So, the rumor was true Floyd Mayweather picks Robert Guerrero as his official opponent for his May 4th return bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. And according to the recent news online that it will not air on HBO this time. All of the fights of Mayweather are aired in HBO which has been his home for the last 16 years.
Mayweather and HBO’s partnership produced hundreds of millions of dollars in pay-per-view generated income during that time period. Mayweather Jr. inked a record breaking six-fight career deal with CBS/Showtime beginning with his May 4th bout with Guerrero.
The deal will enable him to fight exclusively for the network until mid-2016, meaning that he will fight six times in a 30-month period.
The unbeaten Floyd Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs) only fought twice in the last two years, a knockout win against former WBC welterweight champ, Victor Ortiz in 2011 and a Unanimous Decision win against WBA light middleweight champion, Miguel Cotto last May 5, 2012. This will be his first fight after serving two months in a federal prison for a domestic battery conviction last year.
Guerrero, 29, (31-1-1, 18 KOs) of Gilroy, California has long been positioning himself with a fight against the unbeaten Mayweather Jr. He moved up to the welterweight division (147 pounds) last year after previously campaigning in the super featherweight and lightweight divisions (130 and 135 pounds) in the previous three years. Guerrero’s last fight on Nov. 24, he earned a unanimous decision win after knocking Andre Berto down twice early and beating his eye to a pulp.
