Floyd Mayweather's next exhibition fight will be in Florida


Floyd Mayweather, a former five-division world champion, has set a date for his upcoming exhibition fight with John Gotti III, the grandson of notorious organised crime figure John Gotti.


The event is titled "Last Name Matter" and will held on Sunday, June 11 in Sunrise, Florida. Ozuna and Romeo Santos will perform.


On Thursday in Florida, there will be a formal press conference where Mayweather and Gotti will face off.


Marikit "Kitchie" Laurico, Mayweather's longtime helper who passed tragically unexpectedly in April, will be honoured at the ceremony.


30-year-old Gotti spent several years competing as an amateur before turning pro. After turning professional in 2017, he amassed a 5-1 record.


He switched to boxing in October and made his professional debut after winning a four-round unanimous decision. This past January, Gotti made his return to the ring with a knockout victory.


Mayweather, 46, ended his career in 2017 with a perfect 50-0 record after defeating UFC fighter Conor McGregor in a mixed martial arts match.


Since his retirement, Mayweather has participated in a number of exhibition fights, the biggest of which was his matchup with social media sensation Logan Paul in 2021.


Mayweather took part in three exhibitions in 2022, including a bout with KSI's younger brother Deji. Mayweather made his UK debut in an exhibition with kickboxer Aaron Chalmers.
