(Admin note: Thanks for poll! The multiple answer option was selected which would have enabled uses to vote both YES and NO. Which wouldn't make sense for this excellent question. Intent I am sure was to select one response, that Guerrero has done enough OR needs to beat a top five welterweight. The poll answering has been changed to allow only one response.)

For almost all poll questions, where you want only one response to show, don't check the Multiple-Choice check box.)



Personally I don't want to see this matchup. However I think if you add Guerreros story plus Floyd's mouth it equals a million PPVs. I think Guerrero could be marketable. As I said before he has a great story, plus he's Mexican American, he speaks perfect English, and is a handsome dude, no homo. You could stick him on ESPN with Skip and Steven A., ala Manny and JMM, and make his story national. I think Floyd would have to play the angry black man but it could work. Your thoughts?

I mean he did 1.4 Million with Ortiz. Only a hundred thousand short of what he did with Cotto. Who would've thought that ortiz wouldve broken a record with floyd at one point? If Guerrero gets a solid WW as his next opponent like Alexander theres no telling how much it will sky rocket his drawing potential.

His opponent isn't always mexican... but he always fights on mexican holidays?... LOL thats something in of it self. Perhaps the mexican holidays are the ones in which he Draws the most PPV money. The most recent fight that wasn't on a mexican holiday was the Hatton fight. And that has not generated more PPV buys then all the fights after it that have been on mexican holidays regardless of the opponent.

I dont see Kell Brook putting a clinic on Alexander. Would probably be a snoozer.
I DOUBT HIGHLY that Mayweather even knows who Kell Brook is. If he is to fight he's gunning for the Money, hence the name. Guerrero has the potential to generate that for Floyd if he's matched right and promoted right in his next fight.

Nope...he did 1.25M with Ortiz, so no records were broken there. If anything, the Ortiz fight did 100-200k more than the Marquez fight, which I believe was right at 1M or 1.1M buys. Even if Guerrero fights and beats another top WW, then fights Floyd, those number will probably be stable..somewhere around 1M...maybe.

Yeah the Hatton fight was "strike while the iron is hot" fight...let's not forget that Floyd had JUST fought Oscar months before that. The Mexican holiday picked up from there. Again, at this point of his career, he can fight any month of the year and do decent numbers...couldn't have said that before the Oscar fight.

Mayweather knows who Kell Brook is, he knows who all of these fighters are...regardless of what he wants people to believe. If you're a guy that sits back and waits to strike while the iron is hot, then I'm sure he's been hearing Brook's name.

All of that "Who is that guy, I don't even know who he is", is a stunt, Floyd knows who these guys are. I stopped believing everything Floyd says, years ago. And yes, I believe Brook has a strong chance to upset Alexander, who has yet to add a new wrinkle to his game...he's just comfortable at his current weight.

Quick question, how good was Ricky Hatton's resume before he fought Floyd? Not really much to brag about...but he DID have a HUGE fan base, which equals ticket sales and views. If Brook comes over here and embarrasses Alexander (who Floyd possibly has his eye on), then whose to say that he wont fight Brook???

Guerrero slowed down his own train with that injury before the Maidana fight, so he has to play catch-up. Beating Berto puts his name out there a bit, but that cow has been milked by Ortiz already, because he was the first to beat him. Guerrero's potential to generate money is very slim...he can hardly sell tickets in his own town, and that's a bad way to start negotiations. WE know who Guerrero is, but has he made a huge statement with casual fans???

Mayweather dominated Cotto with a messed up hand, a cold, and fighting at welterweight...odds are if the fight does happen, it may be an easier win than the Cotto fight.

Mayweather had a great fight with Cotto, but Cotto won more than 2 rounds in that fight. That was NOT an easy fight for Floyd, sorry, but you guys put waaay too much mustard on Floyd's fights, and tend to believe everything that he says. He was knocked down a peg or two in that fight, believe it or not. When was Floyd a WW in that fight? Im just curious.
