I think Floyd stops at 36. I don't see him fighting Guerrero unless there is something in the Ghost's backdrop that can be sold to the casual fan. How and why do you think Floyd/Vic did 1.25M buys? Vic's triumphant win over Berto and all of his life's adversity (family, homeless, quit on stool, etc.). Great storyline. Had Berto won, they had the Haiti backdrop to sell (though they're black fighters and if there's anything America has taught us is, we don't REALLY care about poor countries (or areas in the U.S.) whose primary residents are black. Remember, if doesn't make dollars, it doesn't make sense. Then again, it is Cinco de Mayo....
I think Guerrero's backstory would be great, but the idea of the fight is too soon. He is definitely about two years away from a Mayweather fight. If he can wiggle his way into a fight with Khan (which would be easy) or Ortiz (somewhat unlikey), to get some outside fans somewhat interested.
I believe his wife's cancer situation would play a big part in his backstory, and he's a great determined fighter, so it shouldn't be hard to put together. The only thing hilding it back is the fact that its too soon and he doesn't have that big fan base just yet.
