Floyd Mayweather Readying For Another Exhibition
Floyd Mayweather is going to be facing UK boxer Aaron Chalmers on Saturday, February 25. It will be the legendary 50-0 American boxer’s first UK-based fight ever. The fight will be taking place at the O2 Arena in London. The specific time has not yet been released but the anticipated time is around 10.30 pm. It’s going to be one of the biggest boxing spectacles of the first half of the year.
Chalmers enters the ring as a substitute for the English Muay Thai fighter Liam Harrison. Harrison had to pull out because of an injured knee shortly after the fight had been announced.

It’s going to be an exciting fight between two great fighters even though Mayweather is a very clear favorite.

Before this, he was known for the reality tv series Geordie Shore season eight in 2014. After Geordie Shore, he also participated in other reality shows such as Ex on the Beach.
