I think he's a good opponent for Floyd right now! He comes to fight and will be in great condition. If he can handle the weight and fight like he did against Berto without "feeling" Floyds punches, he'll do well! Floyd needs someone to push him because at his age its time to pour it out and get down to business!
He has two big fights in him and this one is a great start!
Even though he has limited experience at 47 Robert has earned a good pay day and he's no green kid! I don't think his power will effect Floyd dramaticly but I do think Floyd will need to come off the ropes and take over the center of the ring by the fourth round or right at the start!
Their equal in size but Floyd has held 47 obviously longer than Robert and I believe that is an advantage when round 8 comes along!
If Floyd is going to take this man on and come back to face Canelo (if both have wins) HA! (might be Trout vs Robert) HA! he will be doing himself some justice in my book and I personally haven't liked the way he's treated his sports integrity!!
Looks good on paper to me but paper burns easily!!! Sounds like a reasonable plan! Hell atleast he's fighting!!
