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 !

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.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

I was using Corrales's height (very tall for the lower weights) and "expected" weight gain to fill in that tall frame, to prove that it doesn't work for everybody...especially if its not done properly. I wasn't using it in comparison to his performance (or lack there of) against Floyd. I was actually giving her credit for saying that not everybody thats the same height, actually look the same and have the same mass and so forth. I just took it a step further by adding Corrales in there.

That's true, like when he fought Ortiz, that was probably the biggest he ever looked but only came in at 150. That's not the only times, they announced his weight for Judah and Baldomir at 147, and many more times at lower weight classes.

+1

Though I tend to disagree about him looking the biggest against Ortiz. I actaully felt that he looked his biggest/strongest against Mosley, but we dont have unofficial weights for that fight, so I can roll with your point about the Ortiz fight, since the weight actually announced.
