Floyd Mayweather to fight in exhibition bout in Dubai

Floyd Mayweather is ready to get back in the ring.

Mayweather will take part in an eight-round exhibition match against “Dangerous” Don Moore next month in Dubai, according to TMZ Sports.

The actual fight itself is going to be held on a helicopter landing pad at the Burj Al Arab hotel.

Mayweeather hasn’t stepped into a ring since he took on YouTuber Logan Paul in an exhibition last June. That fight went the distance, and no winner was called.

Mayweather’s last official bout came in 2017 against Conor McGregor. The 45-year-old knocked McGregor out in the 10th round of that bout in Las Vegas, which officially gave him a perfect 50-0 record. The bout was one of the highest grossing boxing events in history.

While it won’t count, the fight on May 14 is sure to draw plenty of attention. Moore, 42, hasn’t fought since 2013 — when he beat Reymundo Hernandes, which brought his all-time record to 18-0-1. It’s unclear how the fight will be judged, or if a winner will be declared.

Those two aren’t the only big names on the card. Former UFC champion Anderson Silva is set to get back in the ring to take on Bruno Machado. Former boxing champion Badou Jack is also reportedly on the card, though it’s unclear who he will fight.
