It's not really a good time for floyd. Manny is the fight he wanted, to win his no 1 ranking back. But now that pac has pulled out and Berto and Mosey are busy theres nothing really meaningful he COULD do. Bradley maybe but floyd prefers fights that are marketable and Bradley does not have a big fan-base yet. Maybe he could fight RICKY Hatton in Manchester. I dunno. If I was him id wait for the winner of Mosely/Berto..of course that involves the issue of is he really willing to fight those guys...if he really wanted to prove how legendary he is..PAUL WILLIAMS at 154!

He wouldn't take such a great risk because boxing is just a way to generate cash for him.

That is why he will never be true HOF, despite his amazing talent.

If Manny does actually sign to fight Clottey (another recognised top 5 welterweight) Floyd has to fight a live opponent at 147 or 154, or he's gonna look like a total bitch.

How the hell is Mayweather gonna convince the public that he's still the GOAT by fighting the likes of Hatton or Mallinaggi??? That will take quite the sales job. lol

id consider baldomir and de la hoya to be AT LEAST welterweights

depends really on when he actually wants to fight...he cant fight march 13th because pac-clottey is then...i dont think hbo ppv would put 2 ppv's in the same calendar month

so if he waits till mid april then shane mosley will be ready and willing

Its easy to talk about the past were talking now everybody wants floyd he can fight who he wants, who will he fight he has the choice ? HBO been trying to get him with a WW for years now....

That is another of Floyds favourites, he offered some guy a fight some years back so hes off the list

I never saw a guy with so many reasons not to fight the welterweights LOL


But when its JMM a 135lber.....

he has a country behind him

A COUNTRY

Just a thought!
cheato would be just as big a mismatch as hatton....BTW 40 fights, he has been the bigger man in 2 of them
