Default Re: Which fighter would have the best chance of beating Floyd right now?

1. Canelo (mainly due to his size and also he is unexposed, we dont know how good he is yet)
2. Pacquaio (still a quality fighter despite probably being on decline)
3. Matthyese (if he could pressure Floyd, has more power than Guerrero and good chin, weight could be an issue though)
4. Guerrero (pressure fighter, could potentially try to put Floyd out of his rhythm back him to the ropes)
5. Brook/Alexander (speedy, youngish) and Bradley (awkward style)

Guerrero is a joke. People will jump on any bandwaggon these days.

Oh, cool...
Floyd should be able to move up to 160 to fight Martinez, but Pacquiao shouldn't have to go down to 140 to fight Marquez. Paclogic.

1. Canelo
2. Bradley
3. Pacquiao
4. Guerrero
5. Brook
6. Matthyese
7. Alexander

Canelo has a 65-35 chance based on size and age alone. Bradley and Pacquiao have slim chances but could pull off a 7-5 decision under the right circumstances. The rest I don't see having anything more than a puncher's chance.

Cotto in a rematch is also higher than most fighters on that list.

Because Guerrero beat a useless, hypejob he's going to do the same to Mayweather?

Floyd will never fight Martinez. Why do people keep bringing it up.

Or better yet... just wait two more years. Floyd is up for Grabs for any elite fighter in the game.
Especially he only wants to come back when his millions are getting low. Worst way to stay in the boxing game.

Maravilla-Mayweather is 50/50 for me, but from the list:

1. Bradley because he has not only a style or "styles" to give anyone fits, but the guy when he has a gameplan he follows it to the t. He adapts to your style and brawls, pressures, and boxes equally well which tho not as slick or refined as Floyd and with even less ko power he has in common with Floyd. Any other era he'd be much, much more appreciated, but everybody wants ko's. Very underrated.

2. Canelo physically is ready, but I don't think he might be ready mentally tho for the most part fights like a seasoned vet. He can overpower Floyd, but not outsmart him. Still, Canelo has the youth, speed, power, and combination boxing to keep Floyd wary. A powerful body attack would be Canelo's best strategy.

3. Guerrero potentially COULD be Floyd's worst nightmare. No need to match Floyd with defense and speed when you have an iron chin and non-stop pressure attack at short, mid, and long range like Ghost. Now that Guerrero has gotten himself comfortable and filled in at 147 he made himself at home and really does want Floyd it seems more than anybody. Before the joke most laughed at, no one is laughing now. He could be a southpaw version of Castillo waiting for Floyd, a talented, rugged fighter in his prime not about to have Floyd have his way. Now that we know Guerrero is for real and knowing his performance vs Berto would be nothing once he gets Floyd, you know it might have the makings of a special fight night. Ghost seems to only be getting better and more motivated each time past fights win or lose dont really matter only that they made him into the fighter today. I have a feeling Floyd wins the fight, but Guerrero might win the event.

I think if we really want to see Mayweather tested. He needs to fight at 160. Guys like Martinez, Golovikn and Qullin may not be as good as Mayweather, or some of the guys on the opening list. However, they have a greater chance of beating Mayweather than any of them.

Because some of us remember a time when boxers fought the best of their peers in order to prove their ability and solidify their legacy rather than some random helper because they were pretty sure they wouldn't lose and were sure of another tasty payday.
