Shockingly, the massive venue was almost empty but that didn’t stop Mayweather from having fun and putting on a show for those who bought tickets for the event.

As the fight progressed, ‘The Best Ever’ realised Chalmers was not a threat and began to trash-talk him while also conversing with people at ringside.

When one round came to an end, he grabbed the ring card girl and began dancing with her in scenes reminiscent of his fight with Don Moore.

Mayweather stepped up his wacky antics later on when he made some space for himself and did a 360-degree spin, prompting a bemused look from his opponent.

The 46-year-old continued to entertain the crowd between rounds, at one point he sat on the top rope and stared out Chalmers who beamed with joy when the final bell rang.

Both men had their hands raised and no winner was declared, but it was clear that Mayweather won every second of the fight without breaking a sweat.

In the build-up, the reality TV personality was hoping a good performance would help him secure a fight against Jake Paul, Tommy Fury, or KSI.

Post-fight, he reiterated his desire to face the best influencer boxers before Mayweather got on the mic to thank the fans who came out to watch him and also praise Britain as the new ‘Mecca of boxing.’

He said: “I would like to thank all the UK fans. The fans are unbelievable. The UK is becoming the Mecca of boxing. Unbelievable fighters. I’m glad that I came… If the fans want me to come back, I’m coming back.

Tonight was Mayweather’s sixth exhibition bout since retiring from professional boxing following his hugely lucrative tenth-round TKO win over UFC superstar Conor McGregor in 2017.

It’s expected ‘Money’ will continue his retirement tour later this year and he has been heavily linked to a fight with former UFC champion Jose Aldo who was famously knocked out by McGregor when they fought in a featherweight unification bout in 2015.
