(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?

All of the fights that Robert seemed to avoid/bypass at 140, are now catching up to him at 147 (Paulie, Maidana, Alexander, Bradley, Ortiz)...he should be happy with these bouts and pump his brakes.

I'm tired of hearing about his backstory and he still doesn't sell tickets, people seem to forget that. 24/7 isn't the end all, be all, and it isn't going to skyrocket every fighter's career. Hell, Pacquiao's boring as hell on 24/7, but he's known for putting on great fights, and that's why people watch him.

All of this jumping from A-Z in boxing, has got to stop soon. Guys think that they can have one good fight, and BOOM, they're entitled to a HUGE fight. What ever happened to cleaning out the division and being recognized as THE champ?

Robert's a decent fighter, but he still seems to be begging instead of taking on all comers. Khan has begged for a Floyd fight, but in the meantime, he's taken on all comers, even if it was a risk...I can never take that away from him.

One thing that sucks for Guerrero, is that he's still failed to produce any type of identity for himself in the sport of boxing. Golden Boy makes it seem as if they're trying to push for a Floyd fight, but they haven't put in half as much work for Robert as they did for Ortiz.

If Robert wants to make a statement, then he at least needs to fight Ortiz on the next Mayweather card...at least fight a guy that Floyd has already faced. I can't knock him for wanting a big payday, but don't get an invisible title (WBC "interim title), fight an unknown Aydin, batter and not put away a blind and inactive Berto, and suddenly get tunnel vision when it comes to everyone else in the division.

A Guerrero fight does nothing more for Floyd's career, other than make him seem that much more afraid of the competition at hand. I can't picture Floyd saying, "We chose Guerrero because he called us out. If he want it, he can get it". It looked bad when he "accepted Marquez's challenge" (who was a small guy), and it wouldn't look any better if he did the same for an unknown Guerrrero.

Agree with everything you said, but I'll just play devils advocate here, can't one argue that Guerreros done more to deserve a shot than Canelo? Who is rumored to be on a short list for Mayweather.
