Regardless, I'd be more excited about Mayweather fighting GGG than any potential fight I listed. Also, I think he'd win or it'd be close.

Were you one of the majority that said he was running scared of lucas ..we all know what happened there!
Garcia beat khan and matthysse and has shown he steps his game up for every big fight but he possibly overlooked herrera...but still won.
Did you think he beat Herrera? I legitimately didn't think he won that fight. Not a blow out, but I thought Herrera won.
Garcia did win those fights n beat harrera on paper, so, he has the record to warrant the fight. If you apply some analytical thinking and watch those fights you will see: 1) Khan was as much to blame for Garcia winning as Garcia was. 2) Regardless what it says on paper, Garcia was beaten by an inferior opponent but given a gift decision. 3) I don't think you could find two fighters more different than Mathysse and Floyd.
Add to all of that the fact that Garcia hasn't fought or beat ANYONE of note at 147, and you understand it is window dressing. Technically the guy earned his shot and is undefeated, but he stands zero chance of winning and many fans won't want to waste their money.
This last post is a perfect example. If GGG was a fighter like say, Terry Norris in his prime, a fast boxer who could punch hard, then I would agree that Floyd's current condition and pace would be too much of a detriment. Against GGG, however, you are about as opposite of correct as you can be. GGG is a very balanced fighter, but he is a stalker who walks you down and is noticeably slower than Floyd. I can see Floyd staying on the outside and pot shotting and jabbing his way to a decision, similar to his wins over Oscar and Baldy. Pretty much everything you say I disagree with...
For two fighters who really dont need each other I have never seen two that need each other more. It almost feels like a kind of boxing purgatory. Its odd because both of these guys will be remembered more for not fighting each other then their first ballet hall of fame ledgers.
I think Floyd wants that 50/0 more then anything past or present. I dont think the pundits talk about that factor enough. We should also remind ourselves of who Marciano fought for his 48th and 49th. A spent close to 200 fight Archie Moore and Don Cockell. He must be an institution because he lived well and half the planet barely had phone service. Floyds not obligated to go life and death real or perceived in every fight he makes.
Anyway, if this phantom fight ever takes places I'd bet my left nut that it would be his 50th should he stay undefeated. That is its only shot at happening imo.
