Floyd Mayweather is set to make his return to the ring with an exhibition bout against unbeaten fighter 'Dangerous' Don Moore on the helipad of Dubai's Burj Al Arab hotel.

Mayweather, 45, retired from professional boxing in 2017 after beating Conor McGregor to take his pro record to 50-0.

Since then, he has fought in two exhibition bouts against Japanese fighter Tenshin Nasukawa and YouTuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul.

According to TMZ, Mayweather is set to face his former sparring partner Moore over eight rounds in another exhibition bout on May 14, as part of an event dubbed 'The Global Titan Fight Series'.

Moore, 42, holds a professional record of 18-0-1 but hasn’t fought since 2016, when he defeated Reymundo Hernandes.

It is unclear how his fight with Mayweather will be judged, or if a winner will be declared.

Former UFC champion Anderson Silva, 46, also features on the card and will take on fellow Brazilian, Bruno Machado.

Silva beat former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr last June, before securing a first round KO victory over former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz in September.

Former two-weight world champion Badou Jack, 38, is also expected to feature on the card, although his opponent is yet to be confirmed.

Jack, who was signed to Mayweather Promotions between 2013 and 2021, has previously held the WBC super-middleweight and WBA light-heavyweight world titles, and holds a professional record of 25-3-3.

He last fought Samuel Crossed in a cruiserweight bout in November in Dubai, securing a second-round KO win.

All of the fights are set to take place on the helipad of luxurious Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai.

Roger Federer and Andre Agassi famously played tennis on helipad, which is 1053ft in the air, in an exhibition match in 2005.
