Default How many people seriously want to see Mayweather-Garcia after Mayweather-Guerrero?

I saw in another thread that a lot of people brought up Garcia as a potential opponent for Mayweather after may 4th. Seriously though? That shouldn't happen for at least another year.

Garcia beats Judah, the Peterson-Mathysse winner and at least 1 top-5ish WW, and then maybe i'm ready to see it (i know that Garcia really isn't any smaller than Floyd, but he still needs to do SOMETHING at the weight they would fight at).

Thoughts?

I would want to see it if Garcia moves up and beats a good top 10 type WW.

It's a realistic fight, rather than people who bring up Top Rank fighters and Middleweights.

Hell no I don't. Garcia is a Jr. Welterweight and needs to stay there.

He needs to be Mathysse before even thinking about facing Floyd.

This.

Garcia would get trashed badly with those wide hooks though. If there's one thing Floyd can still do really, really well, it's getting off with a lead/counter right. That punch alone will mess Garcia up good.

Matthysse and Lamont PEDerson would actually do better against Floyd than Garcia would (though PEDerson wouldn't get the fight because he'd fail the blood tests at some point and test positive for several bear tranquilizers, a few horse steroids, and a combined testosterone level exceeding 2011 Alistair Overeem, 2009 Badr Hari, and 2010 Chael Sonnen.)

Garcia needs to beat the top comp. @ 140 and then a couple of WW's... along the lines of Alexander and... Ortiz perhaps? I'd be impressed if he was able to do such.

Garcia is a highly overrated fighter and will be exposed shortly. Super Judah might even be the guy to do it lmao

if nobody else is available I'd like Garcia for his Ring Belt. Don't bring him up in weight like Pac did to Bradley

He should never fight floyd at all and I doubt he will. I heard an interview once where garcia was suprised that amir khan wanted to fight floyd and said he's nowhere near his level. He thinks highly of floyd and doesnt think he could actually beat him, at least in his current state.

I doubt garcia would rematch Khan but if he did and won, he would basically put a huge dent in amir khan's greatness as a boxer. After two losses (if they do happen), Khan would always be measured against Garcia who isn't as of now an ATG.

If that's true, than Garcia is more intelligent than I gave him credit for and a realistic ****yst of himself and other fighters.

However, I'm sure he'd change his mind if Floyd & Co. waved enough money in his dad's face.

Garcia has plenty of quality opposition at 140 and doesn't have the style to beat Mayweather. He plants himself and tries to land hard counters over the top while slipping towards the inside. Floyd would just pick him apart from the outside.
