Who is he gonna FIGHT?

Floyd keeps saying in All Access that he's going to do 30 months and he has a plan. So I guess October 2015 he is going to hang up his gloves. Thats 5 fights going on his two fights a year model. Maybe 6 fights max.

Now I'm thinking...whats he thinking...what are his options after Guerrero?

This fall I think its between Canelo, Alexander and Brook...maybe even the Peterson/Matthysse winner to get this P4P rating stronger. Its likely Mayweather may chase the money and go for Canelo as theres a lot of talk going on now and its best to catch Canelo when his skills are raw.

Then next May I'm thinking its the Bradley/JMM winner.

Then that fall another chance probably to go for Canelo. There could be a Canelo vs Sergio fight earlier in the year and that will lead to Mayweather's next one.

After that I got no idea but he has to see JMM, Bradley, Sergio, Pacquiao (???) and Canelo before he goes.

So people really think Floyd will give up 25 lbs on fight night.

My thoughts as well.

Mayweather would probably hold someone such as Martinez to Martinez' original offer to fight him at 150, AND for a 20:80 purse split in favor of Floyd.

Failing that kind of arrangement, I won't be surprised if Mayweather would insist on a max fight night weight of 160 for his opponent for a JMW fight, and I won't blame him - virtually all the greats pulled all sorts of stunts, as they held most of the aces late into their twilight years in competitive boxing.

Mayweather is well aware that a major blunder in his match-making at this late stage in his brilliant and fortunate career, can cost him his very precious "0."

Depending on how his fight with Guerrero goes, I think Mayweather will fight a 147 pounder this September, then take on a 154 guy - most probably Canelo - in May of '14. I think this because, as Mayweather defines it, he is serious about allowing his body to properly heal in-between fights.

I just want Mayweather to fight the best. These are his final fights and if he wants to be considered among the 10 or so best p4p fighters of all-time then he NEEDS to improve his opposition. RG is ok. He is a decent fighter. The problem is I see Mayweather fighting a bunch of marginal guys the rest of the way if he doesn't face Canelo.

-Andre Berto
-Zab Judah (rematch)
-Danny Garcia
-Amir Khan
-Victor Ortiz (rematch)
-Lamont Peterson

Those are the options if no Canelo. Meh...hardly worthy of closing out Floyd's career. If Floyd wants to be considered one of the true greats, he NEEDS to take some risks. I never thought I would say Canelo was a risk, but apparently he has become one due to the weight.
