Hey, I am fairly new to this forum but I think this question needs to be asked.

Who is Robert Guerrero ? Have you ever heard of him ? What has he done in his career to even put his name in the same sentence as Floyd Mayweather's ? I said the same thing about about Amir Khan but it seems to be touching plenty of fighters. How can these people become relevant like that ? They just talk. Don't get me wrong, Guerrero - cool guy, great story but Mayweather ? Really ?

Saddest part is that people are actually thinking about him being a suitable opponent for Floyd.

So, can you please open my mind or at least explain to me, what makes Guerrero THE guy ? Thanks !

Its part of the game, thats how its done nowadays. It only took Ortiz one big win at WW, to land a Mayweather fight. Thats why I haven't completely counted Khan out of the race...if he wins his rematch with Peterson, then one big fight at WW, then he's pretty much in there. He looked bad last weekend, but hell, Ortiz quit in a fight at 140, and redeemed himself enough to land a big fight.

Again, its part of the game. Since you're such a big Floyd fan, Im sure that you didn't know how long long he was calling out Shane and Oscar. Hell, even he was a lightweight at the time, so yeah, he would've had to jump two weight classes to fight either two at 140. Wanna know why he felt he could land those fights?...one of the reasons is probably because Shane jumped two weight classes to fight Oscar. Since you dont pay attention to interviews or you either select the wrong versions of the fights on youtube, then you probably missed those times he called out Shane and Oscar at LW. Guerrero just doesn't have a big enough fan base to land this big fight, but he does have a vice, so he uses it to call Floyd out. Most of the bigger fighters now and in the past have done it.

Hell, if you have the top guy (FMJ) handpicking his opponents from 2 weight classes south of his, or relatively green fighters who have just crossed the sands into the limelight, then what makes Guerrero think that he doesn't have a chance?

Actually I do recall him calling out Shane and De La Hoya in interviews and after fights. The problem with these guys are now, they beat one fighter in their division and bam they want to move up. Instead of developing their skills they rush. Like Vargas and other fighters who peaked way too early.
