Floyd Mayweather’s latest exhibition fight will be the first for the UK boxing icon as he takes on ‘The Money’ Aaron Chalmers on Saturday.
Mayweather, who will turn 46 on Thursday, retired from professional fighting in 2017 after defeating mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor 50-0, but the American has since competed in a series of exhibition fights.
Last time, Mayweather stopped YouTuber Deji in the sixth round in November, and the next champion for the former multi-weight champion is Chalmers in London.
Chalmers is best known for starring in the reality series Newcastle Geordie beach, but the Briton continued to compete in MMA – where he has a record of 5-2 – and is 1-0 in professional boxing. Chalmers, 35, won his boxing debut on points in four rounds in June.
