Floyd Mayweather Jr is at it again!
The legendary boxer shows no signs of hanging up his gloves at the tender age of 45 after lining up yet another exhibition match against former sparring partner Don Moore.
“Money” is set to take on Moore in an eight-round contest at the iconic Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai this May – and in classic Mayweather style he will be fighting right at the top of the skyscraper on a helipad.
He will appear on the The Global Titans Fight Series that will also feature ex-professional boxer Badou Jack and former MMA fighter Anderson Silva, according to a report by TMZ.
Mayweather’s opponent Moore is known by the nickname “Dangerous”. He did go his entire career undefeated with 18 wins – 12 of which were knockouts – and just one draw. But Moore never challenged for a belt throughout his boxing life and his last fight came all the way back in 2016.
Sparring rumours always tickle me pink. Here’s the reaction from @FloydMayweather when told that Canelo is making sparring partners quit camp. Love him or hate him, this was absolute gold from Mayweather! 🤣 #boxing 🥊 pic.twitter.com/KNeOjwCW0Q

The two fighters will get some view as they go toe-to-toe, taking in the Dubai skyline.
It is not the first time the Burj Al Arab helipad has been used for a sporting event. The 1053ft building has hosted Anthony Joshua during a sparring session 2017, while tennis star Andre Agassi played out an exhibition match with Roger Federer in 2005.
Having never tasted defeat as a professional and ending with a record of 50-0, Mayweather rounded off his boxing career with a victory over UFC star Conor McGregor in an epic crossover bout that was understood to have earned him at least $100m.
He then fought Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa and wiped him out in just one round in Tokyo on New Years’ Eve in 2018 – earning himself $9m (£6.8m) for an easy night’s work.
