Boxing fans will have the rare chance to meet one of the all time greats when Floyd Mayweather Jnr attends a dinner in Leeds next month.

Mayweather, who is unbeaten after 46 professional fights, will be at Elland Road on Saturday June 21 as part of a six-date tour of the UK.

The five-weight world champion won his last fight against hard-hitting Argentine Marcos Maidana last month, will speak for 45 minutes about his glittering career, while there will also be a Q&A and an auction.

Tickets start at £50, with packages going up to £300, which includes a professional picture opportunity, three-course meal and table service.

Stephen Oleksewycz, managing director of event promoter Olexy Fresh Promotions said: “The format of the show will be like all our previous events, Floyd will give an exclusive insight into his career, we have a jazz band, comedian, amazing auction, raffle and much more on the night.

“We have secured one leg of his UK tour, which is six dates in total.

“This a once in a lifetime chance to meet one of the greatest boxers in the history of the game, currently unbeaten and world champion five times.

“He is currently the highest paid athlete in the world, so this is an amazing coup for us as a company.”
