Pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. will defend his WBC welterweight title against Robert Guerrero on May 4, Mayweather announced on Tuesday. The fight will be televised on Showtime Pay Per View.

Mayweather’s deal with Showtime is a comprehensive, groundbreaking agreement that requires Showtime to collaborate with parent company CBS to promote Mayweather’s fights. The agreement provides opportunities for Mayweather to fight as many as six times over the next 30 months.

The deal with Showtime ends a 23-fight run for Mayweather fighting on HBO.

    Where did he get this opponent? I never heard of this guerrero. Seems like a lame fight, waste of money...

    I know the casual fan might not be aware, but this is a very risky fight.  guerrero is not a pushover by any stretch.   much props to mayweather, he's slowing down and coming off a long lay off, should be exciting.

    yeah and now that he is with showtime, well kiss any chance of him fighting the one person that everyone wants to see him fight, as at least before there was a chance he would fight pacquio as they were both under the HBO umbrella, now forget about as HBO and Showtime as much as CBS Sports Radio and Fox Sports Radio
