Join Times boxing writer Lance Pugmire at 1 p.m. today as he looks back at the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Robert Guerrero fight. The live video chat will take place on this blog post.

Pugmire was in Vegas to cover the fight, writing:

"Boxing's top pound-for-pound fighter dominated his challenger Robert Guerrero on Saturday night, winning nine of 12 rounds on all three judges' scorecards to keep his World Boxing Council welterweight belt at MGM Grand.

"Defense, continue to box and if the knockout comes, take it," Mayweather (44-0) said in the ring after his brilliant showing. "I was looking for the knockout, could've had it, but hurt my right hand . . . somewhere in the middle rounds."

"Judges Julie Lederman, Jerry Roth and Duane Ford each scored the fight 117-111 for Mayweather.

"Guerrero (31-2-1) was left frustrated by the 36-year-old technician, finding his attempts to hold and punch Mayweather shortened by referee Robert Byrd and his effort to catch Mayweather thwarted by the champion's foot speed.

"He was barely sneaking by my punches," Guerrero said. "That's why he's the unbeaten champion."
