The 50-0 boxing legend has been taking part in exhibition clashes since his last professional victory over Conor McGregor back in 2017. 'Money' was originally meant to face English Muay Thai fighter Liam ‘The Hitman’ Harrison, however the 37-year-old was forced to pull out with a knee injury and Chalmers didn't hesitate to come in as the replacement.

Since ending his professional career in boxing back in 2017 with a TKO win over Irishman McGregor, Mayweather has enjoyed several exhibition clashes. The 45-year-old has fought in five since beating the former UFC champion in Las Vegas; kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, boxer and former sparring partner Don Moore, YouTuber Logan Paul, MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura and, most recently, Deji Olatunji, brother of KSI. 

What have both fighters said?

Mayweather said: “I was originally supposed to face a different opponent, but injuries happen and I’m glad that Aaron Chalmers could step up so that we could give the fans what they want.

“The fans in the UK have always been great to me and supported me throughout my career, so an event like this has been a long time coming.

“I’m excited to add more history to the O2 Arena in London.”

Chalmers added: “I’ve been training with Adam Booth in the boxing gym and I’m eager to make a name for myself in the boxing world.

“I jumped on this opportunity immediately.

“It’s an honour to share the ring with one of the greatest fighters of all time and I’m definitely going to take advantage of it.”
