In his latest exhibition, Floyd Mayweather is set to take on Geordie Shore’s Aaron Chalmers, and we have all the details, including the UK start time.
Throughout his legendary career, ‘TBE’ claimed victories over icons like Manny Pacquiao, Canelo Alvarez and even Britain’s own Ricky Hatton, but now he’s traded the serious stuff for quick cash grabs. And while he’s excited fans with the prospect of his first outing in the UK, the PPV price has rendered the public furious.
In order to sell these ‘circus-like’ events, Mayweather needs a dance partner, and he’s found the man for the job, in the form of one reality TV’s most colourful characters. Renowned for his ladies man persona, as exhibited on nights out on the Toon with his old love interest, Marnie Simpson, Chalmers is undoubtedly used to a glamourous lifestyle. But make no bones about it, the man can fight.
Utilising his incredible one-punch KO power, he amassed an impressive 5-2 record in MMA before transitioning to the world of boxing.
With striking always at the forefront of his game, the move made sense, and on June 17, he picked up his first victory. But while he has the hands to dispose of any obnoxious joker who aggravates him in Tiger Tiger, it’s an entirely different kettle of fish when you set foot in the ring with one of the greatest athletes of all time.
So while this match-up is far from a classic, it certainly presents an element of intrigue. So we’re bringing you everything you need to know ahead of the clash at the O2 Arena in London.

How to watch Floyd Mayweather vs Aaron Chalmers
When Tyson Fury fought Derek Chisora on BT Sport Box Office for £27.99, the fans were left raging. They couldn’t believe that the UK PPV record had been smashed for what was on paper and, in reality, a mismatch.
Failing to read the room, Mayweather has pushed the boat out even further, charging a whopping £32. However, if you pre-order, you can watch the action for £24. But regardless, the price will likely put the bulk of punters off.
