Default Floyd's next opponent?

I think the obvious choice is Berto. Berto is already signed with TMT promotions, and he will likely be in a fight of the year scenario with K-9.

More than likely, both fighters will hit the deck, and if not, Berto may win by spectacular KO, but he is very hittable and will likely take a lot of damage in return.

Also, Berto is a mentally weak fighter that will not have access to his steriods against Mayweather who will demand extreme drug testing measures.

Why Berto? Berto is the least risk, but due to the press he'll get in a fight of the year type of scenario against K-9 as well as a decent highlight real with some one punch KO's, the fight will potentially generate a large amount of cash.

Floyd will also hype of the fight and probably demean Berto by saying he's a "tune up" since he just got out of jail, and there is even a possibility there might be an under the table agreement where Berto doesn't try that hard and essentially throws the fight.

Why not? This won't hurt Mayweather's marketability because he can easily fight Pacquaio, Canelo or Martinez after his fight with Berto. If not them, he can perhaps fight Khan after Khan reestablishes himself, which was likely the original plan.

Hard to say to be honest...
Any word on IF he keeps his 154lbs belt or drops it?

No telling yet. I would say Floyd will start looking at options in December or January.

More than likely Robert Guerruo for he is his mandatory.

Floyd has not fought a mandatory or title eliminator since fighting Bruseles.

I don't think he'll take the mandatory and Guerrero looked like shit at 147 against Ayadin. Roberto needs to beat a Bradley and a Berto before I think he would get a shot.

Well if he chooses to hold on to his WBC title then he will have to fight Robert. Robert is a draw for he gets a lot of support from the Hispanic community but he did look like shit at 147.

He looked fat compared to how he looks at 135.

Shantel Jackson.

Floyd is mad because she was getting from 50 when he was in jail.

But Floyd is still a bit weary, because he has lost some muscle mass, after a few weeks in the gym he will go for it and he will take her phone too.

Safety first for Floyd, think he will take the decision.

Seriously Floyd needs to take on Martinez, Pacquiao or Golovkin or retire.

Will he step up to the challenge?

I doubt it

Typical DA comment.
Why would Floyd need to fight Martinez or Golovkin as a step up to challenge? He is near end of his career and he needs to step up to the challenge? Floyd have already peak his weight at 147 and really shouldn't even need to fight at 154 for he doesn't even weight 154 on fight night. Neither Pac or Floyd will fight Martinez or Golovkin. Martinez got a semi draw and Golovkin have litte drawing power.
