With his recent release from the Clark County Detention Center, many boxing fans are wondering what the future holds for Floyd Mayweather. Contrary to reports that circulated during his incarceration, boxing's pound-for-pound king came out of jail looking bigger than ever, and it's highly unlikely that his short stint behind bars will have any negative effects on his career.
Obviously, many are hoping to get the next crack at Mayweather, but only a few will ever get the opportunity. Here are five potential opponents for Floyd's next fight:
1. Manny Pacquiao
Even though many boxing fans would like to see the highly anticipated bout between Mayweather and Pacquiao, it's probably the least likely fight to happen on my list. For one, Pacquiao has never showed a genuine desire to face Mayweather in the past, and it's highly unlikely that he'll get any more courageous now that he's in a slump.
"Money" doesn't really need Pacquiao to sell out arena's and put up impressive Pay-Per-View numbers, and the Filipino congressman can forget about anything close to a 50/50 split if he ever wants to square up against Mayweather.
2. Saul Alvarez
"Canelo's" handlers didn't think he was ready for Floyd after his May 5 bout against "Sugar" Shane Mosley, but the 22 year-old seems to think otherwise. Considering the fact Mayweather would probably want to take some time off before getting back inside the ring, a 2013 bout between the two does make some sense.
3. Sergio Martinez vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. winner
Two of the top middleweights in the world right now, a fight between Mayweather and the winner of their Sept. 15 bout would be an easy sell. Technically speaking, neither man really matches up with Mayweather, but their significant size advantage makes things a lot more interesting, especially if "Money" if willing to move up to the middleweight division (160 pounds).
4. Timothy Bradley
Bradley's win against Pacquiao might be suspect, but he's still the WBO welterweight champion. "Desert Storm" would be the perfect tune-up for Floyd if he wants to take things easy. And he'll also give "Money" the opportunity to snag up another title while handing Bradley his first professional defeat.
5. Robert Guerrero
Even though Guerrero's technique looked good during his last fight against Selcuk Aydin, I don't really like his chances against Mayweather. However, given Guerrero's easy to love personality/background story and Floyd's status as boxing's number one bad guy, a fight between the two will be a lot easier to sell than many seem to think. In case you haven't noticed already, Floyd Mayweather talking trash plus a likable fighter of Mexican heritage on Cinco de Mayo, equals lots of money for all involved. Like Mayweather likes to say, "it's about that paper."

pacquiao and alvarez' ppl wont let them fight floyd, guererro has more to prove, floyd belongs nowhere near 160lbs so forger martinez and even more so chavez jr, bradley might be tied up to a pacquiao rematch, if not hes the only real choice from these 5 imo.

after berto beats ortiz (i think that rematch is likely to get made again, what bigger fight could ortiz get atm?) berto vs floyd is a likely fight in 2013. not a great fight but likely, not all that bad either though.

the only one of those that is sure to happen at some point is canelo. floyd easily beats guerrero and bradley, won't fight chavez or martinez and the fact that the pacquiao fight hasn't been made by now is a mockery to the sport, especially given that both are clearly past their primes...

1. Canelo
2. Martinez
3. Guerrero

The other two choices are irrelevant because they are TR, and we know Arum loves to play games. I still think if Martinez beats Chavez, Floyd will fight him at 154. That, or take a risk and fight him @160.

Mayweather: champion in 6 divisions anyone??

If Pac/Arum won't consider Floyd, then I think Bradley is the next best fight for Floyd.

Here's why:

1. If Mayweather beats Bradley more convincingly then he gets to do what Manny has done to him, which is look better against a common opponent after the other one fought them first. Manny has looked better against Oscar, Hatton, and Cotto...while Floyd looked better against Marquez and Mosley.

2. Pac and Bradley only did 950k ppv. Mayweather vs. Bradley would probably sell around 1.2 -1.4 million which gives Floyd even more leverage on their split assuming they fight. Bradley was pretty good on 24/7 and would create intrigue due to his lucky decision against Pac.

3. A Bradley/Mayweather fight would open the doors to Top Rank and TMT working together which could open doors to more stable negotiations for Pac and Floyd afterwards.
