Floyd Mayweather Jr. impressed once again in his exhibition fight with Don Moore on Saturday night in Abu Dhabi.

The pair went the full eight rounds, but it was the former multi-weight world champion who dominated. 

After a 50-50 opening round, Mayweather got to work and toyed with his opponent. 

It was clear the 45-year-old boxing legend was having fun inside the ring, which even saw him talking to the ringside commentators and dancing with the ring card girl. But as the fight entered the latter stages, Mayweather wanted to put on a show for the crowd inside the Etihad Arena. 

Mayweather was finding success with numerous combinations and even floored Moore in the final round with a brutal left hook to the body, but that wasn't enough to stop the fight early.
