I could see a lot of people sitting this one out, especially considering that a Pacquiao fight is not being talked about anymore.
Last time Floyd fought without Canelo being a part of it was Marquez and barely did a million on the PPV. Marquez had a lot of name recognition coming off the Pac fights and it was on Mexican independence weekend. Robert Guerrero couldn't be picked out of a line up by most sports fans. I say he needs Canelo more than people think, but we will see eventually.
Good points. Boxing seems to be lacking in the "future stars" department, and Mayweather has to decide right now what role he's gonna play. Is he gonna do a favor and share the spotlight with Canelo, or is he gonna say "F
uck that" and make the young gun work for the shot?
