Former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather will indeed move forward with his plan to stage an exhibition fight in the UK.

Mayweather took to social media to officially announce that his next unsanctioned fight will take place on February 25 at the O2 Arena in London.

Mayweather's opponent will be kickboxer Liam Harrison, 37-years-old.

"London February 25th, It’s official. My first exhibition fight in the UK will be at the O2 Arena. Tickets go on sale next week. Stay Tuned," Mayweather stated on social media. 

Muay Thai fighter Harrison, known as The Hitman, has a record of 90-25-2 - with 50 wins by knockout.

The upcoming contest is not the first where Mayweather will collide with a kickboxer. Back in 2018, Mayweather traveled over to Japan for his first exhibition fight, where he blew away kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa.

Mayweather, 46-years-old, retired from the sport in 2017 with a perfect record of 50-0 with 26 knockouts. In his last official fight, Mayweather stopped UFC superstar Conor McGregor in huge cross-sport boxing match.

Since retiring, Mayweather has taken part in several exhibition fights - including contests against Logan Paul, Deji, Mikuru Asakura and others.

Last year, Mayweather took part in three exhibitions.

Several weeks ago, Mayweather detailed his plan to travel over to the UK for an exhibition.

"In February we're looking forward to coming here and putting on an exhibition for the fans in the UK, because I never had a chance to come over here and fight when I was actively boxing as a professional. So hopefully in February I'll come over and do an exhibition if it's possible," Mayweather said.
