Mayweather, 36, will make his first-ever appearance on Showtime Pay Per View against Guerrero. It will also be his first fight under an agreement with Showtime that could have the five-division titleholder fighting "six times over a period of 30 months."
Owner of a 15-bout winning streak that includes nine knockouts, Guerrero scored two knockdowns during November's unanimous decision over two-time 147-pound titleholder Andre Berto in his last fight.
In addition, Detroit prospect J'Leon Love (15-0, 8 KOs), who is coming off last month's unanimous decision over Chicago's Derek Findley, will face former junior middleweight Gabriel Rosado (21-6, 13 KOs).
