Guerrero is definitely a very skilled fighter (although we didn't see too much of that tonight.) And he's got an amazing chin. But what I don't get is how you can come up from lightweight to welterweight and be able to bully guys like Berto around without some help. You've basically got to assume that everybody at the top level in boxing is taking something until it's proved otherwise. Other than Donaire, who is the only top fighter to agree to year-round random testing I wouldn't put any money on any of these guys being clean.

Guerrero is 29 and all of a sudden he can jump two weight classes and dominate big welters. I aint buying it.

Agreed on the ref's performance though. I'm just wondering what the **** was more important on his mind than refereeing this fight. He was totally spaced out during much of the cling, grabbing and rabbit punching

You mean it would have been sweet for Canelo's resume. Cotto took a lot a headshots during his prime and it's caught up with him. Canelo would have toyed with him in the mid to late rounds.

Don't be surprised if golden boy still goes ahead with that. Its still a big money fight and you know GBP wants to cash in.

Maybe this makes way for a Canelo-Mayweather

Floyd will probably fight Guerrero or Canelo.
Pac's done, who cares.
JMM, maybe Tim Bradley? Love to see that.

jmm/pacquiao 5 sounds like its kind of possible...
if not that, pacquiao wont retire, maybe he'll take a step back in competition.

fun fight would be pacquiao vs amir khan. khan didnt say the nicest of things about roach when he left him. a nice little grudge/blood fight would be nice.

As for JMM... before the fight, Rios was saying that Arum promised him the marquez/pacquiao winner.
so we'll see....


so is it safe to say the top 3 pound for pound rankings is:

1) floyd
2) ward
3) martinez

??

id say so..
4. Bradley
5. Broner

Manny would tool Khan. He has no chin. It'd probably be an early round knockout.
