He asked for longer rounds

Mayweather was taken the distance by former training partner Don Moore when the pair went eight two-minute rounds in an exhibition clash in the Middle East.

The fight was supposed to take place last Saturday, but was delayed after the death of UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan.

The skills gap between the two boxers became evident as the fight progressed, with Mayweather using his speed advantage to outbox Moore in the early exchanges. ‘Money’ continued to put on a show and winked at the camera as he called for three-minute rounds in the middle stages.

Moore was being outclassed by Mayweather, who landed one of his best combinations of the fight in the fifth round. The former five-weight world champion made sure to entertain the crowd by dancing with the ring girls and responding to the commentary team in the middle of the fight.

With just 30 seconds left in the fight, Mayweather knocked Moore down with a body shot. He went for the kill as the fight came to an end, leaving Moore desperately backpedaling to survive the eight-round distance.

“I would like to thank everyone in the UAE, the media and everyone who covered this fight,” Mayweather said after the final bell. “This is one of the best countries in the world.

“Don Moore is still undefeated, we’re both still undefeated. I will bring another fight to the UAE this year. It’s a secret. I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag right now, but we have an opponent and I choose the UAE,” Money continued.

Floyd Mayweather’s next exhibition

One potential opponent for Mayweather’s next exhibition is boxing legend Amir Khan, who announced his retirement after his stoppage loss to Kell Brook. Mayweather, who is expected to have earned around $100 million for his latest feat, recently told Khan that he should not have retired.
