It looks like the exhibit between the all-time great Floyd Mayweather and his former teammate Don Moore will actually go down – just a week later than originally planned. Although the match was first held last Saturday on a helipad in Dubai, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, leader of the United Arab Emirates (where Dubai is based) passed away that Friday, leading to the show fight being postponed. However, it has been reported that the event could simply be pushed back instead of being cancelled.
And now the show is back. Mayweather, whose last professional fight was against Connor McGregor in 2017, has participated in numerous exhibitions since then, as such events seem to bring in easy money. They are also exhibits, with no chance of compromising Mayweather’s undefeated, lauded professional record. In a sense, these exhibits present a win/win scenario for Mayweather. None of this seems to have bothered Mayweather’s opponents.
Moore said, “I have the blueprint. “The coolest thing about it was that I was in the ring with him and I was in camp with him day in and day out. So understand ‘Dangerous’ Don Moore has what it takes to really win him over because I know his style. I know what will happen to me. I know how to adapt. I know how to adjust. I’m not Logan Paul, so you won’t be able to fight me like you fought him. I am a boxer. However he brought it, I will bring it right back to him. ”
And so, both retired boxers are once again getting ready on the helipad of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai as a highlight of the pay for a few hits.
