At one point I would have thought him beating Pac would have been a forgone conclusion but now I think it is a much better fight. I think even Khan has a pretty good shot of possibly beating him.

Nope, this is the step for the really big pay out.  Pac v. Floyd.

I doubt it, the politics and/or the fighter(s) misgivings are insurmountable.

Pac vs floyd should happen. For the sake of boxing. This 2 great boxer are aging.

If Floyd rematched Guerrero and Canelo, he'd probably win another 24 rounds.

I don't think it's as much about Floyd showing age as it is about Maidana being able to walk through shots. In the beginning of the Floyd/Hatton fight, Hatton was getting to Floyd somewhat.
  Hatton eventually succumbed to Floyd's clean shot, but Maidana was able to continue to come forward.
  Floyd vs Khan would be one-sided IMO.
  Floyd just dominated Canelo (who's 10x the boxer that Maidana is) so I'm pretty sure age didn't just slow Floyd down in 6-7 months all of a sudden.
  Maidana's reckless rough house style was just bad for Floyd.

You may be right, but the love of money has a powerful effect on many people.

Maidana is one tough dude and a much under-appreciated tactician given his "reckless style".  He is fun to watch...  Bad match up for Floyd and most people.  If Floyd has slowed down, Maidana would have found a home for more of his punches.  Wish he had gone to the body more.

it wouldnt surprise me if floyd is trying to be more exciting and looking vulnerable on purpose these days.  he knows people would love to see him lose and ppvs generally dont do well (relatively speaking of course) when the odds are 14 to 1 for one guy.  having said that, he is an iota slower but there is no one out there that can take advantage of that at welter. i kinda wish rigo was bigger, for all of floyds talent this guy may even be better.
