Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather will face Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers in an exhibition next month.
Mayweather, who retired 50-0, was originally scheduled to fight Muay Thai fighter Liam Harrison.
However, he was forced to withdraw from the event at London’s O2 Arena, leaving Chalmers to face the Americans.
Mayweather has been participating in exhibition matches since retiring in 2017, creating a lucrative market for him facing YouTuber Logan Paul and Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
Posting on Instagram on Monday, Mayweather wrote: “Different face, different name, same result.
“London continues to rock and roll at The O2 Arena on February 25th. Tickets on sale soon. Stay tuned!!”
Chalmers, who won his only professional boxing fight, also added: I’m fighting @floydmayweather at 02 London on February 25th!!
“It doesn’t get any bigger for me!! Someone’s 0 has to go,” he added, referring to their undefeated record.

Chalmers went 2-2 at Bellator before eventually retiring from mixed martial arts competition in 2021, including three wins at BAMMA.
The date of the match is scheduled to be the same day as the match between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury.
They ended up fighting on their third request, and in the previous attempt Fury withdrew with an injury and was denied entry into the United States.
The location of their clash is believed to be yet to be determined, but speculation suggests it could be held in Saudi Arabia.
So boxing fans will have to pick a match on February 25th, with Mayweather set to compete in the much-anticipated exhibition match.
