Mayweather vs Chalmers: Start time, undercard, prediction and odds
It’s the latest stop on the Mayweather money tour, following his win over YouTuber Deji in a bizarre event in Dubai last year.
His latest assignment is Chalmers, who is best known for appearing in the MTV show Geordie Shore. The 35-year-old has had seven MMA fights, joining Bellator in 2017, though the last of those came three years ago when he was beaten for the second time.
Chalmers has since moved into the boxing ring, with his one and only professional bout resulting in a points win over Alexander Zeledon last year.
Mayweather, 50-0 as a professional and entirely untroubled in this string of exhibition fights, was originally due to face Liam Harrison, but the Muay Thai figher from Leeds pulled out with injury.

Mayweather vs Chalmers fight prediction
Here we go again.
Chalmers has at least some combat experience, though to say this is a step up from his one previous professional bout would be somewhat of an understatement.
Against Deji, Mayweather spent most of the night dancing around and showing off, only really engaging seriously when he got caught for the first time.
This is likely to be go at least a few rounds too, assuming Mayweather is happy to play along and Chalmers doesn’t goad the American.
A stoppage can be expected somewhere towards the end of the scheduled eight rounds.
