Floyd Mayweather will once again step into the ring when he takes on Don Moore on a Dubai hotel helipad in May.
Mayweather, 45, retired as a former five-weight world champion in 2018, beating UFC star Conor McGregor to improve his professional record to 50-0.
The American has fought in exhibition bouts since, stopping kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018 and going the distance with YouTuber Logan Paul last June.
Now Mayweather is set to box in another exhibition bout when he takes on the undefeated Moore at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel helipad on May 14.
Moore, also 45, has an 18-0-1 pro record but hasn’t fought since 2016.
The American, nicknamed ‘Dangerous’, has won his last two contests by stoppage and has 12 total knockouts to his name.
On Mayweather’s undercard against Moore, former UFC champion Anderson Silva continues his boxing adventure and Sweden’s Badou Jack will also be in action.
Tickets for the Global Titans Dubai event, which will be broadcast on LIVENow, will be available exclusively in NFT format – a first in international boxing.
