As retired professional boxer Floyd Mayweather is planning to visit eight United Kingdom cities in his ‘European Victory Tour’, fans would have to cough out up to £2,000 to meet the undefeated champion.
The 38-year-old who has visited Russia, India and Turkey since retiring last September after defeating Andre Berto for his 49th professional career victory said in a short video: “I cannot forget about my great fans in the UK. “The UK, the undisputed kings. See you soon.”
The tour which will take place over a two-week period will be starting next month in Cardiff — the tickets for the Cardiff and Bristol will be available for £45 a night with additional cost of £200 to take a picture with the champ.
The Cardiff and Bristol leg will be hosted by Sky Sports boxing presenter Johnny Nelson.
The Glasgow, London and Manchester shows will include a three-course dinner with tickets priced at £200, £300 and £500 respectively — to include photograph, fans will have to pay £450 in Glasgow, £600 in London and £1,000 in Manchester.
The most expensive option of the tour is the platinum package in Manchester £2,000, where fans will get an opportunity of an extended meet and greet with Mayweather in one of the suites at the Old Trafford ground.
The London show, which lasts three-and-a-half hours, will be hosted by Jonathan Ross and features a charity auction.
