Floyd Mayweather vs Aaron Chalmers exhibition fight’s awful undercard brings shame to Boxing HOF’s legacy

Floyd Mayweather is scheduled to compete in yet another exhibition bout this coming Saturday, February 25th, against Aaron Chalmers.

Mayweather has been a divisive figure throughout his entire professional boxing career, and that trend shows no signs of abating any time soon even after retirement as he still regularly appears in the ring in an undercard bout.

Mayweather ended his 20-year long professional boxing career after his 2017 victory over Conor McGregor at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. In spite of his retirement, Floyd remained connected to boxing in some capacity, as seen by his appearances in a number of exhibition matches for the pleasure of his devoted fan base.

Many boxing fans and promoters believe that Floyd Mayweather is squandering his boxing reputation by remaining active and fighting in undercard bouts solely for the purpose of financial gain. The 46-year-old boxer’s exhibition showdown against Aaron Chalmers was confirmed this week by the promoters, and ever since then, it has been the topic of conversation in the boxing world. Many people seem to believe that Floyd Mayweather is no longer deserving of being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Up to this point, Money has competed in five exhibition matches, against the likes of Tenshin Nasukawa, Don Moore, Logan Paul, Mikuru Asakura, and Deji Olatunji. The American will be taking part in another exhibition match at London’s The O2 Arena which is going to be his first fight in the United Kingdom.

In addition to taking part in exhibition fights randomly, there is another issue that has been brought to light: the quality of the opponents that great retired boxers like Mayweather are up against. The majority of the time, the opponents are former mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters or internet influencers who take part in fights only for the purpose of entertainment.
