Undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd "Money" Mayweather returns to network television this Saturday, April 27, when CBS broadcasts "MAYWEATHER" at 8PM ET/PT.  The special one-hour documentary will reveal the life story of the charismatic Mayweather and features appearances by a number of different celebrities. It also examines the hard-working, humble approach taken by four-division world champion Robert Guerrero, who has endured incredible challenges on the road to his May 4th clash with Mayweather.
