Floyd Mayweather

On Thursday 2nd March Athena we were the first host venue of 3 date UK ‘Floyd Mayweather’s Undefeated Tour’.

Super cars lined the outside of the building and through the red-carpet entrance there were many exclusive signed pieces of memorabilia which were up for auction that evening. The main event took place in our grand cinema suite, with our tiered flooring provided uninterrupted views of the stage along with our substantial in house tech spec and sell-out crowd creating an electric atmosphere to welcome one of the highest profile sporting athletes in the world.

Guests including many of the current premiership champions from Leicester City football club enjoyed a fabulous two course meal. Before Mayweather did his ‘ring walk’ entrance.

After the auction and VIP photo meet and greets an in depth 45-minute interview hosted by Sky Sports Johnny Nelson gave an insight into Floyd’s boxing career both past and present.
