Robert Garcia: Floyd Should Tab Canelo, Guerrero Tougher

By Peter Sciretta

Robert Garcia agrees with veteran trainer Kenny Adams - former champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero would be a tougher opponent than Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, in terms of styles, for WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. With no Manny Pacquiao fight in sight, Mayweather is looking for a new challenge on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Alvarez, according to most, is the leading candidate to get the fight. Guerrero, after weeks of campaigning, has been ruled out.

BoxingScene.com:  Robert how does a fight with Mayweather and Robert Guerrero or Canelo play out, and who do you think he will pick?

Robert Garcia:  I honestly  I think if it’s between those two, Mayweather will pick Canelo because Floyd will perform better against Canelo who will stay right there in front of him.  It will be a perfect fight for Mayweather to look good.  Guerrero will be tougher because he’s a left hander and he’s a fighter that won’t stay there in front of him.  Also, Guerrero is going to be smarter in the ring.  So if I had to choose between those two I think Mayweather is going to pick Canelo.

BoxingScene.com: So what you’re saying, Canelo is an easier fight for Mayweather than Guerrero? 

Robert Garcia:  Yes, I would say so, because stylistically Guerrero gives him more problems.

As stated earlier, because of his size and power, Canelo is a better choice. However there's nothing I've seen from Canelo or Guerro that will be enough to beat Floyd

Floyd won't risk a Guerro fight because if he gets beat by a light wieght he would be made to look like the fraud he is

Guerrero reminds me of a young Floyd Mayweather, but like most fighters that reach a certain status "who is this young guy calling me out talking about he'll whip me if i fight him?" Guerrero not only sounds like a…
