Floyd Mayweather will return to the ring this year following his dominant performance against Don Moore in Abu Dhabi. Now fully focused on partaking in exhibition contests against a range of opponents, Mayweather’s ring activities are set to continue in 2022 with no confirmation on who the former pound-for-pound superstar will face next.
This weekend, Mayweather was able to get past Moore, his former sparring partner, with relative ease. The Michigan fighter was in control from start to finish, and after increasing his output in the bout’s second half, Mayweather was able to drop Moore in the final session. After a successful showing against Moore, Mayweather has vowed to compete again.
"I will bring another fight back to the UAE this year, [The opponent] is a secret,” said Mayweather when speaking with Boxing Scene. “I don't want to let the cat out the bag right now, but we have an opponent, and I choose the UAE.
