(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?

he packed the house in san jose and out in ontario. if the fight is in vegas...he has plenty of fans that will make the trip from the bay and socal. i actually think robert has more fans than ortiz who is a transplant while guerrero is a local boy.

The fight in Ontario was far from a sellout. Sure they called it that but it wasn't. I went a 2 weeks before to get tickets as the arena is 10 mins from my house. Upper deck prices were from $25 - $100. I was told that no tickets were available. So watching the fight on TV and at one point when showing the ring from a long view, I find that there is no one at all in the upper deck, not even stragglers. Needless to say I was pissed. The stadium only holds about 10,000 so they would be hard pressed to claim that there were more than 6000 people there. With GB's reputation, I'm sure 50% of the tickets were comps.

In So Cal, the ghost is just that, a ghost! They didn't even sell the fight as Guerro vs Berto. It was sold at the stadium as HBO Boxing! They didn't even have the pics of the fighters on the advertisements at the stadium when I was there 2 weeks before. Just a black poster with silver letter saying HBO Boxing and the date. No one will pay to see him fight Mayweather in Vegas. I would even bet on 1.0 mil PPV buys. I would go as far to say that they could still sell Floyd vs Berto and do better money wise than The Ghost!

well...i don't know for sure because i'm not part of gbp, the money team...or guerrero's camp...but i'm willing to bet guerrero is the front runner to be his next opponent.
