Mayweather, who recently announced a unique, groundbreaking revenue-sharing arrangement with Showtime Networks Inc. and its parent company, CBS Corporation, is excited to get back to business in his ring return against Guerrero. 

 

"My new deal with Showtime and its parent CBS is very thrilling for me and a motivation to fight more often starting with my May 4 fight against Robert Guerrero," said Mayweather.  "I know Guerrero has been campaigning to fight me for quite a while now and I am happy to give him his opportunity.  His name is mentioned among the other great champions in boxing today and that means he has proven himself in the ring. He will now have to prove himself against me, which is a whole other story.  I’m excited for the challenge and fully expect a good, tough fight from him.  However, I do expect the same outcome for him as all of the others who have challenged me before...42 have tried, 42 have failed.  He will be number 43." 

 

Guerrero, coming off of a win against Andre Berto on November 24, 2012, further entrenching himself as a formidable and tested world champion, has called out Mayweather for over two years.  He will now have the opportunity to dethrone the undefeated pound for pound king when they meet May 4.

 

"First, I want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the opportunities he has blessed me and my family with, said Guerrero.  "All of the trials and tribulations that have occurred in my life have made me a better person as well as a better fighter and the results are undeniable.  Nothing has ever come easy to me and that mental fortitude has prepared me to defeat the one fighter everyone perceives to be the pound for pound king in Floyd Mayweather.  When we lock eyes across the ring on fight night he’s going to feel the presence of a man preordained for greatness.  The time is now to show the world why I’m destined to dethrone Floyd and when I come out victorious on May 4th, the whole world will know I’m a man who willed his way to victory by putting God first in his life."
