New Date Confirmed For Floyd Mayweather Vs. Don Moore Exhibition Fight
Even when Floyd Mayweather is a retired boxer, he knows how to attract headlines.
The former boxing legend has been on course to return to action in an exhibition fight with Don Moore. However, the fight has now been rescheduled for this coming Saturday, May 21.
The reason for the delay is the death of the UAE’s President, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The former UAE president died at the age of 73, which was mourned by the entire nation.
UAE’s ministry of presidential affairs announced a schedule of 40 days of mourning and three days of suspension from work across all ministries.
As a result, the exhibition fight between Mayweather and Moore couldn’t take place on May 14.
However, the suspension of work is finished, which means that the exhibition fight can be rescheduled. Mayweather announced on his social media accounts that the highly anticipated exhibition fight will take place on May 21.
The venue of the fight remains unchanged — the helipad on top of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. However, it’s unclear if the undercard will also have a similar fate.
