Not after Sergio beats P-Will in the rematch.
If that fight happen; awesome.. if not, we all can dream.

Floyd's shoulder roll would not work against Sergio. It is a style issue.
Floyd would not get respect in there...and he would need to get inside. How exactly do you see Floyd fighting Martinez? Remember, Martinez will not walk to Floyd, and he will not back straight up either. He can land from places Floyd can't, and he is bigger, stronger, has excellent feet, and plenty of speed.
This isn't a P4P issue or discussion...this is Floyd fighting at weight that is higher than he likes. His only time above welter he fought Oscar and did not look special in there...that version of Floyd does not beat Martinez in my opinion. Bear in mind, this is not off the Pavlik fight...I have been saying that the most interesting Floyd fight for me would be Martinez for a long time now. To me, that would be a problem fight for Floyd...you see something I don't with this one; what am I not seeing here?
It would definitely be a problem for Floyd, if you didn't see my post prior, I said Floyd would have an easier time figuring out Paul Williams. However, Sergio is not as great a Boxer as Floyd, and by you saying Sergio can land in placed Floyd can't, I assume you mean 'angles'. Are you kidding me, we're talking Floyd Mayweather.. if there is an angle, Floyd can make contact. As for Sergio's speed — Timing > Speed > Power. Case closed.
Floyd wouldn't have a problem landing on Sergio, I would consider Floyd's ability to see openings and counterpunch to be more reliable than anything Sergio has taught himself to do in the Pavlik or Williams fight. If you believe that those overhand lefts would land on Floyd just because he's a southpaw, and the rumor is that Floyd has trouble with southpaws, I doubt such. I am not throwing Sergio under the bus, the man is an extremely talented southpaw, but just not talented enough to dethrone Mayweather.
And no, I haven't forgotten when Judah landed on Floyd and knocked him down. I have taken that into consideration.
