Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition fight in Dubai was canceled after the death of United Arab Emirates President, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
As of today, the fight is officially back on and scheduled for Saturday, May 21.
Mayweather shared the updated flyer on his Instagram today. His opponent is supposed to remain Don Moore. According to the flyer, Anderson Silva is also still on the card.
The fight was initially set to take place on May 14, but all businesses shut down across the country after the president’s death.
The Global Titans Fight Series released a statement following his death.
“Out of deepest respect and due to these unforeseen circumstances of Force Majeure, the Global Titans Dubai event, which was scheduled to take place on May 14th at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah has been postponed until further notice, with a new date to be announced very soon. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and reassure fans that this spectacular event will be staged in future.”
This fight will mark the third time Floyd has boxed since retiring in 2017 to beat Conor McGregor. He also fought Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018 and Logan Paul in 2020.
