And despite the bout being his professional debut, the former amateur boxer jumped at the once in a lifetime opportunity.

Fincham, 31, told Planet Sport: “You’d have to be mad to turn that down.

“Even having your name in the same article that Floyd Mayweather is in, it’s surreal.

“It’s really exciting and it’s a massive opportunity as well. A massive stage to have your debut on. I’m absolutely buzzing.”

Fincham, who had just under 30 amateur bouts, signed with Frank Warren’s son Francis.

And already the boxing manager has got him on the undercard of ring royalty in Mayweather, 45, who boxes YouTuber Deji, 25.

Fincham is out to prove he can actually box and will call on the experience he gained in the unpaid ranks.

He said: “I can adapt. I think that comes with a bit of experience.


“I think people are going to be shocked. It won’t look like I’ve just stepped in from reality TV, it will look like this geezer knows what he’s doing.

“And I’ll be able to adapt to anything that’s in front of me. That’s part of being from the amateurs really.

“Sometimes you turn up to shows as a spare and you’d get on the show and you’d fight.

“Sometimes you’d fight three times in a week against three different boys. I can adapt, I wouldn’t say I’m one style.

“And also, you’ve got to remember that the pro game is a lot different to amateur.

“Sometimes you might settle into a new style because amateur is very pitter-patter and very counter-punchy.

“Whereas pros ain’t so much that. I’m still sort of discovering that a bit more now. Training as a pro.”
