Floyd Mayweather v Aaron Chalmers: Fight date, ring walk time, how to watch & odds

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather will return to the ring on Saturday for his latest exhibition fight when he takes on reality TV star Aaron Chalmers at London's O2 Arena.

Since retiring from the professional ranks with a perfect 50-0 record in 2017, Mayweather has embarked on a high-profile exhibition career where he has beaten, amongst others, YouTuber Logan Paul and kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.

Next up for 'Money' will be a bout on British soil against Newcastle fighter Chalmers, who is best known for starring in reality show Geordie Shore but has since carved out a successful MMA career before making the move into boxing last year.

Chalmers will be stepping into the ring for just the second time as a boxer and he has also received a late call up for the bout after Mayweather's original opponent, English Muay Thai fighter Liam Harrison, was forced to pull out due to a knee injury.

Mayweather is without doubt one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters of all time, as he retired from professional boxing in 2017 with a perfect 50-0 record and having won 15 world championships across five different weight classes.

Among the big names that Mayweather has beaten are Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Saul Canelo Alvarez and Manny Pacquiao, while his last professional bout saw him stop MMA star Conor McGregor in 10 rounds.

That stoppage victory over McGregor in August 2017 meant Mayweather ended his professional career with 27 knockout successes from his 50 fights.
