Robert Guerrero was brutalized by Floyd Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. hurt his right hand while battering an outclassed Robert Guerrero for 36 minutes on Saturday night in “Sin City.”

Fortunately, although noticeably swollen and discolored, the 36-year-old Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) didn’t severely damage his power fist and still intends to scrap on September 14.

Dismissing concerns of aging, inactivity and a stint behind bars, Mayweather used an impenetrable defense to keep the 30-year-old Guerrero (31-2-1-2, 18 KOs) off balance and stinging jabs and rights to bloody the poor sap’s mug.

A five-division, eight-belt winner who was named The Ring “Fighter of the Year” in 1998 and 2007, Mayweather plans to enter the squared circle five more times over the next 30 months as part of a deal with Showtime.

Continuing to defy Father Time with an incredible work ethic, the reigning pound-for-pound king seems destined to equal Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 mark and retire as an unbeaten titlist.
