Al Bello/Getty Images(LAS VEGAS) — Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Robert Guerrero with a unanimous 12-round decision Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden arena in Las Vegas to retain his WBC welterweight championship. All three judges scored the fight 117-111.

In the first of a six-fight deal with Showtime, the 36-year-old Mayweather outpunched Guerrero, 195 to 113. The eight-time world champion methodically went after Guerrero, landing punches then quickly moving out of the way.

“It’s been a rollercoaster ride,” Mayweather said after the bout. “For 17 years to be at the top, I’m blessed. Without the fans and the media, I wouldn’t be where I am at, I’m thankful. I’m going to continue to work hard. I got five more bouts and then I call it quits.”

With the victory, Mayweather improves to 44-0 while Guerrero falls to 31-2-1.
