Floyd could be back in May



Floyd Mayweather is likely to fight fellow American Robert Guerrero on May 4.

The Los Angeles Times has reported that the undefeated Mayweather could return to the ring after a break of a year to take on Guerrero.

The card would also feature Mexico's undefeated Saul Alvarez, who many expect will face Mayweather later this year if both win in May.

Golden Boy Promotions chief executive Richard schaefer told the Times a deal could be set this week for WBC welterweight champion Mayweather into the fight.

Mayweather’s record is 43-0, with 26 knockouts and Guerrero’s 31-1-1, with 18 knockouts.

Alvarez, 41-0 with one drawn and 30 knockouts, is likely to defend his WBCouncil super-welterweight title against Austin Trout, Alfredo Angulo or James Kirkland.

Filipino star Nonito Donaire, promoted by Bob Arum, and Mexico's undefeated Abner Mares, who has signed with Golden Boy, are in talks for an April 13 super-bantamweight unification bout, according to the report.

Mares stands at 25-0, with one drawn and 13 knockouts, and Donaire is 31-1, with 20 knockouts.

Unbeaten American Tim Bradley is in talks to defend the WBO title he took from Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao last year, the Times said.

Undefeated Cuban Yuriorkis Gamboa is a likely opponent in a tournament to be held in suburban Los Angeles.
