Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather's next exhibition fight is set to be on a helipad on top of the luxury five-star Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai.

Following his fight with Logan Paul last year, Mayweather is set to face YouTube star 'Money Kicks' on February 20th.

This unique venue is no stranger to boxing after previously holding an Anthony Joshua open workout.

Mayweather confirmed the news in press conference and is looking forward to showcasing his talent to fans in the Middle East.

"We will be doing a special limited edition boxing showcase right here on the helipad – February 20," Mayweather said.

"It's always been a goal of mine to come to the UAE and put on a show and display my talent for the people in the Middle East.

"We haven't chosen an opponent yet, but we will let the people know who the opponent will be. We may do more than one fight, we wanna give the people some entertainment.

"I don't like to call what I'm doing a fight, I like to call it a limited edition boxing showcase. it's bigger than just boxing."

The Middle East is quickly becoming a major destination for big fights after Saudi Arabia hosted Joshua's rematch with Andy Ruiz in 2019 and the country was also in the running for the heavyweight showdown between Joshua and Tyson Fury last year before the deal fell apart.
