I've speculated about potential opponents for Mayweather following his master-class against Canelo Alvarez, and while there are only one or two "obvious" names, there's definitely a crop of solid options in and around the Welterweight division. This includes, most notably, Danny Garcia, as well as the winner of the Devon Alexander vs. Amir Khan clash.
Then, there are a bunch of "ifs", as in -- Timothy Bradley if he defeats Juan Manuel Marquez, Marcos Maidana if he defeats Adrien Broner, Keith Thurman, if he defeats Robert Guerrero.
