He just posted it on his Facebook page saying him fighting Roberto is just a rumor....thank god, I have been waiting for some words from him for the longest! I am never paying any attention to who is he going to fight unless he himself announces it.

However I believe we will know the name soon as January closes down and if he is to fight on May 4th, his training camp and promotion should commence at the end of February or maybe even sooner. I think I'll be as surprised as when he announced hes fighting Ortiz. Didn't see that one coming!

Can you think of any other unlikely names that could end up in the mix?

Really is a horrible list of potential opponents but Guerrero would probably be the best fight, unfortunately. Dirtiest fight would be a tie between Guerrero and Bradley. He'd school Marquez again and I see a boring UD for Floyd in a Trout fight. Sucks but Guerrero will probably get the fight.

Didn't he look Ben straight in the face and say that he wasn't fighting Victor Ortiz?

We all know how that turned out...

floyd is running out of options. i don't believe he can beat trout. canelo isn't going to be an easy fight. guerrero was his best option. i think bradley is probably the most deserving though. anything other than the names i just mentioned really don't interest me. i'll focus on the up and comers and spare myself the let down if he fights someone else.

Trout
Bradley
Malinaggi
Alexander

Guerrero/Canelo are the most exciting fights for floyd but he's done nothing impressive at 147. As an interim with only 2 fights in the weight class youd expect him to keep on fighting and calling EVERYone in the division out instead of waiting for the cash cow. Why not fight Maidana? Why not call out Marquez? Cano? Malinaggi? Lopez/Ortiz now that they are ready to go? Why not move down to 140? He beat an inactive Berto and only one top 10 mandatory challenger. Not to mention he skipped the entire 140 pound division. Even though Bradley/Alexander arent exciting fighters their resume's are far more impressive. Trout's win against Cotto is greater than all of Guerrero's wins combined. He doesnt merit a Floyd fight more than Alexander/Trout/Bradley/Malinaggi.

My only Question is if Floyd fights Canelo in May who will he fight 9/14........ will we see Mayweather Martinez in September? O.O

If he beats Martinez, convincingly, he will be the best hands down of this generation.

And I think you hit it on the head with guerrero. He beat two very beatable guys in a dirty fashion and still had trouble.

Mayweather Martinez is the ONLY fight that makes sense legacy wise especially if its at 160(Not a chance in hell). Mayweather/Torut is high risk low reward. And the rest are just money makers and belts ready to collect dust at the big boy mansion.

Well Bradley is out of the equation.

I doubt its Canelo.
It can only be Guerreo. Floyd is BSing us lol

What if floyd fight Trout and Canelo fights the winner of Smith/Bundrage? Then Floyd and Canelo meet in september to settle the score considering everything goes smoothly?
