Floyd Mayweather will fight Robert Guerrero when he ends his 12-month absence from the ring in Las Vegas on May 4.

Robert Guerrero has been revealed as Floyd Mayweather's opponent for the American's return to the ring on May 4.

Mayweather, who served a two-month prison sentence in 2012, has not fought since beating Miguel Cotto for the WBA light-middleweight title almost a year ago.

The bout will take place in Las Vegas and marks the first of a six-fight broadcast deal secured by CBS and Showtime PPV.

Guerrero has a professional record of 31-1-1 and has recently stepped up two weight classes in an attempt to box with the sport's biggest names.

Devon Alexander had been touted as a possible opponent for Mayweather, but he instead looks poised to face impressive Briton Kell Brook.
