NEW YORK (AP) - A boxer who was arrested at a New York City airport on gun charges has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.

Robert Guerrero pleaded to the lesser charge in Queens on Tuesday. He was ordered to pay a $250 fine and complete 50 hours of community service.

Guerrero lives in Gilroy, Calif., and will be able to perform the community service in his home state.

Guerrero lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 4 in Las Vegas in a unanimous 12-round decision.

The 30-year-old fighter presented a locked gun box during check-in at John F. Kennedy International Airport on March 28. The box contained an unloaded .40-caliber handgun and three unloaded magazines. The gun was registered in California but was illegal in New York.

Guerrero says he never intended to violate New York law.
