Mayweather is ultra-consistent with his plan and isn't known for being unpredictable. The only move Mayweather could make that I would be pleasantly surprised with is fighting Martinez @160. It's a fight nobody is expecting him to take, but we would still love to see Floyd put his rep on the line in that manner.

It's like Cotto when he chose to fight Trout. I could see the threat that Trout possessed and couldn't understand why Cotto would willingly put himself in that situation, but I definitely appreciated the choice. That's not the type of move that Floyd would make because the risk doesn't make sense to take. Cotto could've side-stepped Trout and went straight for Canelo because he has the political pass to do so. If the money isn't there, or if the fighter hasn't met some sort of requirement, Mayweather won't bother and keep it moving. It's a good quality in a human being, but not an admirable quality in a fighter.
