Floyd Mayweather lines up post-career UK / European tour

Phil Jay 07/09/2015

Pound for pound best in the world Floyd Mayweather Jr will be travelling to the United Kingdom and Europe this October, the fighter has announced.

The 38 year-old is retiring from boxing on September 12 following the completion of his Showtime contract against Andre Berto and will then head across the Atlantic within weeks of hanging up his gloves.

‘Money’ will be taking in eight cities in Great Britain before heading to France and Belgium in his post-career tour, which will see Mayweather appear in London, Manchester, Paris and Glasgow among others.

Mayweather is widely regarded as the greatest fighter of his generation having defeated the likes of Oscar De La Hoya, Canelo Alvarez, Miguel Cotto and more recently arch-rival Manny Pacquiao during a stellar career.

The current WBC and WBA champion at 147 and 154lbs, Mayweather will no doubt be taking his massive entourage with him as the five-weight world title holder gives the European fans a chance to catch a glimpse of him in retirement.

More details of the trip will be announced by Mayweather Promotions soon.
