He just posted it on his Facebook page saying him fighting Roberto is just a rumor....thank god, I have been waiting for some words from him for the longest! I am never paying any attention to who is he going to fight unless he himself announces it.

However I believe we will know the name soon as January closes down and if he is to fight on May 4th, his training camp and promotion should commence at the end of February or maybe even sooner. I think I'll be as surprised as when he announced hes fighting Ortiz. Didn't see that one coming!

Can you think of any other unlikely names that could end up in the mix?

Corrales was 5'10 1/2 but his reach was 70" thats crazy. You're right, no ones ever had Floyds reach. No wonder why that straight right is so effective...

I totally agree. But that fight isn't worth it. High risk, low reward. He gains nothing from facing Trout unless trout faces Canelo prior. I'd love to see it and see how Floyd adjusts but I dont think that fight will do much for his legacy. Floyd will have to neutralize Trouts reach and with his current style idk if he can do that. Floyd will have to wait for trout to counter him. He will have to go back to the style he used against Marquez. Trout reminded me of Ward a little against Cotto.

Bradley, Canelo, and Martinez are the fights he should take in that order. With Bradley he can unify 147, become Ring Champion, and claim I beat the guy that "beat" pacquiao. Bradley also has an impressive Resume on paper even though on TV they are boring. Hopefully they're no headbutts... Canelo would do great with Floyd in PPV and he could also unify 154 to become ring champ. The risk of losing to Canelo is lower than the risk of losing to Trout. And if Floyd moves up to 160 to fight Serg?! SMH win or lose... all hail Mayweather because he came from 130. It would also be interesting because Serg said he wants 3 more fights then he'll retire, Floyd said the same. So as long as they remain undefeated top level competitors, if these two could have their going away parties in the ring in 2014 that would be one for the books...

I believe he gains a bit more from beating Trout, then Cotto would've gotten for Trout. Had Cotto handled his business with Trout (which was a tall order), then we could omit the Mayweather talk. BUT, since Trout beat Cotto (a fighter with a name) and put the world on notice, then a Trout victory for Floyd (or any other fighter), would be worth a nod.

Trout has a way of making a fight boring, and the only way Floyd beats him easily, would be to circle and box (which was his boring style), so the fight would be a flop, unless Floyd takes a risk and exchange. I just dont see Floyd beating Sergio at 160, but Im sure that people would be delighted for Sergio to drop down to 54, regardless of the health risk. That sounds bad on my part, but the boxing world works in odd ways. Lol

I like this idea, Cshel, of a Mayweather-Brook fight, should Brook come through those hurdles unscathed. Also, I'm a fan of "Special K" Brook's fighting style. However, the likelihood of a fight between him and Mayweather just/merely being agreed within one month after September and the fight itself for December, is, to say the least, almost nil. Such a fight could happen in 2014, tho'.

Even if in May Canelo loses a chance to fight Mayweather in September, the Mayweather train will likely not start waiting around till August or later, to identify another opponent for September 14th. So I still think the chance that Mayweather fights a second time this year - in September - is pretty high, barring other catastrophes, of course.

Pitching these two sentences together is really unfair of you, Cshel, and really shows your level of distaste for the guy. [I only hope that level does not degenerate to that you had/still have for Allmenjoi8? lol.] Seriously, in view of his incarceration during 2012, whether foreseen (20/20?) or unforeseen, it did not in anyway constitute that Mayweather had lied by him proclaiming much earlier in that year that he was going to fight twice during that year. After all, the way you yourself wrote it, he qualified the proclamation when he said "that he was gonna try to fight twice in 2012."

Relax on Mayweather, man; let him enjoy the emerging twilight of his career.

P34c3

I can see a Mayweather/Brook fight being made just a month after September...trust me, the one and only reliable source from the very website, sat on the Mayweather/Cotto news for 2 months before it was announced. Mark my words on that. Lol

I cant truly say if Floyd is sure to fight in September, he could just hold out til December, who knows? Whose to say that something big wont happen in the WW division? We're only on month #2 of 2013 (well almost), so we never know what could happen. Again, we never know what Floyd wants to do, so I can't hold on to that September date just yet.

There's no distaste towards Floyd, if anything, it's too much taste for Floyd around here. Sometimes, guys forget that boxing is a business, and ANYTHING can happen. Whose to say that Floyd wont fight JMM in May? Who knew that JMM would've put Manny to sleep last month, and derailed the idea of a Rios fight in April? All I'm saying is, Manny and Floyd are the biggest names in the sport, and things do revolve around them...when those things go right.

In the meantime, we must pay attention to every other fighter's schedule, and see what can be made of it. You cant blame me for holding Floyd's word against him. You're right, he did say that he was going to "try" to fight twice in 2012, but the dude was only in jail for 60 days. I've seen guys like Tyson, do YEARS, and got right back out and was talking boxing.

Those years that Tyson did, could've been a financial hit (maybe), but Floyd doing 2 little months in isolation, is nothing. An average citizen's life would be totally derailed (money, job, etc) after 2 months behind bars, but a guy of Floyd's financial caliber, should've been just fine.

It's funny how his fans hold on to every single word that comes out of his mouth, but when he doesn't follow through, guys start making excuses for him. What if he doesn't fight in September? Then what?
