Golden Boy just set aside the Barclays Se 28 for a Miguel Cotto event.

So looks like Cotta/Canelo is off ... hey are saying Cotto will possibly fight the winner of Smith/Molina for the IBF strap. Canelo is looking at the winner of Lara/Angula. So, looks like Mayweather/Alexander it is ... Maybe a double card Mayweather and Canelo.

I don't think anyone at 168 has anything for froch other than ward(who is much closer to being number 1 p4p than I think most realize)

I very seriously doubt that mayweather fights alexander in September:

1. Nobody in the world wants to see that fight

2. It makes a lot more sense to fight a Mexican on that date

3. The guerrero promotion sucked...and the numbers weren't what they hoped for...so its time to make a splash

My prediction is mayweather-canelo or mayweather pulls out of that date all together.

Nobody wanted to see Mayweather-Guerrero either yet it happened.

I think Floyd will fight Devon or Amir.

top rank and golden boy

if we are going to strictly go golden boy/showtime.. i'd prefer in order: canelo, matthysse/garcia, heck even amir khan. i don't like the way alexander fights top class opponents. i want alexander to dominate a legit contender again before fighting mayweather.

i hope they match up keith thurman against one of the big names this year, i think he's ready. or rather, i wanna see what he's really made of

oh i almost forgot about maidana... but he'd make floyd the least amount of money. those 3 have at least some sort of name recognition

Canelo no longer wants to fight on Mayweather under cards. Can't blame him, he can headline his own show.

But why not Berto vs Mayweather? I mean if Robert and Victor got a Mayweather shot from beating Berto, why not give him a shot if he beats Soto Karass?

But I'm sure showtime wants Mayweather to make a splash now...lets be honest, the Mayweather-Guerrero promotion was horrible...the fight didn't even sell out the MGM and the ppv numbers were disappointing, no matter what showtime claims publicly.

If the fight is in september it won't be amir because of the ramadan thing.

A fight with Devon Alexander on Mexican Independence weekend will be a boring event that people will not want to pay for.

If Floyd fights Alexander in a year or 2 after Alexander has some better wins that involve some kind of excitement, then maybe it will be better..but not now.

If the next Floyd fight is really in September (which I have my doubts about), Canelo is the option.

Completely forgot about the whole Mexican Independence Day thing. It would be pretty silly not to capitalize on that weekend and have 2 Americans fighting on that day instead.

So going off that, it's either Canelo or he is not fighting that day. Or I can see Garcia skipping Lucas and going straight to Floyd.
