Mayweather Jr. Shoots Down Canelo, Cotto and Guerrero

By Rick Reeno

During a media interview with BoxingScene.com and a select group of writers, WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. shot down the three rumored options for May 5th - WBA junior welterweight champion Miguel Cotto, WBC junior welterweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, and former champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero. Mayweather is scheduled to fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, on May 5th, and he made it clear that WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao is the only opponent on his mind.

"There are so many young and strong champions out there, that I don't really know at this particular time [who I'll fight outside of Pacquiao]. There have been a few names thrown out there. But as far as the guy they're saying, "The Ghost" - absolutely not. I'm not going to give the fans nothing like that. I don't even know who this guy, but I wish him the best," Mayweather said.

"I think Cotto is a very good matchup, but once again, if I go against Cotto the fans and people will say that it's Pacquiao's leftovers. He's still a strong, solid champion in my eyes. When he fought Pacquiao, they fought at a catch-weight [of 145-pounds]. If we fight Cotto I would want him to be comfortable, where both guys are happy. I think Canelo would be a big fight, but I think he needs some more experience under his belt and then eventually we can make the fight happen down the line. Right now my main focus is Manny Pacquiao. Team Pacquaio, stop having your excuses. I have my guarantee, so let's make the fight happen. Every day I'm tweeting and tweeting and tweeting. Do I have to tweet again tonight? I'm basically chasing the guy."

Pacquiao will continue to duck the fight and hide behind Arum.

[QUOTE=Dr Rumack;12737999]Sergio is not a 'big middleweight'. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr is a big middleweight. And Canelo walks around above 170lbs. Is he too big for Floyd as well?[/QUOTE] Martinez is even bigger. And when I said above 170, that…

[QUOTE=Spoon23;12737993]He basically saying I'll fight Pacquiao for 100million and take all the ppv revenues, and he won't entertain fighting any other fighter you mentioned so that means I'm not fighting anymore He is talking all this B.S. to save face.…
