used to have, and if Floyd's reflexes are not so good, in addition to THE POTENTIAL for Guerrero to be in the pocket and agressive. A type of opponent who Floyd has not seen in a long time, could Robert pull off the upset?

Let's not forget that Floyd is not getting any younger! I wonder what the odds will be for Guerrero to win? I mean this is totally due to age in inactivity for Floyd, who would sweep the floor with Guerrero just a few years ago. Robert will fight to the end and is a good mandatory. Alverez is the bigger name, but even an inactive Floyd stops him on cuts in about 10 rounds.

Bigger Money-Floyd vs. Alverez

Riskier Fight with a potential shock-Floyd-Guerrero
