(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?

Mayweather-Guerrero:


-Interesting 24/7 as aforementioned they talk shit about each other. Guerrero's the christian family man/woman respecting guy. Mayweather fresh out, money team, addressing 50 cent soap opera, Ray J playing his piano again, riding rolls royces with Rick Ross.

-Guerrero could be marketable but he needs 1 more fight on the card of perhaps Garcia-Judah in february to strengthen his fan base against Floyd. Alexander, Maidana(Ghost would out box him), Mallinagi(Won't happen. Malinaggi-Cano 2), Bradley (FUCK no-Top Prank), Josesito Lopez (Wouldn't get credit. Josesito a 140er just got MASSACRED by a 154er), Ortiz(GREAT FIGHT. Ortiz always will bring it). I see him Generating 1.2 Million for Floyd.

- Guerrero NEEDs to fight his next fight in february because Mayweather will only fight in May/September. It takes 6 months to build a PPV fight. He was able to do 4 months w/Cotto because Cotto's the 3rd biggest draw in the sport after Pac. Not the same with Guerrero however as it wasn't with Ortiz.

-Definitely possible being that Schafer said he spoken to Floyd and they have something in the works. Mayweather NEEDs a tuneup with his layoff at his age. For Floyd to gun straight for Canelo would be unwise. He needs to get back into fighting shape mentally and physically and Roger said that Floyd hasn't even been in the gym training since coming home.

-Another easy $40M for floyd. 1.2 M PPV's. I'd be included in the 1.2 M.

-If Mayweather fights Ghost Canelo will DEF happen in September 2013 because Cotto will be available post his december fight for a unification bout (Trout will give him solid work though). Cotto-Canelo/Mayweather Guerrero may be on the same card if Floyd decides to fight Ghost. Ironic that Mayweather would be the main event if it were to happen this way being that Canelo-Cotto is the better/bigger fight.

-Floyd will get so much backlash for fighting Guerro.

- Guerrero has fought better opposition than Canelo, that doesnt mean he is deserving of a Mayweather bout. Canelo is a bigger draw still.

-If the fight happens Ghost will not fight on the inside like he did against Berto. Official wont allow it. Mayweather wont allow it. Pot-Shot all day. Straight right hand down the pipe.

-Dont compare the Ghost's inside fight game to WarCotto's. Cotto has way more boxing skills, better footwork, better angles, better defense, better jab, and he's more pwerful.

-IF the fight does happen, with Guerrero's chin, i don't see him getting knocked out, BUT if he allows himself to take shots from Floyd the same way he did against Berto.... then i hope it was worth the money....

-If Floyd fight's Ghost in Feb, then Canelo in Sep 2013. He will hang the gloves for good after getting that WBC 154 title.

$40M for Floyd and 1.2M buys for Mayweather/Guerrero? Really? It's hard to crack 1M PPVs...hell, it's hard to crack 700k if you're not careful.

Cotto/Canelo and Mayweather/Guerrero will NOT be on the same card...they'd make more money with those cards being separate. If Floyd/Guerrero is the main event, then we'd probably see Canelo vs Molina, Bundrage, or Angulo...and me thinks that GBP will do that Canelo/Angulo on a B.A.D. card.

Mayweather's had a pattern of fighting in May and Sept, but he can pretty much fight on any month of the year. He fights on these Mexican holidays, but his opponent isn't always Mexican, so that should tell you something.

Me thinks that if Kell Brook comes to the U.S. on Jan. 19th, embarrasses and beats Alexander, and has another fight in the UK (dragging Paulie over there and beating him or fighting Khan) before the summer, then we could see a potential opponent for Floyd by the end of the year. There's no telling who Floyd will fight in May...hell, he may just take a Brook fight in May...who knows.

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.
