After the cancellation of the exhibition between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Don Moore in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on Saturday, the former boxer will not have long to wait to return to the ring, as the fight was rescheduled for this Saturday.
Only one week “Money” Mayweather had to wait for his return to the ring, as it will be this May 21 at the same place and against the same opponent he will face.
The heliport of the Burj Al Arab hotel was the place chosen for his exhibition fight, the same place that remains for the fight that will have the one who is considered the best fighter of all time.
This was announced by Mayweather Jr. himself through his social networks, confirming his return to the ring in an evening in which Anderson Silva, one of the UFC’s latest stars, will also participate.
Why was Mayweather’s fight cancelled the previous Saturday?
Everything was all set for Mayweather Jr and Moore to face each other on the helipad the previous Saturday, but the passing of UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan forced its cancellation.
The promoter of the fight, Global Titans, had stated that the event would be rescheduled, and it was only a week apart, so Floyd, undefeated after 50 fights in his career, will have the opportunity to put on the gloves again.
Money made a list of the top 5, who are they?
The week before, Money himself announced in an interview the five best fighters in history, in which he puts himself as number one and left out a legend like Muhammad Ali.
Mayweather placed himself at the top of his list, ahead of fighters like Pernell Whitaker, Roberto “Mano de Piedra” Durn, Larry Holmes and Aaron Pryor.
