AN AUDIENCE is set to fill Lighthouse in Poole later this month as boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr brings his European tour to Dorset.

The undefeated former world champion is set to appear on stage on Thursday, February 27.

Organiser Ty Temel, of IAM Events, said: "This is not like a lot of people you could see walking down a shopping mall like you could with other sports stars.

“I am so excited to bring him here. It is a big thing to tick off on the bucket list for me and it was always a big dream of mine to book him. He is seen by some as the best boxer of all time and he is also known away from the sport.”

Tickets for the event, which has been delivered by IAM Events, alongside Goldstar Promotions, can be bought online at, subject to availability.

Previous IAM Events bookings in Dorset include heavyweight boxing stars Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.
