Floyd Mayweather to face Liam Harrison in an exhibition bout in London O2 Arena


Floyd Mayweather, a former five-division world champion, will proceed with his plan to hold an exhibition bout in the United Kingdom.


Mayweather made the formal announcement on social media that his upcoming  bout would take place at London's O2 Arena on February 25. Liam Harrison, a 37-year-old kickboxer, will face Mayweather.


Harrison, also known as The Hitman, is a Muay Thai fighter with a 90-25-2 record, 50 of which are knockout victories.


It's not the first time Mayweather and a kickboxer will square off in a fight. When Mayweather first fought in an exhibition match in Japan in 2018, the kickboxing champion Tenshin Nasukawa was easily defeated by Mayweather.


46-year-old Mayweather retired from boxing in 2017 with a perfect 50-0 record and 26 knockouts. Conor McGregor, a star in the UFC, was defeated by Mayweather in his final bout in front of a large cross-sport boxing crowd.


Since his retirement, Mayweather has competed in a number of exhibition matches, going up against opponents like Logan Paul, Deji, Mikuru Asakura, and others.


Several weeks ago, Mayweather detailed his plan to travel over to the UK for an exhibition.

"In February we're looking forward to coming here and putting on an exhibition for the fans in the UK, because I never had a chance to come over here and fight when I was actively boxing as a professional. So hopefully in February I'll come over and do an exhibition if it's possible," Mayweather said.
