Floyd Mayweather Jr has promised fans they will see his best when he returns to the ring to fight Robert Guerrero on May 4.

The 'Pretty Boy' hasn't fought since his unanimous points decision victory over Miguel Cotto in May 2012, the American fighter having been forced to spend some time away from the ring since then.

Floyd Mayweather has won 23 of his 43 bouts via knockout.

His opponent in his return fight had been shrouded in mystery, with a clash with Devon Alexander mooted, along with a long awaited showdown against Manny Pacquiao.

However, in the end Mayweather opted for Guerrero, who despite winning world titles at multiple weight is relative unknown and only had two fights last year.

The reigning WBC welterweight champion does have an impressive record though having won 31 of his 33 fights, 18 via knockout, with just one loss blotting his career.

Mayweather is eager to get the fans off their seats against 'The Ghost' and has hinted his ready to throw caution to the wind, much like he did at times during his last bout with Cotto.

Mayweather is 1/8 to defeat Guerrero - who is 11/2 for the win - and has told fans to tune in for something special next month in Las Vegas.

"Robert Guerrero is a tough fighter, a solid, busy fighter. He only has one loss, a champion in multiple weight classes. Let's see what he can do in there. I am sure he is going to be able to make adjustments in that squared circle just like I can, so we will have to see what happens on May 4th.

"We will have to see how the fight plays out. I just want the fans to tune in. It's going to be an action-packed fight on May 4th. I am willing to do whatever it takes to get the victory. If I have to mix it up or box. I am going to bring it."

Mayweather went on to say that he was working as hard as ever to make sure he remains undefeated, with a win against Guerrero set to stretch his record to 44-0.
