What has been said:

Mayweather:

“It’s great to be back in the UK performing an entertainment dream come true. I’ve been coming to the UK since 1993 it’s good to be over here. My advice to him is to leave here with skills. He’s rough, challenging, and got experience in combat, so I’m pretty sure he’ll be at his best.

“I’ve got so much experience at the highest level. I’ve fought at the best events. Experience plays a major part. With all these fighters, I want them to give it 100 per cent. We’re here to entertain. The UK has a big fight market, it’s huge. I want him to be at his best and give it his all.”

“My job is to entertain and do what I do. I don’t have to have fast hands or feet. The fans in the UK have always been great to me and supported me throughout my career, so an event like this has been a long time coming. I’ve got so much experience at the highest level. I’ve fought at the best events. I’ve seen everything but you can never overlook a guy or underestimate a guy. He believes in his skills and talent.”

Chalmers :

“He’s 46 on Friday, he’s got 10 years on me, so it’s just about being sharp and being in his face. He’s one of the best boxers so I can’t get too carried away and get clipped. If you face the best of all time, the rest should be much easier. This was the offer that came in and I grabbed It with both hands.”

“I’d like to have fun with it as well but I’m going out there to disrespect the man. I’m not going to give anything away, I’m just excited. We’re here now, it’s been a whirlwind four weeks. I know his jab is unbelievable, can I handle that jab? You’ll find that out on Saturday. I’ve tried to be sharp and fit, I’ve got a nutritionist and there’s no stone unturned when facing Floyd.”
