Ideal Opponents for Boxing's Top Stars Without a Next Fight

Let's face it...not everyone is Floyd Mayweather Jr. or Manny Pacquiao.

While those two boxing superstars have a bevy of silk-suited middlemen working 24/7 to keep the pipeline full of stars to shine opposite them on pay-per-view marquees, it's a little more difficult for the rest of the working stiffs who get paid slightly less to punch guys in the face for a living.

Sometimes, though they have staffs working on their behalf, too, they need a little help when it comes to suggesting which foes might make the most sense in terms of financial windfall, professional development or just plain convenience.

We've done the matchmaking bidding for six of the sport's biggest stars who aren't named Floyd or Manny, pairing them with foils who'd bring cash, titles or buzz in the short-term as they continue to step incrementally higher toward the penthouses occupied by the chosen few.

Take a look and feel free to chime in with suggestions of your own.
