Mayweather wins after a year away

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Floyd Mayweather Jr. fought as if he had never left the ring, coming back from a year's absence Saturday night to win a unanimous 12-round decision over Robert Guerrero in their welterweight title fight.

Mayweather was masterful at times, landing thudding right hands and bloodying Guerrero's face in a performance that mimicked some of his best fights. Mayweather hurt Guerrero on several occasions, including a series of right hands near the end of the eighth round that buckled Guerrero's knees.

All three judges scored the bout 117-111 in Mayweather's favor. The Associated Press had Mayweather winning 119-109

Mayweather remained unbeaten in 44 fights, while handing Guerrero only his second loss as a pro.
