Floyd Mayweather is returning to the ring. After an exhibition bout with Logan Paul last year, “Money” Mayweather is taking on Don “Dangerous” Moore Legendary American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is all set to step into the ring, yet again for an exhibition match against Don Moore at the Burj Al Arab, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates on May 14.

Alongside the main event, UFC legend Anderson SIlva taking on fellow ex-Brazilian MMA fighter Bruno Machado in an exhibition bout.

What has been said so far?
As reported by TalkSport, shedding his thoughts about his celebratory boxing career, Mayweather said, “I was able to leave boxing on my own terms and now the boxing critics are upset that I am still able to milk and finesse the sport of boxing by throwing exhibitions. Sixteen minutes and I am able to get eight and nine figures from the fruits of my labour. Once again I am not hurting for my money, I am far from hurting for money. I didn’t retire from getting money.”
Moore and Mayweather also have a history together, as the two used to be sparring partners and Moore was even trained by Mayweather’s uncle, Roger Mayweather. Moore is undoubtedly very familiar with Mayweather’s style — and is likely training harder than Mayweather (the latter admitted to a lax training regimen before the Logan Paul bout) — so there is a chance that Moore could do some damage. Still, most are predicting a win for Mayweather.
Luckily, there are some other great fights on the Mayweather vs. Moore undercard, including a standout fight between UFC champion Anderson Silva and Bruno Machado. Anderson “The Spider” Silva returned to boxing after leaving the UFC in 2020, recently defeating Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Tito Ortiz.
The Mayweather vs. Moore undercard will also see Delfine Persoon vs. Maiva Hamadouche and Badou Jack vs. Hany Atiyo — both of which should be exciting bouts.
