Floyd Mayweather has been getting some unusual preparation for his upcoming exhibition fight.
The retired 45-year-old boxing legend now travels the world facing celebrities in showcase bouts, with his next outing scheduled to take place on February 25 in London.
The first of Mayweather’s exhibitions came in Japan on New Year’s Eve 2018 when he knocked out kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
After a break, Mayweather stepped back through the ropes in 2021 and went eight-rounds with social media star Logan Paul.
In 2022, he was far more active with three exhibitions.
Floyd began in May with a fight in Abu Dhabi, UAE, in which he beat up his former sparring partner Don Moore.
Then, in September, he flew back to Japan and KOd MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura.
In November he made his third appearance of the year and stopped YouTube star Deji in Dubai, UAE.
Now, Mayweather is set to face Geordie Shore’s Chalmers on February 25 at London’s O2 Arena.
Ahead of the bout, 21-year-old YouTuber Jarvis – who has previously had one influencer boxing match – flew out to the iconic Mayweather gym for a sparring session.
He got into the ring for two rounds with the legend who left him bruised as a result.
Mayweather did not take the session seriously at all.
He taunted his foe with high pitched noises when he missed.
Mayweather also trash talked throughout and was heard sarcastically mocking Jarvis’ weak jabs.
Floyd danced during the spar and even simply laughed at Jarvis for a brief period.
He did also land some hard blows though and no doubt made an impression on the youngster.
