Mayweather vs Moore Fight Card : Update , Teh Spider on the card

Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. will make his return to the squared circle for a special eight-round exhibition match against fellow undefeated pugilist “Dangerous” Don Moore. They’ll do battle in the Global Titans Fight Series pay-per-view (PPV) main event, booked for Sat., May 14, 2022 atop the helicopter landing pad at Burj Al Khalifa Hotel in Dubai.

Mayweather (50-0), who turned 45 back in February, was last seen boxing up social media star Logan Paul last June in Miami. Prior to that, “Money” flew to Japan to school kickboxing phenom Tension Nasukawa under the RIZIN banner. His latest offering has been priced on the economical side, a mere $29.99 on the FITE streaming service.
“Don will come to fight,” Mayweather said during the kickoff press conference. “It’s a little different. Don is going to come and fight and may the best man win. Whereas at the Hard Rock Stadium, Logan Paul talked a good game but didn’t come to fight, he came to hold. So, he’s coming to fight, I’m coming to fight. Eight rounds, from start to finish, it’s going to be explosive”

Moore (18-0-1), a former sparring partner of Mayweather, is no stranger to the “Money” team, having previously been trained by his opponent’s late uncle Roger Mayweather. The 45 year-old Indianan has not seen action since registering a second-round knockout over super welterweight journeyman DeShaun Williams back in late 2016.
“Floyd is going to understand and figure out that I’m no Logan Paul and I am not one that you have seen before,” Moore told SunSport. “We’ve sparred and I showcased my talent but on May 14, I’m not no sparring partner and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I’m in here to kick ass and that’s what I’m going to do, I’m a fighter.”

Elsewhere on the card, former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva returns to the ring to battle fellow Brazilian bruiser Bruno Machado. In addition, former super middleweight champion Badou Jack trades leather with Egyptian cruiserweight Hany Atiyo, while former women’s lightweight champion Delfine Persoon collides with fast-rising French phenom Elhem Mekhaled for the WBC women’s super featherweight title.

So he’s sparring his actual long time sparring partner and charging for it

Boxing event featuring Floyd Mayweather, Anderson Silva cancelled

Exhibition boxing bouts involving Floyd Mayweather and former UFC champion Anderson Silva scheduled to take place in Dubai on Saturday has been cancelled.

Mayweather was set to face Don Moore in an exhibition bout to cap off the event, but that will no longer be happening following the death of United Arab Emirates president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, which was first reported by TMZ. The UAE has put into a place a three-day suspension of work due to the tragedy.

Silva was paired up with Bruno Machado in the next step of his now flourishing career in the world of boxing. “The Spider” made quite the impression in his return to the squared circle after parting ways with the UFC, going 2-0 in 2021 with wins over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. via split decision, and a ferocious first-round KO of Tito Ortiz at September’s Triller Fight Club event that was headlined by Vitor Belfort vs. Evander Holyfield.

No word on if the event will be rescheduled, although the TMZ report states there’s a possibility the card could move to next week.
