Floyd Mayweather goes the distance with Aaron Chalmers in exhibition bout

Floyd Mayweather easily picked off Aaron Chalmers in his latest exhibition bout following his retirement in 2017.

Mayweather took on Chalmers, who is best known as a reality star from his days on Geordie Shore, at the O2 Arena in London, England, on Saturday.

And they went the distance, with both fighters going the full eight rounds (two-minute rounds) - with no winner declared in the exhibition bout.

Mayweather began the bout by popping his jab and showing off his timing. He also landed an uppercut flush on Chalmers.

Mayweather continued with his jab, picking Chalmers off with absolute ease. To his credit, the 1-0 boxer was resilient and marched forward.

Mayweather tagged Chalmers with his trademark jab, with the Newcastle fighter swinging big and missing big in the final round.

As the bout was only an exhibition, no winner was declared with the referee raising both of their arms at the end of the contest.

The bout against Chalmers was Mayweather's sixth exhibition since his retirement after his victory over Conor McGregor.

He's now boxed Tenshin Nasukawa, Logan Paul, Don Moore, Mikuru Asakura and Deji.

Speaking after going the distance with the 35-year-old, 'Money' said: "Chalmers is tough as nails. We had a chance to get together and entertain the people. We had fun for eight rounds, and I'm glad that I came

"I have a lot of experience. He has to continue to work hard and believe in his team, himself, and his skills because he has a tough chin and is a tough competitor. Anything is possible if he works hard."

Asked if he'd return to the UK for another fight, the 46-year-old added: "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."
