Martinez and Murray already have done press conferences and signed to fight.

Timothy Bradley is already signed to fight Ruslan Provvdjsdif?? in March and has had press conferences already. Plus he's with Top Rank

Canelo is plausible, but they are supposed to fight in September I guess.

Trout is a good one also

Floyd already beat Marquez 120-107

Canelo will be in September I reckOn. If Floyd beats Guerrero and Canelo in that frame he is the Ring champ in two divisions at the same time

Yup, and you know unfortunately that none of these fights are ever going to happen. Floyd used to take chances with dangerous opponents, fighting guys like Corrales and DeLaHoya, but alas those days are gone. Roy did the same damn thing. Fought all his biggest threats early in his career (Hopkins, Toney, McCallum) and then tried to coast for the remainder with B-level guys.

By B level guys do you mean champions ranked at the top of their divisions?

Ranked #1 according to who? The phony sanctioning bodies? I don't see how anyone can even defend Mayweather anymore. Is he very skilled? Yes. Is he very talented? Yes. But he fights once a year if you're lucky. He hasn't fought an undefeated guy since he took on Ricky Hatton in 2007. Last year he fought Cotto. Great. We already knew Margarito's plaster ruined him. He can shut up about how great he is until he gets back to being a full-time athlete and not just some jackass with a record label.

So who should he be fighting instead of the Ring Magazine top ranked fighters?

Cotto - #1 Jr MW
Ortiz - #3 WW (Floyd was 2)
Mosley - #1 WW (#3 P4P)
Marquez - #1 LW (#3 P4P)

43 fights at 35 years old when most people on the P4P list are in their late 20's with ~ 30 fights.

You just start watching boxing, pal?

beating hw champ john ruiz, who was coming off the holyfield trilogy and beating of then undefeated kirk johnson, was a b-level fight?

helluva accomplishment.
