As the days go by, we continue to wait for word on Floyd Mayweather’s next ring opponent.

At the moment there seems to be a very strong chance that Mayweather will end up facing off with British star Amir Khan on May 3 from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

And while Khan surely serves as one of the biggest names for Mayweather at the moment, North Philadelphia’s Naazim Richardson has two other prizefighters in mind who could possibly trouble, and maybe even defeat Mayweather.

“Tim [Bradley] and Danny Garcia are capable of beating anybody in boxing,” The Zen-like trainer told me recently when discussing the WBO welterweight titlist and the WBA/WBC junior welterweight champion.

“Tim and Danny Garcia are young versions of a Bernard Hopkins,” Richardson added. “You can never gauge them. You can’t watch film on them. You can’t anticipate with them. Because they are super over-achievers. What Bernard Hopkins was. What Joe Frazier was.”

And while Richardson isn’t bold enough to side with either man against Mayweather, he wouldn’t be stunned if either pulled an upset.

“If Tim Bradley or Danny Garcia were to beat Floyd Mayweather I would not be shocked,” Richardson stated. “Would you bet against Floyd? F*** no. The only person you’re supposed to bet against Floyd with is Wladimir Klitschko on a good day.”

It’s obvious in speaking with Richardson just how much respect he has towards the Grand Rapids native, however.

“Floyd is one of them fighters now who you aren’t supposed to bet against until you see him lose,” Richardson explained. “He’s that special of a kid. But Tim or Danny getting past him would not shock me at all.”

neither are capable of doing a damn thing to Floyd both are too hittable without enough speed or power to balance it you gotta get to Floyd a lot or crack him hard to have a chance Bradley wouldn't get inside enough to let his hands go and his boxing skills are overrated as fuck Garcia is a ...

[QUOTE=Mr. Philadel]I agree with that....when Zab let his hands go he found success but it was already round 10....if Floyd came down and felt like claiming his third lineal title in 3 different weight classes which would make him THEE REIGNING CHAMP from 140-154.....Swift would give him a descen...

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER]I'm a Danny Garcia fan and Timothy Bradley is a tough fighter but neither beats Floyd. I don't see anyone beating Mayweather from 147 to 154. Perhaps Lara could give him a go because of his size and being a boxer but I still favor Floyd. The only fighter/boxer I saw that could ...

There's a rumor going on around the Pacquiao/Mayweather is a done deal for September 2014. Not sure how true it is but heard about it.
