I don't think Alverez is all that good. I think Geurrero does fight like Castillo and has the potential to be Floyd's toughest foe since Castillo I. Forget the second fight, neither did shit, and I scored it a draw, although I was very pissed and wanted Floyd to lose, because I think Jose was robbed in the first fight, and my hatred of Floyd as a person was pretty intense. It HAS mellowed somewhat. LOL! I like Guerreo's aggression and balls to the wall approach. The layoff will tell us a lot. Maybe, just maybe Floyd doesn't have the great slickness and agility that he used to have, and if Floyd's reflexes are not so good, in addition to THE POTENTIAL for Guerrero to be in the pocket and agressive. A type of opponent who Floyd has not seen in a long time, could Robert pull off the upset?
Let's not forget that Floyd is not getting any younger! I wonder what the odds will be for Guerrero to win? I mean this is totally due to age in inactivity for Floyd, who would sweep the floor with Guerrero just a few years ago. Robert will fight to the end and is a good mandatory. Alverez is the bigger name, but even an inactive Floyd stops him on cuts in about 10 rounds.
Bigger Money-Floyd vs. Alverez
Riskier Fight with a potential shock-Floyd-Guerrero
Idk if I'm the only one, but Castillo loss to Floyd pretty clearly, MOST of his shots were blocked, I've seen Floyd in much closer and tougher fights. I remember him saying that he thought the fight was easy and he knew he won clearly.
I was once against Floyd vs Guerrero because I do think Floyd should just fight the best out there, but its his first fight since coming out of jail, and he's older. He's smart enough to know he needs a tune up before a real fight later this year. A quick payday until his record breaker with Canelo.. I think they are just feeding Guerrero to Floyd, hes mexican american so they will try to sell that off, and they caught him coming off that win where he made Berto look like he had allergies.
Easy fight for Floyd and i think its going to be the fight that we need to where Floyd will dominate and do damage. Floyd is coming back bigger and stronger, he has fought many many many fighters who try to come up and throw him against the ropes. I dont think Ghost gets away with as much dirty shit as he did against Berto, and he will get held alot if he tries to get to crazy. Floyd out works him, much faster, alot of counters and alot of straight right hands with a few lefts hooks and he's out. Mayweather's has an inside game unlike berto, I just dont see this going anyway like it did against berto, i just see a Mayweather Domination.
Victor ortiz and Berto had a war...Mayweather was breaking Victor down and dominating him whiched force him to get feral and then get put down....Mayweather hasn't been inactive as much as paquiao was so i dont see him being that rusty. He probably went to the gym the day after He say Pac get knocked out lol, he already knew!
Floyd has a harder time Canelo, who is pretty well rounded though he does get hit alot he is getting better.
If mayweather holds true to not facing Guerrero then he should face bradley...I dont think bradley would mind taking that payday.
IF Canelo really wants to test himself to be confident for floyd the only choice i see is trout. No doubt.
