Floyd Mayweather vs Aaron Chalmers fight date, UK time, undercard and stream
Floyd Mayweather will take on short-notice replacement Aaron Chalmers in his latest exhibition set for the UK.
The boxing legend has been fighting in a series of exhibitions and will fight on domestic shores for the first time against Geordie Shore star Chalmers. The Newcastle native has fought once as a professional in the boxing ring, but has an extensive background in MMA and will no doubt be looking to show off his credentials on the big stage.
It will be the latest of Mayweather's money-spinning outings having already fought Japanese pair Tenshin Nasukawa and Mikuru Asakura, Logan Paul, Deji and former sparring partner Don Moore. Providing he gets through again unscathed, it will likely be a busy year for 'Money' who will likely continue with further contests in a global tour.
Here is all you need to know ahead of Mayweather's latest exhibition:
Mayweather's latest exhibition contest with Chalmers will take place on Saturday November 25 at London's iconic O2 arena. Chalmers will likely be roared on by a home crowd as he looks to make a statement and provide a platform to return to the domestic scene as a professional.
The boxing legend was given a black eye in a lucrative set of rounds with influencer Deji last time out but is being selective with his opponents to reduce his risk of damage. Mayweather hasn't fought as a professional since 2017 when he ousted Conor McGregor to move to 50 professional wins without defeat.
What time will Floyd Mayweather v Aaron Chalmers start in the UK?
Fans who are keen to catch Mayweather's debut in the UK will be pleased to know that the event will likely start at a fan-friendly time for domestic viewers. It remains to be seen if the main-event start time could be brought forward or delayed to allow no clash with Jake Paul's potential fight with Tommy Fury which is pencilled in for the same day pending confirmation.
Viewers can expect the event to commence around 7-7:30pm in the UK with an undercard of influencers, before the main event ring walks will likely begin at around 10pm. In customary fashion, the main event will likely proceed at around 10:15pm once the fighters have made their way to the ring and are ready to touch gloves.
How to watch Floyd Mayweather vs Aaron Chalmers via TV and live stream
Official broadcasters of the exhibition event are yet to be confirmed but will likely be announced in due course.
A full undercard preceding the main event has yet to be announced with further details expected to follow in due course.
Many influencers who have traditionally featured on Mayweather's card may well be otherwise engaged in Saudi Arabia to feature on the Paul v Fury bill. However the likes of Anthony Taylor and Jack Fincham could be available to make their next step on a Mayweather card having featured on his previous show with Deji.
