Floyd Mayweather’s boxing exhibition event rescheduled for Saturday in Dubai


Floyd Mayweather’s latest stop on his post-retirement exhibition tour has been rescheduled.

The event with Don Moore will take place Saturday on a helipad in Dubai, “Money” Mayweather announced via Instagram on Tuesday. The event was postponed one week after the death of UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan on Friday led to a three-day suspension of work in the nation.

UFC legend Anderson Silva will meet Bruno Machado in a boxing exhibition on the undercard.

Mayweather, 45, retired from professional boxing in 2017 after a nine-figure payday vs. UFC star Conor McGregor.

The following year, he staged an exhibition with kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan.

He returned for an exhibition with Logan Paul in June in Miami and raked in another massive payday.

Now he’s headed to the Middle East for an event with Moore, an undefeated yet unheralded boxer who mostly competed in four-round bouts until his final fight in 2016.

The following week, Mayweather will promote a Showtime PPV bout in Brooklyn between lightweight star Gervonta Davis and Rolly Romero.
