Default What would it mean if Robert Guerrero beat Mayweather?

What would this mean for boxing?

What would it mean for Mayweather?

What would it mean for Mayweather vs Pacquiao?

Crazier shit has happened so this wouldn't exactly be the most earth shattering if it did happen...

It would make RG the #1 man @147 & earn him a P4P ranking.
For Mayweather it would mean a crossroads type decision.
(Also depends how he lost & looked while doing so)

Big money for Guerrero, "Cha-Ching!" A rematch or even Alvarez.

Means end of an era.

Rg probably moves to number 2 p4p behind Ward.

What would this mean for boxing? -End of an era.

What would it mean for Mayweather? -He has declined a huge amount within the past year, even more and faster than he's already been declining.

What would it mean for Mayweather vs Pacquiao? -Possibly renew some interest with a rebound type promotional strategy.

It'd mean that Floyd lost to a career featherweight, who's probably a legit lightweight right now, with no power at welterweight, who's still too green for a fight of this magnitude, while controlling the entire promotion and holding all of the advantages.

IE: it won't happen

Floyd is fighting this guy for a reason

Wouldn't mean much. Floyd is 35 going on 36. Right at the age when you really start to slow down athletically. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if he loses. No one stays on top forever, including Floyd. At some point, a lesser talented yet younger fighter will beat him if he keeps on fighting. He's fighting time now. And no one beats father time outside of B-Hop.

end of the era: Pacquiao, Mayweather, Mosley, Morales, Barrera all of them gone only one still fighting would be Marquez and without Pacquiao i think he'd retire too

Mayweather has punished & dominated every southpaw that he has faced, this fight will be no different.

He's not a joke, and he has a better shot than Bradley, it would mean Floyd got old I don't see it killing his legacy.

bad for boxing. Guerrero is a decent fighter who does nothing exceptionally well and who relies on dirty tactics a lot (as does Ward). It would be a turning to the paradigm of "dirty" trumps "skill" with which Hopkins was always flirting. Cementing the coffin on the legacy of well rounded fighters who came up the hard way (as Floyd did at 130 - challenging himself very early in his career against great and good fighters from Manfredy to Genaro Hernandez to Corrales to Castillo)

I think Floyd is one of the youngest "complete" fighters to come along - all these up and comers show glaring flaws in their early fights that really indicate they aren't world class. Those kinds of things don't happen when you watch the entire early careers of say Barrera or Marquez or Hopkins (who was a murderer early in his career). The only ATG who looked like garbage early was Pac, and he fixed that somehow.

First it depends on the way he loses and the way Guerrero fights. What if Guerrero comes and fights in a monsterous form and just massacres Floyd who displays for a while his usual brilliance? It would give Guerrero a massive boost in practically everything as he seemed like a new fighter, and it just proved too much for an old Floyd.


Now what if an unimpresive Guerrero beats an unimpresive Mayweather?

It has different results depending on how the fight goes.
