Default What is the next biggest fight to be made In your opinion?

Floyd vs Martinez for the 160lbs title at a catch weight. Martinez isn't as skilled as I thought he was in his last fight, but his power is his equalizer. At a catch weight of lets say 156, Martinez still hits like a mule and it can present a certain level of danger. Floyd didn't looks as great at 154 so it should make things interesting.

Floyd vs Amir Khan..Khan can box, he's aggressive and I don't think he'd be at all bothered by the trash talk. He might even embrace it. Its also a battle of who is the best trainer etc. Roach feels he is, Roger may feel that he is. This can be hit from so many angles.

Khan vs PAC..Again Arum is in the way, but it would be intriging from many aspects. Roach choosing PAC over Khan of course, Khan talking trash about PAC needing to retire and that he feels Marquez won etc.

I'm talking about the next biggest fights for the sport that could be made. The kind of fight that would make pure MMA fans watch or at least be intrigued.

Floyd vs Martinez would be the next most intriguing fight.. IMO it already is more intriguing then May vs Pac, but it's not happening for a few reasons.. The general public and casual boxing and fight fans do not know much about Serge so Floyd could probably make much more money and take much less risk fighting Canelo, Morales or maybe even Guererro. Beating Serge would be better for Floyd's legacy but according to Floyd "Legacy don't pay the bills"

LOL FLoyd is somewhat right about that. Titles only collect dust and fees and legacy doesn't pay bills all of the time.

Mayweather-Martinez easily. Cotto-Martinez or or even Cotto-Alvarez end of next year sometime in 2013 would be interesting.

Maritinez v.s. Mayweather Jr. at 154 is the most interesting fight IMO.

But seriously:

Mayweather - Martinez, of COURSE.

or maybe Vitali - Helenius. (despite his dismal performance against Delboy, Helenius is still the most dangerous of the HW top-tier.)

I personally feel Khan does not deserve a shot at neither Pacquiao or Mayweather. Its still fights to be made for Khan at 140 and the guy has not fought once at 147 yet, lets see him win this fight this saturday fight either Guerrero or Bradley (probably will be Guerrero since Bradley seems to be ducking) next and afterwards fight maybe Berto at 147 and another 147lber then he can talk about Mayweather or Pacquiao who will probably be up in age anyway. Its very weird with him how you call someone out and say he don't want to fight you then say yourself you need 2 more fights and you will be ready Guerrero said that best.

That said next big fights that should and could be made include

Mayweather vs Pacquiao
Super Six winner vs Bute
Khan vs Bradley
Dawson vs Pascal 2
Martinez vs Pirog


and the biggest fight to be made is.....................





Mayweather vs Merchant in "if I was 50 years younger"
