As much as I like Floyd, he really should fight a Canelo, a Garcia, a Martinez, or even a Keith Thurman.
His new contract dictates that he fights at minimum, 6 times in 30 months. As much as he's taken time off in the past 5 years, I found that hard to believe, but if he actually lives up to it, I think he'll have to fight a good number of those guys you mentioned.

For the record, I also think Robert will be a tougher fight for Floyd than Garcia, at least right now.

Because I don't play for your ******* approval. I play for my own love and enjoyment of the game. And to win. That's what I play for."
