Guerrero Deserves Shot At Floyd Over Canelo
Guerrero is not that big of a WW and beat a fairly big one in Andre Berto and also took down Aydin. Those are two legit WWs. This is impressive considering he jumped two weight classes after an extended break to fight these guys and prove himself. He has also shown a great chin in both of these fights. He has also won handily against guys like Katsidis, Escobedo, Litzau, and Casamayor.
Canelo, on the other hand, comes into his fights at about the same weight as Sergio Martinez and for the most part has fought old, blown-up WWs. His youth and size give him a great advantage. I realize he is only 22, but he has yet to fight a top 10 JMW and maybe not even one in the top 15. Ryan Rhodes may have been the only one who fell into of these categories.
How has he earned a fight with Floyd? Let him fight someone like Trout, Lara, Molina, Kirkland, or Martirosyan first. Angulo at this point may also be a step up.
