Floyd Mayweather Announces New Opponent for London Boxing Exhibition
Aaron “The Joker” Chalmers replaces Liam Harrison as Floyd Mayweather’s next opponent.
Liam Harrison pulled out of his boxing exhibition only hours after the fight was announced - but “Money” Mayweather has a new opponent locked up. He’ll now box Aaron “The Joker” Chalmers on February 25th from the O2 Arena in London, England.
Chalmers is a former Bellator lightweight who retired in 2021. He’ll be the fourth MMA fighter to box against Floyd - following Conor McGregor in 2016, Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018, and Mikuru Asakura last September.
Mayweather has been perfect in his exhibitions, having picked-apart YouTuber Deji in his last match. Despite retiring from pro boxing in 2017, “Money” has kept the money flowing by staying active with exhibitions - remaining perfect through 5 bouts.
