Floyd Mayweather likely to face Robert Guerrero on May 4th

Jeff Bottari

Boxing Scene is reporting that superstar boxer Floyd Mayweather is "very close" to a deal to face Robert Guerrero on May 4th.

With Manny Pacquiao getting KO'd by Juan Manuel Marquez there's no more talk of a potential Pacquiao superfight against Floyd Mayweather. But life and the boxing business goes on and Boxing Scene is reporting that a deal is close for a May 4th Mayweather bout with Robert Guererro.

Bad Left Hook has more background on Guererro:

Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KO) angled for the Mayweather fight last May, but was shrugged off as a pretender who didn't deserve the bout. At the time, "The Ghost" had never fought over a 138-pound catchweight, and was coming off of a lengthy stint on the shelf due to injury.

Guerrero, who will turn 30 in March, returned to the ring in July and debuted at welterweight with a win over rugged Selcuk Aydin, which he followed with an even more impressive victory over Andre Berto on November 24. After both bouts, he called out Mayweather, with that fight sounding more viable than it had the first time around.

Mayweather fought Miguel Cotto in May and has been doing a jail term for domestic violence. He'll be returning to the Welterweight (147lbs) division to face Guererro.
