Default What's with all the "Guerrero deserves the shot against Floyd"?

I like and respect Guerrero's toughness but real boxing fans know that the best and biggest fight that can happen right now for Floyd is against Canelo. It seems as if everyone is just accepting the politics of "let him fight the Ghost to build up a fight with Canelo in Sept". Who says there's a guarantee Floyd fights Canelo in Sept or that Floyd even fights at all after May? Guerrero's only chance at victory is if he makes it ugly the way he did against Berto and hope that Floyd's legs are really gone. If not Floyd picks him apart from the outside en route to a UD.

Now aside from a few Floyd diehards that seem to be concerned about Floyd fighting Canelo for whatever reason, there is absolutely ZERO fan outcry for a Floyd/Guerrero fight. Casual boxing fans wouldnt even be able to pick out Guerrero in a 3 man lineup. He's just not known outside of the boxing diehards. Canelo on the other hand is the most recognizable Mexican fighter at the moment aside from maybe Chavez Jr. He has a huge following and it would make for a tremendously successful PPV. Ellerbe stated that Floyd only wants BIG fights next year. There's nothing "BIG" about a fight with Guererro

Now as for: "well Guerrero deserves the shot". Really? How? By beating a guy that Floyd already beat in only his 2nd fight at 147? You can say that Canelo hasnt really fought anyone worthy of lining him up a shot against Floyd and that may be true. Fact is though that given the notoriety of both fighters, the styles of both fighters, the strength and size that Canelo brings to the ring along with his combination punching power, it makes for a MUCH bigger event on Cinco de Mayo wknd than Floyd/Guerrero fight.

-Who did Cotto beat to deserve a shot at Floyd? A one-eyed shot Margarito?

- Who did JMM beat to deserve a shot at Floyd? Juan Diaz @ 135?

- Who did Ricky Hatton beat to deserve a shot at Floyd? A shot to pieces Jose Luis Castillo?

- Who did ODH beat to deserve a shot at Floyd? Ricardo Mayorga?

Etc....


The reason why most of these fights happened were because of name recognition and they made for big events. So lets not act as if Floyd only fights fighters who "deserve" a shot against him. Canelo is a young prime fighter who is calling Floyd out. Every Floyd fan should be demanding this fight!

Out of the three viable opponents, he's the only one that's done anything.
Cotto lost and ginger stays beating old and smaller guys.
As we all know in the end, it's not if you deserve it or not but if you bring a crowd.... which is the only reason Canelo is even being considered... as well as Cotto

If the choice is between Alvarez and Guerrero, well the Ghost deserves that fight much more.

How do you know Alvarez is a bigger threat? When has he shown that?

Neither fighter really has much on the resume to deserve a shot at Floyd, but there's just not much out there. Floyd isn't going to fight the likes of Martinez, guys like Bradley and Trout hold no interest, and Pac just got stopped. Canelo is more dangerous than Guerrero due to his size and power, but probably both teams would rather that fight be on the backburner. Canelo has yet to fight a real challenge within his own weight class and the last time he fought a guy with solid boxing skills(undersized Alfonso Gomez) he had massive problems, which doesn't bode well for him with Floyd obviously. Floyd can use Guerrero as a tune-up, Canelo can hopefully fight someone half-decent, and then the match gets made in September in theory.

Once again, Since when do you have to "deserve" a fight with Floyd? What did the majority of Floyd's opponents do to "deserve" a fight with him? Floyd says its all about the money and how this is "prizefighting" right? Well the bigger prize comes with the bigger fight against Canelo.

Canelo and Guerrero are both cherrypicks imho. However, Guerrero traveled up two weight classes and beat two WWs, therefore earning a shot to be considered as an opponent. Is Guerrero a legacy fight for Mayweather? absolutely not. Neither is Canelo, but they'll probably pose a decent obstacle for Floyd. I'm not mad at either match-up should it happen, as long as others analyze them for what they actually are.

guerrero is not an elite fighter. never was, never will be.

the fight vs berto showed how limited a fighter guerrero is.

at least with canelo, the size, power, strength, and youth are all advantages for canelo.

What freaking advantage does guerrero have with floyd?


didnt have a high opinion on guerrero BEFORE the berto fight. After the berto fight, it is even lower.
