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 !

Guerrero is like every other fighter who wants a big payday. However, I have no idea why people are gassing up Robert Guerrero... Maybe because he's a southpaw that can hit hard? I mean that's what people expect when they give someone a chance to beat Floyd Mayweather. You know, a good puncher; puncher's chance. I'm gonna be quite honest, I don't see anyone right now beating Floyd Mayweather, not until age gives up on him.

This fight would be nothing like the Mayweather-Marquez. I don't even know where Allmenjoi gets that idea. It'd probably be most similar to the Mayweather-Corley fight. I doubt Guerrero would ever get this fight. I do want to see him fight other fighters like Marquez, Maidana, Matthysse, and Broner.

I think someone else mentioned Amir Khan... I don't care what Khan haters say, Khan will always give Mayweather a tough fight to me. The fighters that give Mayweather the most trouble are fighters with quick hands and/or fighters that ignore punishment. Khan has very quick hands, a jab, not just a jab, but a jab he actually uses. Whens the last time Floyd Mayweather fought a pure boxer? Genaro Hernandez? Maybe Zab Judah.
In Khan's last fight, the thing about Peterson is that he sold out his face to bring pressure and fight him on the inside, knowing he wouldn't outbox Khan. Khan was trying to stick to his plan to outbox Peterson, knowing Peterson was better on the inside. It was anyone's game and the best man won. Now the thing about Mayweather is that he's not going to sell his condition to try and pressure Khan like Peterson did, he will probably be forced to be the aggressor, but he still will try to box Khan, which Khan's reach and hand speed will give him lots of trouble. Mayweather will still win the fight, being the smarter and more skilled boxer. Khan's biggest issue is that he likes to start off explosive and gas himself out. I also don't think he has the power for any sort of puncher's chance. I can see Mayweather winning just about every round, but it won't be a walk in the park, maybe not till the late rounds.

Cshel86, I don't know if you're trying to use Corrales' weight just to suss Allmenjoi out or not, but I don't think weight had any issue for Corrales. He was simply too slow, flat-footed, with no jab, to stand any chance against Mayweather's pure boxing style. And the bolded part is just pure ownage (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
