FLOYD MAYWEATHER is reportedly ready to return to the ring again for another exhibition fight – and it will be outside of the Dubai’s Burj Al Arab Hotel.
The 45-year-old, who retired from boxing with a 50-0 record after defeating Conor McGregor, is allegedly set to face “Dangerous” Don Moore, 42, on a helicopter pad outside one of the planet’s top hotels.
The American will face the 18-0-1 fighter in an exhibition on May 14, according to TMZ Sports.
The event is being dubbed “The Global Titan Fight Series” and it will be over eight rounds.
And Mayweather is set to be the main event in the first show of the new event.
Moore boxed professionally from 1999 to 2016.

Silva has tasted victory in the ring previously, defeating former pro boxer Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in June 2021.
He has also faced Tito Ortiz and knocked out the former UFC champion.
And ex-boxing champion Badou Jack (25-3-3) is also due to appear on the fight card.
But it will be the return of Mayweather that will secure that the eyes of the world are watching the event, which is being put on by FrontRow and ROQU.
It will be the first time he has taken part in an exhibition fight since last June.
Mayweather officially retired in 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor and extending his record to a historic 50-0.
But it was NOT the final time fans saw the pay-per-view king in the ring, as he has fought in two exhibition comebacks since.
He first returned in Tokyo on December 31, 2018, beating Japanese featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23, in one round.
Then last June Mayweather was taken the distance by YouTuber Logan Paul, 26, who weighed TWO STONE more in the eight-rounder.
