- Undefeated fighter Floyd Mayweather is offering a virtual chat with his fans
- But ‘Money’ is charging up to £1200 for the event that includes merchandise
- Mayweather has been accused in the past of cash-grabs following retirement
- Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19
A chance to meet one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters of all time doesn’t come around often, but even Floyd Mayweather’s biggest supporters will be surely baulk at the price to speak with him online.
Mayweather has been an active presence since his last world title fight in 2015 as he has teased fans about a possible return to the ring, as well as taking on UFC star Conor McGregor and kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in lucrative crossover fights.
This year he had touted the possibility of taking on McGregor once again or a bout with another UFC star in Khabib Nurmagomedov, but with no boxing taking place during the coronavirus lockdown across the world, he has now taken to celebrity meet-and-greet site Fanmio to give fans a chance to speak to him one-on-one.

However, the top package on offer will set you back around £1,200 – an eye-watering sum that also includes signed trading carts and a shirt – as well as a recording of the experience.
The cheapest deal on the Fanmio page costs £52 and gives you a free shirt but no guarantee of speaking with Mayweather online – with three fans who select this option being picked.
Speaking on the official Fanmio site, Mayweather told fans: ‘Now here’s your chance, to meet me, no matter where you at around the world.

‘To be the best, you must always work overtime. This event is unbelievable, you guys don’t won’t to miss out, I’ve got some exclusive pieces I will be signing just for this event.
‘I can’t wait to meet you all, I want to meet your family, your friends.’
