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

^Agreed.

I think one aspect of Guererro to his advantage is his ability to pull the trigger. In the Berto fight, and I realize Berto ain't mayweather, Gurerro didn't let Berto dictate the pace or get comfortable in his stance. He let his punches go and didn't freeze up often. Mayweather likes to be positioned just right; Berto seemed to be trying to emulate that - Guererro could make his fight against Mayweather an ugly one, one he isn't shut out in, if he lets his hands go while Mayweather postures.

Even on Guererro's best day I think he gets outclassed in this match - but I don't think hes gonna get knocked out and that gives him 12 rds to land something and capitalize on it.

Remember that The Ghost is not gonna have a native California ref or a guy like Russell Mora in there to allow him to be dirty by holding and hitting and working inside. They will have a fair ref, but its not gonna be like Lou Moret did in the Berto fight where he allowed Robert to do anything he wanted, and even borderline to illegal low blows.

Fighting dirty may be Robert's only chance to make this competitive. If the Ghost is in Floyd's face and throwing balls to the wall and bombing. Floyd has not had to deal with that since the first Castillo fight. It's almost like Floyd would have to go to California or get Mora as a ref to get that kind of situation where they will let Robert do what he wants.

You know, Guerrero's fight with Floyd could be like Hatton's fight with Floyd. The potential for the opponent to do more, but Cortez did not let Hatton fight inside against Floyd. I was even getting pissed at Hatton's holding in that fight. A Nevada ref won't let Robert hold and fight inside, so this is a swell up and bust up fight with Floyd winning comfortably after about the 4th round.

I will pick Floyd by TKO in the 12th (on cuts.)

1. I thought he dealt with it well in the fight with Jesus Chavez and Hatton

2. Hatton was doing more mauling than boxing, he was just wrestling/i wouldn't call that crap fighting.

Guerrero will need more than an inside game to beat Floyd, he will need to be able to be faster than Mayweather. That is the key to beating Floyd
