FLOYD MAYWEATHER Jr. will fight Robert Guerrero on May 4, and he's changing television networks to do it. The biggest star in boxing dropped a surprise Tuesday while announcing his long-rumored next bout: After several years on HBO, Mayweather is moving to Showtime with a lucrative multifight deal. Mayweather's move is a coup for Showtime, the CBS-owned network that has always trailed behind HBO in boxing prominence. Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs) is the sport's biggest moneymaker, and his new revenue-sharing deal with Showtime could include up to six pay-per-view fights over 30 months.

As his Tuesday afternoon media session came to an end, Mike Jones didn't seem to care very much about the location of his next fight. And he has little reason to worry, anyway. After much speculation, Antonio Margarito was granted a boxing license on Tuesday evening by the New York State Athletic Commision. Therefore, Margarito's fight with Miguel Cotto will remain at Madison Square Garden. As will Jones' fight with Sebastian Lujan. The Philadelphia welterweight will face Argentina's Lujan on the undercard of the Dec. 3 Margarito-Cotto pay-per-view event.

NEW YORK - Fueled by an exuberant crowd, Miguel Cotto targeted the eye. And after Cotto unloaded so many punishing uppercuts and head shots to Antonio Margarito, the Mexican star's right eye was sealed shut. A crowd of 21,239 at Madison Square Garden gasped - then roared for Cotto to continue - as the grisly scene flashed on the big screen. Cotto finished the job in front of his fellow flag-waving Puerto Ricans and retained his title, battering Margarito over nine lopsided rounds before winning a TKO decision before they came out for the 10th late Saturday night.

LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather Jr. finally found himself in a real fight, complete with a bloody nose and an opponent, in Miguel Cotto, who was never going to quit. As usual, he found a way to win. Mayweather used his speed and accuracy Saturday night to take a unanimous decision over a game Cotto in a bruising bout to win a piece of the 154-pound title. But it wasn't easy, as Cotto landed some hard punches and kept attacking all the way to the final bell. "You're a hell of a champion," Mayweather told Cotto in the ring afterward.

LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather Jr., the biggest draw in boxing, looked up from his smartphone, smiled, and shook his head. The undefeated five-division world champion had spent most of a news conference Wednesday with his eyes on the screen and his fingers twiddling. Richard Schaefer, the CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, was raving about Mayweather's light-middleweight title defense on Saturday against Canelo Alvarez. It's the biggest in boxing history, he said, and pay-per-view records will fall.

LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been doing this all his life, since he was a scrawny kid seeking solace in the gym. The ring is his comfort zone, and he'll enter it Saturday for the 43d time as a pro, certain as ever that when the night is through he'll not only be a lot richer but still unbeaten. Miguel Cotto is equally certain that he can be the first one to conquer Mayweather. "I don't need anyone else giving me a chance," Cotto said. "If I can trust in myself, I don't need anyone else believing in me. " Not many are, especially the oddsmakers who make Mayweather a 6-1 favorite in Saturday night's fight.

WITH THE obvious exception of college football and its computerized BCS shenanigans, sports championships are determined solely by merit. There are established formulas to crown the winners of the World Series, Super Bowl, NBA Finals, Stanley Cup playoffs and Final Four. A favorite might be upset somewhere along the way, but a really good team can't duck a particularly difficult opponent simply because its decision-makers don't like the way the respective rosters match up. Professional boxing, of course, is a different animal.
