Floyd Mayweather has announced he will fight Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers at the O2 Arena in his first-ever UK-based fight next month.

It comes days after Mayweather announced he would be facing Liam Harrison for the event, only for the kickboxing icon to pull out just six hours later due to a knee injury.

But the 45-year-old has acted quickly to find a new opponent, with reality TV star Chalmers given the nod to take on the boxing great.

Promoting the fight on social media, Mayweather wrote alongside its poster: 'London. This will be my first time showcasing my talent live on Feb. 25th. I want the whole UK at the O2 Arena.'

A second message read: 'Different face, different name, same results. #London we are still rocking and rolling on Feb. 25th at the O2 Arena. Tickets will be on sale soon. Stay tuned!!'
