Default Mayweather-Guerrero or Mayweather-Alvarez?

1. Which fight would you prefer for next Cinco de Mayo?



2. Which fighter do you think is more deserving of the big payday?



3. Who has a better chance of beating Floyd?

1. Alvarez is a better boxer than Guerrero. + Alvarez
2. Alvarez is in the weight class Mayweather last fought in.
3. At 35 or 36 by the time they fight it might not be as easy for Mayweather to go back to 147, as it was when he fought De La Hoya. + Guerrero
4. There are more makeable big fights for Mayweather than there are at 147 + Alvarez.
5. Alvarez is a bigger star than Guerreo is + Alvarez
6. Guerrero/Broner makes more sense than Guerrero/Mayweather. Going from 135 to 147 is not a stretch or unheard of. They are about equal in size. + Alvarez.
7. Guerrero is coming off a better win. + Guerrero
8. Alvarez has been a champion longer + Alvarez.

In the end a fight with Alvarez makes more sense.

I'd like to see Maywether take a shot at a middleweight champion. I don't see anyone who can test him at 147 or 154.

Alvarez doesn't deserve anything. The guy is a complete fraud and his quality of opposition has been embarrassing.

Guerrero deserves it.

But in my opinion both fights are mismatches.

Neither.

I'd much rather see Guerrero-Bradley and Canelo-Cotto/Martinez.

Guerrero vs. Alvarez for the privilege. (on the Cinco de Mayo undercard of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, which there's nothing in the way of given that it's five months removed from Marquez IV)

Yeah, take Guerrero up one more weight class. Of course beating up smaller men is up right up Can's ally. Just ask Ulises Solis.

Guerrero earned his shot the hard way. He is more deserving of the payday with what he has been through in his life.

Golden Boy Promotions already has that date reserved for Alvarez to headline.
