Who else? Manny's out till September at least, JMM got beat soundly already, Malignaggi, Zaveck, Berto, Ortiz? Yeah, exactly.

2nd would probably be Bradley, but The Ghost is clearly the best fight at 147 for May 4th.
Exactly. I'd prefer Canelo over Guerrero, but I don't think GBP will put their cash cow in their with FMJ just yet. Now if Guerrero has some success than it may happen in September. For now, Guerrero seems to be the best pick out of there. That or FMJ could move up to '54 and fight there.

Guerrero could very well lose a wide UD, but to say that he'll get KO'ed in 2-4 rounds is ludicrous (and no, I'm not saying that you stated that. However, there are posters in here who say he has a zero chance and it won't be a good fight). Again, I'm just hoping to see FMJ get pushed into a good/great fight. I think the first few rounds will be indicative of how the fight will end. If Guerrero goes in there with the sole purpose of hitting the sweet spot a la Ortiz, then we will have a one-sided affair with FMJ drubbing Guerrero. But, and that is a big but, if Guerrero goes in there and smothers FMJ and turns it into a Berto type mauling then we might be in for a decent fight where the young Guerrero is taking the fight to FMJ. At least Guerrero has shown that even if he gets hit, he won't stop from trying to closing the distance to get some work in.
