Floyd Mayweather is charging fans £1,200 to speak to him in an online meet-and-greet session.

The boxing legend has joined video site Fanmio and is offering a one-on-one chat to fans.

Various packages are available, the cheapest of which comes in at £52. This gets you a free shirt but no guarantee of speaking to Mayweather. Three people who select this option will be picked.

The top deal will set you back an eye-watering £1,200. This includes signed trading cards, a shirt and a recording of the experience.

The 50-0 star told fans: “Now here's your chance, to meet me, no matter where you at around the world.

“You can ask me anything, ask me about all 50 fights, ask me what's my eating regiment, ask me what's my best fight, ask me what's my best knockout, ask me what I do everyday, in retirement.

“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.”

Mayweather will be delighted if he’s just as successful on Fanmio as Mike Tyson was on Cameo, a similar service.

Iron Mike recently signed up to the personal video service and according to TMZ, earned $20,000 in his first six hours on the site.

Mayweather’s deal with Fanmio comes two months after rapper 50 Cent said he’s starting to go broke.

“I think he got to right now because the money’s gone,” 50, real name Curtis Jackson, told Hot 97 in February, per The Sun.

“It’s fight, get the money, spend the money, fight.

“With the lifestyle that money’s gone. Trust me. Now it’s like if you call him he’ll be at your local nightclub because he needs that action right now.”

Jackson will surely have something to say about Mayweather’s online venture.
