At least if Sergio beat him there, he'd get mad props from everyone.
I still think Floyd beats Sergio though. Yes, Floyd would have a tough time no doubt, and it'd be a really close fight in my opinion, scores all close, but I wouldn't bet against Floyd. Sergio's last fight was bulls**t. The wins over Pavlik, Williams, and Dzinziruk were all good wins no doubt. Barker was a bit of a joke. I mean Lou and Sergio have the nerve to say "Who has Pirog beat besides Jacobs???", but then turn around and fight Barker, who'd beat no one. And now we have Macklin, a very good fight. Macklin beat Sturm in all reality and should be the MW champion right now.
Whats interesting is that Sergio still looked quick and fresh against Barker, but wasn't blowing Barker out of the water like he should have. He was beating Barker, but Barker seemed to catch Sergio with some punches, far more than I thought he would.
The only guys I'd really be interested in seeing Floyd fight above 147 lbs are Cotto, Kirkland, Alvarez, and Martinez. That's it.
I want to see the Kirkland-Molina winner vs. Vanes in July and than who ever comes out of that against Alvarez in November or December.
I want to see Floyd-Alvarez
