Floyd Mayweather's bout against Liam Harrison cancelled

It doesn't appear that Floyd Mayweather's most recent crossover fight will go place.

After his thrilling encounter with UFC superstar Conor McGregor in August 2017, Mayweather developed an interest in cross-over battles.

Since then, Mayweather has given up boxing as a professional sport and now makes a living by engaging in prestigious exhibition contests, typically against famous athletes from other sports.

He even engaged in combat with notorious YouTuber-turned-boxer and professional wrestler Logan Paul back in June 2021. In more recent times, the box office kingpin defeated YouTuber Deji and MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura back-to-back.

Money is now focused on Liam Harrison, a welterweight Muay Thai fighter competing for the ONE Championship. The bout, according to Mayweather, may take place on February 23 at London's O2 Arena.

However, no such duel is taking place, according to Harrison and ONE CEO Chatri Sityodtong.

Sityodtong has been very clear about how he feels about Mayweather's most recent remarks regarding a fight. The ONE CEO has stated unequivocally that no such fight will take place because Harrison is under ONE's exclusive contract.

“He is posting fake news,” Sityodtong claimed. “Liam is exclusive to ONE and ONE has never been contacted by Floyd or his team.”

In an Instagram post that has since been deleted, Liam Harrison also stated that the fight will not go place. Even if the fight had been approved, the British fighter cited his chronic knee issues as a major reason why he wouldn't be allowed to compete.

“Many of you will have seen the announcement this morning about my fight against Floyd Mayweather,” Harrison wrote in an Instagram post on Friday. Devastatingly, my knee just won’t allow it.
