Former sparring partners were scheduled to share the ring at 700ft high Burj Al Arab hotel.



Floyd Mayweather will fight Don Moore in his return to boxing

Floyd Mayweather will be making an exhibition return to Abu Dhabi's Etihad Arena.

The entire event was canceled due to the death of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE President at 73 years old.

The UAE's Ministry of Presidential Affairs had announced a 40-day mourning period and a three day suspension of all ministry work.

After the ring had been put up just hours before cancellation, it left organizers scrambling for a new date.

Mayweather, 45, announced that his comeback fight would be held this Saturday, May 21, after a seven-day delay.

Mayweather offered another update, suggesting that his return will be Saturday. He was moving less than 100 miles from the finish line.

Now, he will fight Moore, 42 in Abu Dhabi at The Etihad Arena. Conor McGregor (33) was the headliner in January 2021.

SunSport reports that Mayweather is still hopeful of fighting in the extraordinary helipad display at a later date.

However, the heats in Dubai are currently at close to 40 degrees and the fight is taking place outdoors, so an indoor venue was necessary.

Initially, there were only 20-40 VIP guests. Tickets purchased as NFTs cost around PS150,000 and were initially limited to 20-40.
