Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be making a return to boxing in May with reports that he will be part of an exhibition boxing match to be held in Dubai.

However, TMZ Sports reveals that Mayweather’s next fight will be held on a different stage – a literal helicopter landing pad in Dubai.

The undefeated boxer will be facing “Dangerous” Don Moore in an eight-round exhibition clash set for May 14. The event is billed as “The Global Titans Fight Series” with Mayweather unsurprisingly holding down the inaugural card.

Although it was not mentioned, the undefeated and retired boxer is likely to make another huge payday. He will be up against an interesting opponent with the 42-year-old Moore undefeated with 18 wins, and 12 coming of knockouts.

Additionally, Mayweather is not the only name that will participate in the May 14 event that will be held at one of the top hotels in the United Arab Emirates – the Burj Al Arab Hotel.

It will also be the first time that Mayweather will return to boxing since June. At the time, the 45-year-old faced YouTuber Logan Paul. No winner was declared and the fight was not spared from heavy criticism.

As for the upcoming fight, it was also not mentioned how it will be judged. The event will be put on by FrontRow and ROQU ... in conjunction with Mayweather Promotions.

Anderson Silva, one of the well-known names in mixed martial arts, will also be in action. He will face Brazilian star, Bruno Machado.

Considered one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time, Silva also faced Tito Ortiz before winning via split-decision over Chavez Jr. in June.

Another familiar name taking part in the “The Global Titans Fight Series” is Badou Jack although his opponent has yet to be known.

In 2019, Floyd was hit with criticisms after he shut down a fan asking to snap a picture with him as he was exiting a venue with his girlfriend.  Cliff Hawkins/Getty Images
