Aaron Chalmers confirms move into pro boxing after MMA retirement with Geordie Shore star eyeing WWE afterwards

AARON CHALMERS confirmed his move into prof boxing after retiring from MMA – with the Geordie Shore star eyeing WWE afterwards.

Chalmers leaves the cage with a 5-2 record, having fought four times for Bellator.

He announced via social media that he was no longer continuing his MMA journey and hinted at a new switch.

Chalmers followed it up by confirming plans to move into WWE before retiring for good aged 40.

He tweeted: "Couple of years in my new career which will be announced soon and then we move to @WWEUK@WWE and retired at 40."

Asked if he was moving into celebrity boxing, Chalmers replied: "Nope not celebrity."

The 33-year-old, who had two knockouts in MMA, is now training at esteemed boxing coach Adam Booth's gym.

Booth has trained ex-world champions David Haye, George Groves and Andy Lee, and currently has a stable of rising talent.

That includes Josh Kelly, Michael Conlan, Harlem Eubank and Shannon Courtenay.

And it was Sunderland's Kelly and 2012 London Olympics bronze medalist Conlan who let the cat out the bag that Chalmers was turning over.


The pair called for their new gym-mate to fight YouTuber-turned boxer Jake Paul, who is 2-0 since debuting in 2020.

Conlan, 29, said on Matchroom's podcast: "Speaking about Aaron actually – we want Jake Paul. Aaron's a celebrity, we want Jake Paul.

"Aaron will f*** Jake Paul up. I will say it now, he will f*** Jake Paul up.

"Jake Paul's a b****. He'll f*** him up. Simple as that."

Kelly, 26, added: "Jake Paul's never a cruiserweight, either. He should be getting that weight off, getting down.

"Aaron's got what, nearly what three million followers on Instagram and Twitter? If that fight doesn't sell what will?"

Conlan then urged promoter Eddie Hearn to get in touch with them to set up the fight with 24-year-old Paul.
