- Floyd Mayweather will now compete against Don Moore this weekend in an exhibition match
- UFC legend Anderson Silva is also featured on the card
A week ago, Floyd Mayweather was forced to cancel his original show date due to the death of UAE president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Global Titans had issued a statement informing fans of their decision to reschedule the event.
Now, the retired boxer will take to the ring this Saturday for his debut show under the promotion.
Floyd Mayweather will compete this weekend
Former five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather will take on his former sparring partner Don Moore this Saturday, May 21. Originally scheduled to be held a week prior, the event has also been moved to Yas Island in Abu Dhabi following the death of the country’s president. The event was supposed to take place at the Burj Al Arab hotel helipad before the update.
Anderson Silva remains on the card that seems to be largely unchanged from the initial plans. ‘The Spider’ will square off against Bruno Machado in the co-main event of the night.
Former super-middleweight world champion Badou Jack will return against Egyptian cruiserweight Hany Atiyo alongside former women’s lightweight world champion Delfine Persoon, who will fight rising Frenchwoman Elhem Mekhaled.
‘Money’ charging $1500 for private calls
As an undefeated boxer who goes by the nickname ‘Money’, Floyd Mayweather has had no problems when it comes to flaunting his wealth online. The 45-year-old Hall of Famer has seen himself land in multiple disputes recently regarding issues with his finances.
YouTube sensation Logan Paul put Mayweather on blast for not paying him the agreed sum from their exhibition bout last year. His younger brother Jake claimed that ‘Money’ was broke and owed money to a lot of people. Jake also alleged that Mayweather owes money to the IRS due to unpaid taxes on his earnings.

Now, Mayweather is charging $1,500 for online meet-and-greets adding fuel to the fire of him being strapped on cash.
From the upcoming event, Mayweather expects to get another eight-figure check but it’s unclear what exactly is going on behind the scenes when it comes to his finances.
