(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?

Not yet,

Robert needs one more fight with a top Welterweight before Floyd Mayweather. Tim Bradley would be good. However, unless Floyd has aged a lot, I still think he wins by preventing Guerrero from getting inside. The Mayweather camp will get someone like Jay Nady who won't let "The Ghost" pressure Floyd. And Nady won't let Guerrero get away with holding and hitting.

Floyd busts up Guerrero and stops him on cuts. Robert could make it "interesting early" but he would have to get and stay in the pocket to do that and a Nevada ref won't let him do that for extended periods of time. A middle of the ring, pot-shotting Mayweather busts up "The Ghost" on cuts.

If the fight is competitive, it's because of Floyd's age and inactivity in terms of, have Floyd's legs given out, and the fact that he is getting old.

Jack

Idk about the thing with refs. I mean they let cotto fight on the inside, but maybe the name (popularity) would make a difference in your points favor. I don't think guerrero could beat him either way. Good story, easily marketed, but I still don't think he deserves a shot. He fought a berto who has looked like shit 3 out of his last four fights got caught on roids and was out for about a year because of an injury as well..

A fight with Alexander, Bradley, brook, or maidana would be good.. I see a lot of work he can put in before actually deserving a shot
