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.
