Loyd Mayweather’s exhibition fight against former sparring partner Don Moore has been canceled following the death of the UAE President.
The couple were due to meet in a ring on Saturday night at the helipad of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, 700 feet above sea level. Only 20 tickets were available for the event, each available only in as an NFT and costing around £150,000.
However, following the death of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, a three-day work suspension was announced and a 40-day mourning period.
It was to be Mayweather’s first fight since his fight against Logan Paul at another exhibition last June in Miami. This time his opponent was Moore, 42, a longtime training partner of Mayweather during his professional career.
Also featured are UFC legend Anderson Silva, former two-weight world champion Badou Jack and former women’s lightweight titleholder Delfine Persoon.
There has been no official confirmation yet that the card has been postponed, so no news as to whether it will be rescheduled in the near future.
