The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Boxing Exhibition Tour™ returns to the ring for another “fight” this weekend, taking on a former mixed martial arts (MMA) practitioner and geordie coast star, Aaron Chalmers. This is uncharted territory for Mayweather, 46, who will be contesting his first-ever fight in the UK.
And it’s all happening TODAY (Saturday February 25, 2023) live from the O2 Arena in London, England. Start times for the rest of the map are a bit murky, but Zeus (the streaming service) gets us started at 3 p.m. ET with the main event probably starting around two hours later around 5 p.m. ET.
As we all know, Mayweather’s perfect official record (50-0) hasn’t been touched in years, but he has “competed” in several exhibitions – basically glorified fight matches in which he allows young stars to go as long as he wants. The traveling show most recently saw him carry YouTuber Deji to the sixth round in November 2022 before stepping up the gas and ending it (full results here).
As for Chalmers, the former MMA fighter saw his last cage fight at Bellator 240, losing a decision to Austin Clem. It dropped his Bellator record to 2-2 and his overall MMA record to 5-2. After the Covid lockdown, he moved to the boxing ring, beating professional punching bag Alexander Zeledon, who is winless in his last 21 professional fights over the past three years.
You read correctly.
Still, it’s not about boxing skills, it’s about celebrities of all skill levels training with “Money” Mayweather and moving pay-per-view (PPV) buys. Kudos to all parties for putting this at a very reasonable price of $29.99, by the way.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Aaron Chalmers Per Game Updates:
160 lbs: Floyd Mayweather vs. Aaron Chalmers
Round 1: We’re on, and a cheeky nod to Floyd wearing the British flag shirt. The right lands right away for Floyd. Chalmers dancing and weaving. There is a Mayweather reversal. An uppercut. Chalmers lands a jab.
Round 2: Floyd floats left and lands a jab as he does. Left hand and he backs away from Chalmers’ return fire. The right hand while skirting lands and he floats near Chalmers. Chalmers throws fast, but Floyd’s defense is on point. Both men with jabs.
Round 3: Chalmers hits Floyd a bit and that energizes the former champion, and he hits a 1-2-break-3. Rights of the two men at the bell. Floyd throws a little late after the bell, but Aaron blocks it and yelps at him.
Round 4: Land the jab on Chalmers’ nose. Chalmers tries, but he can’t clean a glove on Mayweather. Chalmers backs Floyd into a corner and pulls out a 4-hit comb and it looked like he had a good one or two there.
Round 5: Pez dispenser shots from Floyd. Mayweather with a cute duck and just as he appears. The left hook also lands. Floyd is talking to the camera and dancing now.
Round 6: Floyd yelping and jabbing. He rolls this round and enjoys a few hits here and there.
Round 7: Aaron with a nice combo to open up. 1-2, mostly on the gloves, but a bit in there for Chalmers. Floyd with a right, pause for a beat then a left. Another right.
Round 8: Both men throw, most miss except for a Floyd right. Chalmers gets a straight right, Floyd gets one back.
