Ok, I've been scanning this situation with Money vs Canelo over and over in my brain and I realized that now it seems Floyd will be staying at 147 since they stripped him of his belt at 154 and everyone seems to want him to go back up and face a bigger Alvarez (who walks around at 170/re-hydrates to the same weight on fight night) and there are those (Haters, mostly) who expects him to make the move back up and not do it at a CW but then those same (Haters, mostly) gave Manny Pac a pass when he took on an Old/way past it/Over-the-hill Oscar at 147 (a weight he hadn't been at in 9 years) for Manny's CW fight with him at WW.

So the questions are: Is there a Double Standard here?? And, if so, why does it exist for Floyd and not for Manny Pacquiao??

DISCUSS!!

I think the funny part is that people always demand mayweather to take on the challenges (some just physically not realistic) yet they don't ask the same out of the guys they want him to fight

Ggg- how many top middleweights has he fought?

Guerrero- I said this before and ill say it again aydin and berto are not tune ups for mayweather. They guy got that shot with his wifes backstory and his mouth.

Canelo- suppose to be a unified champ at 154, yet he's fought only 1 154 pounder.

Martinez is the only guy who constantly fights tough opponents and comes out on top. I think Bradley is also really overlooked for a mayweather fight but promotional ties will not let it happen.

ggg just got to the u.s. so i think he'll make his run at greatness. he doesn't seem like the type to make excuses or avoid competition so i'll give him the benefit of the doubt for the moment.

guerrero just jumped 2 weight classes from 135 to 147. only other guys to do that and be victorious....henry armstrong, roberto duran, shane mosley. that's great company to be in.

canelo loss to trout so u won't get any arguments from me on this.

martinez is legit.

of the four guys u named....none of them are making the claim of being the best EVER. floyd is. u make a claim like that...it has to be backed up.

ali made that claim...and he proved it more than once. he was the underdog against liston....and he was the underdog against foreman. i cannot remember floyd ever being an underdog.
