Default 2 "official" losses in a row and Pac is still the biggest $ fight for Floyd!

This can not be disputed. Not Canelo nor Martinez, nor Marquez II will generate more money for Floyd than Pacquiao. If you ask me this irks Floyd. He has worked so hard to maintain his undefeated record yet his arch nemesis who had just lost his last 2 fights would STILL make for the richest fight in boxing.

Canelo would be big but not HUGE. He's big in Mexico but not as a worldwide star such as Pac.

Martinez would be big but would pull in less money than a fight than both Pac and Canelo due to limited Argentinian fanbase along with limited casual fanbase.

A rematch against JMM would draw some interest after his KO win against Pac but given the fact that their first fight was non competitive it also would draw little interest.

The fact that Floyd is still asked by interviewers about the possibility of a showdown with Pac shows that there is still much interest in this fight.

Most casual Americans are not that familiar with Canelo. Those who do know him know him as the red headed boxer from Mexico. He would need a high profile dramatic fight in order for this to be huge.

A fight with Martinez would do maybe a little better than half of what a fight between Floyd and Pac did despite Pac's recent losses. Pac is still a worldwide boxing icon with a very exciting fan friendly style. Fighters like him dont lose popularity.

I am not so sure I agree with this to be honest, I think depending on the Trout Canelo fight, well Canelo lets be real maybe not worldwide as you said but his fan base is strong and Mexicans do come out to the fights they do order the PPV events. He has fans in the right places in other words.... I think Canelo may be the biggest money fight should he impress with Trout

Trout's style makes his opponents look bad even if you were to defeat him. I dont think one win over a guy like Trout who is also unknown to the boxing masses would put Canelo on the big stage and noticed by casuals. He's huge in Mexico but not in the states just yet. He needs a big breakthrough fight against a popular opponent first.

No.
Canelo or Martinez --- much bigger.
And if Pac fights Floyd, Floyd gets 89 mil, Pac 5 mil.
Thats all he is worth.
Cant win a fight.

Which is why he is promised a Mayweather fight in Sept, Now should Canelo beat the breaks off of Trout, its not out of the question that he can pull off a win against Floyd.
