You think Guerrero's that awkward? I actually see him as a flat textbook fighter. He's really awkward and dirty on the inside, but on the outside, he seems really conventional. And I don't see Guerrero offering anything at close range Floyd can't solve with his guard.
Yeah, I meant more inside.

The problem for him is that Floyd is a) very well schooled on the inside himself, with those sneaky uppercuts and writhing defense and b) can prevent a determined foe from even getting inside in the first place.

If Guerrero can lunge/grab his way into close quarters and get away with a few unseen fouls, he can make it hairy. (or at least, hairier than it ever got with Ortiz winging prayers that never had a prayer of catching PBF flush...)

He'd be a favorite over Chavez. Compubox in that fight would be ridiculous. The guy counting Chavez's connects wouldn't have to use one finger.

Resuming his role as Mexecutioner.

I guarantee you half the forum would tip him to get KTFO, though.

Agreed. We might see Floyd foul right back himself if he feels up to it. Guerrero tying up Floyd's right arm and hitting would make for interesting viewing.

I think the odds makers will make Floyd about a 5/1 favorite. So at least on paper it is. But given Floyd's age, who knows. At some point, Floyd will look old if he keeps on fighting. Could be this fight.

When you are fighting a P4P ranked fighter in your weight class and people still consider it a mismatch you know you are good.

Anything less then25% chance of winning is a mismatch in my book. I say Guerrero has about 10% chance of winning

Unless Floyd has gotten old, Guerrero will be schooled on the art of infighting. Guerrero's body will be wide open for Floyd. Imo Guerrero can't take body shots, and fight a full 12 like he has been doing.

Mayweather gets away with taking these types of fights because he knows dumbasses will buy the ppv sad.

I'd pick Matthysse to ko both.
But who cares this is still a garbage fight to make when there's much better competition out there.
