Any thoughts? The question is what 147 or 140 fighter will Saul fight?

I think Floyd has more trouble with "The Ghost" than with "Cinnamon Head."

Not sold on Alverez at all. But he would be a bigger draw than Guerrero, Floyd would make more money fighting Alverez than facing "The Ghost."

Why do you think Floyd will have more trouble with Guerrero? I think he fights like Castillo, ugly and dirty but he gets the job down.

I agree with you about Saul.

I don't think Alverez is all that good. I think Geurrero does fight like Castillo and has the potential to be Floyd's toughest foe since Castillo I. Forget the second fight, neither did shit, and I scored it a draw, although I was very pissed and wanted Floyd to lose, because I think Jose was robbed in the first fight, and my hatred of Floyd as a person was pretty intense. It HAS mellowed somewhat. LOL! I like Guerreo's aggression and balls to the wall approach. The layoff will tell us a lot. Maybe, just maybe Floyd doesn't have the great slickness and agility that he used to have, and if Floyd's reflexes are not so good, in addition to THE POTENTIAL for Guerrero to be in the pocket and agressive. A type of opponent who Floyd has not seen in a long time, could Robert pull off the upset?

Let's not forget that Floyd is not getting any younger! I wonder what the odds will be for Guerrero to win? I mean this is totally due to age in inactivity for Floyd, who would sweep the floor with Guerrero just a few years ago. Robert will fight to the end and is a good mandatory. Alverez is the bigger name, but even an inactive Floyd stops him on cuts in about 10 rounds.

Bigger Money-Floyd vs. Alverez

Riskier Fight with a potential shock-Floyd-Guerrero

Jack I have to disagree about the Castillo fight especially the first one. I think Castillo was aggressive but he was getting hit all night. It was a dirty and gritty fight and the best man won. The second fight was a no contest win to Floyd. I saw the Castillo fight as a neutral fan. I wasn't completely sold om Floyd at the time and I really did love Castillo's heart. Floyd vs. Guerrero in my opinion will look a lot like his fight with Baldomire (remember that guy). Floyd is going to fight from the distance and around Guerrero his foot work and cutting the ring off is going to give the Ghost issues. Floyd will pot shot him all night. Guerrero will be forced to constantly come forward only making the beating worse. Cotto was bigger than Floyd so he could push him around and Cotto is more skilled than Guerrero. Alvarez is only interesting because of the hype. If he fights El Perro and not Austin Trout than Saul should be stripped of his "title" and he will be on my permanent shit list.

Great Post Jack!
