Floyd Mayweather will fight in the United Kingdom for the first time next month, taking on kickboxing star Liam Harrison.

On February 25, the two will square off in an exhibition match at the O2 Arena.

Mayweather, 46, confirmed the news on Instagram, attaching a photo of the event poster in London.

He captioned the photo, “London, February 25th, It is now official. My first exhibition fight in the United Kingdom will take place at the O2 Arena.

Harrison, 37, a decorated Muay Thai fighter known as The Hitman, has amassed 50 KOs in his 90-25-2 career.

Mayweather hasn’t fought professionally since 2017 when he defeated MMA superstar Conor McGregor in Las Vegas to improve to 50-0 in the ring.

But he’s kept himself busy since then, taking part in exhibition fights against Logan Paul, Deji, and Mikuru Asakura, among others.

During his legendary professional career, Mayweather never fought outside of the United States, including his epic victory over Ricky Hatton in Las Vegas in December 2007.

“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,” he said earlier this month.

Mayweather is one of the most legendary boxers in history, having defeated Manny Pacquiao, Oscar de la Hoya, Shane Mosley, Miguel Cotto, Marcos Maidana, and Juan Manuel Marquez in addition to Hatton.
