Floyd Mayweather is reportedly set for a shock return to the ring in an eight-round exhibition fight against Don Moore next month, with the fight taking place on the helipad on top of the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai.

The 45-year-old Mayweather’s last fight was another exhibition eight-rounder against YouTuber Logan Paul last June. He ‘officially’ retired from boxing with an undefeated 50-0 record after defeating UFC star Conor McGregor in 2017.

After his bout with Paul, Mayweather voiced his respect for Paul but, at the time, appeared to rule out a return to the ring.

After going eight rounds with Logan Paul in his exhibition fight in Miami Floyd Mayweather said he was not coming back to the sport of boxing.
“I had fun. You’ve got to realise I’m not 21 anymore,” he told Showtime Sport. “A great young fighter. Strong, tough. He’s better than I thought he was.

“We don’t know what the future holds, but I’ll talk it over with my team, and see where we go from there.

“You’ve got to realise, I’ve been in this sport 25 years. I understand I’m not 21, I’m not 25, but I had fun tonight.”
