Floyd Mayweather Jr. knows how to make a tidy profit.

And the man with the nickname "Money" isn't about to miss the opportunity to cash in on his champion status, having announced plans for an extensive—and expensive—UK tour, starting in February.

Mayweather will appear for eight dates at locations including Cardiff, Manchester and London on the tour, with tickets to the nights costing as much as £500.

But if you want the "platinum" option, the opportunity to "meet and greet" the recently retired welterweight boxing champion will set you back a staggering £2,000 for Manchester.

The full tour dates are below, with the nights hosted by television presenter Jonathan Ross in London and former cruiserweight world champion Johnny Nelson elsewhere.

February 1: Cardiff

February 2: Bristol

February 4: London 

February 5: Glasgow

February 7: Sheffield

February 11: Manchester

February 12: Birmingham 

February 14: Bedford

Mayweather retired with a 49-0 professional record in September after beating Andre Berto on points in Las Vegas.
