But his original bout against Liam Harrison was KO’d on Friday after the Brit suffered a knee injury.
It saw Mayweather scour the sparring world for a new opponent.
And he has now revealed he will be taking on reality TV star-turned-MMA fighter Chalmers in a potential classic at the O2.
Alongside a poster of the event, Mayweather wrote on social media: “London. This will be my first time showcasing my talent live on Feb. 25th. I want the whole UK at the O2 Arena.”
A second message added: “Different face, different name, same results. London we are still rocking and rolling on Feb. 25th at the O2 Arena. Tickets will be on sale soon. Stay tuned!!”
Mayweather, 45, retired with a perfect 50-0 professional record following his win over Conor McGregor in 2017.
But he is no stranger to exhibition fights since then, having already beaten the likes of YouTuber-turned-WWE star Logan Paul and kickboxing legend Tenshin Nasukawa.
Mayweather’s latest win came against KSI’s brother Deji in November.
