May 4, 2013; Las Vegas, NV, USA; Floyd Mayweather holds his championship belt after his WBC Welterweight title fight defeating Robert Guerrero at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Mandatory Credit: Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY SportsFloyd Mayweather, Jr. went back to his roots, bringing back his father to help him work on his defense, and it paid off as he won a unanimous decision over Robert Guerrero in his first fight in nearly a year.

Mayweather Jr., who has had a rocky relationship with his father, admitted that Floyd Mayweather, Sr. was instrumental in the win:

"I needed my father tonight. My defense was on point and he told me to stick with my defense and that the less you get hit the longer you last."

Floyd Sr. had been absent in his son's corner for 13 years before this bout.

Guerrero took Mayweather the distance, but all three judges had Mayweather winning the fight 117-111.

It's definitely time to start discussing Mayweather's place among the all-time greats. Personally, I would have liked to have seen him fight Manny Pacquiao before Manny started losing, but it's still getting to the point where Floyd really has nothing else to prove. Canelo Alvarez seems to be the next big name in line, but there really doesn't seem to be anyone even remotely near Mayweather's weight class who can compete with him.

He claims that he's the best ever, but where do you think Floyd Mayweather ranks among boxing's all-time greats?
