Floyd Mayweather is about to make his UK debut when he takes on Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers in a boxing show tonight.
Mayweather, who had a professional record of 50-0, was supposed to fight British kickboxing star Liam Harrison for the event, but the 37-year-old had to pull out due to injury.
Since retiring from professional boxing in 2017, Mayweather has participated in several exhibitions.
‘Money’ last fought in November when he defeated YouTube star KSI’s brother Deji Olatunji via TKO in the sixth round.
But while his opponent is known as a Geordie Shore star, he’s not new to the fighting game. Chalmers has seven professional MMA fights to his credit – with his last fight coming in 2020.
