Kong Events based in Leicester, have been working on something very special and are excited to announce that they will be bringing undefeated heavyweight boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather, to the city on Thursday 2nd March, 2017. Leicester Athena shall play host to the evening, set to feature a 45-minute question and answer session with the boxing legend himself, as well as the chance of a VIP experience, to get up close and personal with a meet and greet opportunity. Tickets also include a 2-course meal and entertainment. Floyd Mayweather Jr, an American former professional boxer who competed from 1996 to 2015, many of us will regard as one of the all time greats. Undefeated as a professional, Mayweather won 15 world titles across five divisions and was undefeated throughout his impressive career. To add to his historical accolade, Mayweather won several sporting and boxing awards, most recently being ranked the greatest pound for pound boxer of the last 25 years by ESPN earlier this year. As one of the most talked about Boxers in boxing history, the night promises to be one to remember. In anticipation of the event, Shane Whitfield, owner of Kong Events, says; “Bringing Mayweather to the city has been in the plan for a long time. We have a lot of loyal fans and our aim has always been to bring them events which money can’t ordinarily buy … and this one ticks all the boxes. Mayweather is an absolute highlight in our calendar for next year and an achievement which I’m particularly proud of’. With the excitement building by all involved, the evening is not one to be missed. Following the triumph of previous Kong Events evenings, which have seen the likes of Mike Tyson, Alan Shearer and Anthony Joshua, Mayweather’s appearance hopes to further highlight the fact that Leicester has become a hot spot for high profile names at exclusive events.
The evening is being sponsored by Skill Stone and Skill Scaff.
