Pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. will defend his WBC welterweight title against Robert Guerrero on May 4, Mayweather announced on Tuesday. The fight will be televised on Showtime Pay Per View.

Mayweather’s deal with Showtime is a comprehensive, groundbreaking agreement that requires Showtime to collaborate with parent company CBS to promote Mayweather’s fights. The agreement provides opportunities for Mayweather to fight as many as six times over the next 30 months.

The deal with Showtime ends a 23-fight run for Mayweather fighting on HBO.
