Risky.

All it takes is for Floyd to get KO'd once and all of his marketability goes out the window.

Showtime isn't going to make Floyd fight any young lions anytime soon.

His first fight is against a young lion? WTF you talking about?

Floyd loses to Guerrero, Alvarez or whomever and the rematch would be huge.

Showtime doing good things...they stand to throw Jim Rome's ass out the corner, but I need better TV programming. Honestly, the boxing is secondary for me, because my wife and I subscribe to HBO because we garner most of our TV watching from HBO. True Blood, Game of Thrones, Veep, Maher, Girls and Boardwalk Empire. That's that type of programming that keeps us coming back. On regular TV, only Walking Dead keeps us glued.

Showtime needs to up its A-game. there was talk awhile back about them picking up the license to the comic "Chew"

That would be a hell of a start

I guess beating a ring rusted and overrated Andre Berto makes you a young lion.

3 fights ago he was a LW. Now people are calling him a young lion at WW?

Guerrero has mediocre power. The biggest name on his resume is Joel Casamayor.

Young? At 29, not really.

Lion? Not even close.

What else you gonna call him? A old, over the hill, past prime WW? Are you for real?

Please supply us with a list of 'young lions at WW' that Floyd should be fighting.

There are no young lions in the 147 division.

The 147 division is so weak that Floyd has to fight former LW's

There are young lions in JWW and JMW division.

Floyd only fights guys that will jump two divisions though.

Then how the phuck would Showtime "make Floyd fight any young lions anytime soon."

And that former LW is his phucking mandatory, genius.

Re: fights guys jumping two divisions, at least Floyd isn't getting turned into a stepped on fetal duck egg by them.

No Danny Garcia, No Lucas Matthysse, No Canelo, No Martirosyan any time soon.

Young lions within a 7lb division from Mayweather.

That mandatory stuff doesn't mean **** to a guy like Floyd. When you're the top guy in Boxing you can pick your fights at your own leisure.
