No doubt. Canelo has the power to take it to Floyd, I'm just worried that he'll gas out in the later rounds. But if there's ANYONE who will give Mayweather the fight of his career, it's Canelo imo.

cotto was able to do this, to some degree...or just maybe floyd didn't stick with his predictable game plan that night. i thought i remembered floyd saying, "i wanna give the fans fights they wanna see from now on...", but he played it VERY safe with guerrero, imo. i see him doing the same exact thing with canelo. although canelo didn't look his best against trout, IF he brings his "A" game against floyd, steps up his defense and does not gas out in the later rounds, then he's got a good shot.

He has a decent shot. The odds are shortening up a bit. Floyd will be a 5-2 or 2-1 favorite by fight time.....probably.

Outside of a possible fight with Pacman, this will be the best odds we've seen in a while if you wanna back Money.

Golovkin versus Floyd at a 159 1/2 pound catchweight interest me.


Has Floyd ever fought any higher then 147???? 159 will NEVER HAPPEN!! Adrien Broner fight has me interested.

I was being facetious, because that matchup would never happen and probably result in a Mayweather loss. Golovkin is a hard hitting bad dude and despite his Russian roots (Kazakhstan) he is being embraced by HBO.

He fights Matthew Macklin in 2 weeks.

Floyd would never fight Broner. Floyd is "tight" with Broner all of a sudden.

like i said before, floyd never really fights someone with a similar skill set, so no, this does not surprise me at all.

True, but I think floyd would get 9-2 odds now vs Manny, who has been exposed.

Getting KOed like that really changes everything. It's like with Chad Dawson-when Ward beat him (his 168 excuses aside) up it didn't look nearly as bad when Adonis sent him into dreamland. How many top fighters fully recover from a brutal knockout?

That being said Manny's fan betting base wouldn't let it get to 3-1.
