Abi Clarke 'dating boxer Floyd Mayweather'

Share article:

Abi Clarke has been secretly dating boxer professional boxer Floyd Mayweather.

The former "The Only Way is Essex" star and the 40-year-old fighter have reportedly enjoyed a string of dates since meeting last year, and he is said to have helped her regain her confidence.

An insider said: "Abi and Floyd really hit it off and she was blown away by his sense of humour and generosity. She was in a fragile and vulnerable place and Floyd has made her feel confident again.

"Although she knew about his reputation as a party animal, she's been pleasantly surprised and discovered he's actually a really lovely guy."

Floyd - who is nicknamed Pretty Boy, and Money - met the 25-year-old beauty when she was on a girls" holiday in Las Vegas last year following her split form footballer Rob Davies, and the pair have taken their relationship slowly since.

The insider added to The Sun newspaper: "He made sure they were friends first, before trying to take it further. He's really helped mend her broken heart and heal her scars."

Abi is expected to return to Las Vegas next month to support once-retired boxer Floyd when he fights UFC champion Conor McGregor in what is being billed as the boxing bout of the millennium.

Mayweather is considered to be one of the best boxers of all time after winning all 49 of his professional fights.

Abi shot to fame in 2013 when she joined the cast of "TOWIE" series eight alongside the likes of Dan Osborne and James Locke.

Last year, she was reported to be considering a boob job, undergoing liposuction on her stomach and thighs and thinking about having two ribs removed.

A source said at the time: "She knows she needs to compete with the new, younger girls like Megan McKenna. She knows she needs to stand out.

"She has killer boobs already but wants them even bigger and a booty like Kim Kardashian. She wants her body to pop out and be recognisable.
