Floyd Mayweather is also amongst one of the highest paid sportsmen in the World and one fight fan wants to meet.

Mayweather, a former Golden Gloves winner and Bronze medal winner in the 1996 Olympics, to date has enjoyed a sparkling career in the ring as one of the best pound for pound boxers with 84 amateur fights with only 6 losses.

As a professional he has won 8 World titles in 5 divisions. He is also a lineal champion in 3 different Weight classes.

Now the boxing sensation will be bringing all of this to Birmingham in June as he has agreed to be present for a one off dinner show for some of his loyal fans.

The A list Multi World Champion will be here on June 16th to give fight fans a very up close and personal account of his past life and fights to hopefully what he has planned for the next year or two.

Mayweather has been in the limelight for over ten years now and this will be his first visit to The Midlands and probably his only one at that.

Rumours have it he is here to talk with Amir Khan about possibly fighting him in February or March next year, but that’s just speculation and hopefully he will let me pry when I interview him on the day!

This one off event will and already is causing a massive stir in the boxing community and will be a huge affair for all types of press.

The event promoter Ken Purchase commented, “Mayweather coming over is a fight fan’s dream. Getting him to appear the UK’s 2nd city is fantastic.”

Over the years BOXFROG has showcased some fantastic Boxing Super Nights and Ken has welcomed boxing legends such as Mike Tyson, Nigel Benn, Ricky Hatton, George Groves, Joe Calzaghe, Larry Holmes and Evander Holyfield. All these shows have been of top grade, but this one will be the icing on the cake.

The event location at time of print is top secret but is in Birmingham.
