Default Re: Alexander vs Mayweather looks on

..basically translates to:

"You [Guerrero's team] better hurry up and agree to what we've proposed, because we've got 'other' people in line"

Alexander's name is just being used to make Guerrero settle for the peanuts he deserves.

But with that said, it is a huge move to cancel the Brook fight all together just to be in the 'run-in' for a possible Mayweather fight . What a ****, Floyd is. Postponing and cancelling fights that have nothing to do with him as and when he pleases. Feel so sorry for Brook.
