Floyd Mayweather’s latest exhibition bout will be the boxing icon’s first ever in the UK, as “Money” takes on Aaron Chalmers on Saturday.
Mayweather, who turns 46 on Thursday, retired as a professional in 2017 after beating mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor to go 50-0, but the American has since competed in a series of exhibition fights.
Last time out, Mayweather stopped YouTuber Deji in the sixth round in November, and next up for the former multi-weight champion is Chalmers in London.
Chalmers is best known for starring on Newcastle-based reality television show Geordie Shore, but the Briton went on to compete in MMA – compiling a 5-2 record – and is 1-0 in pro boxing. Chalmers, 35, won his boxing debut on points over four rounds in June.
Here’s all you need to know.
