Mayweather & Anderson Silva booked to return to boxing on the same card

Floyd Mawyeather Jr and Anderson Silva are reportedly going to be part of the same boxing card during the exhibition boxing event scheduled for next month.

Floyd Mayweather Jr has retired from his professional boxing career after he boxed MMA star Conor McGregor in 2017. However, Mayweather is far from actual retirement considering he’s more than willing to participate in exhibitions. Mayweather’s most recent boxing event was last year against celebrity boxer Jake Paul. This time, the 40-year-old will face his former sparring partner Don Moore.

The two will headline the event called ‘The Global Titans Fight Series’. This event will be held on May 14 and will take place on a helicopter landing pad in Dubai. They are scheduled to exchange blows in an eight-round exhibition match. Mayweather was initially in talks to box a local star.

Even though Moore’s stardom doesn’t match Mayweather, Mayweather shouldn’t take it lightly. Moore is undefeated with a record of 18-0-1. He also won 12 of his boxing matches via knockouts.

The UFC legend turned boxer Anderson Silva will also participate in this event. ‘The Spider’ retired from the UFC in 2020 with a pretty bad record. However, the 46-year-old Brazilian is still active as a boxer. In 2021 he boxed Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (a former world champion) and fellow UFC veteran Tito Ortiz. Anderson Silva is widely regarded as one of greatest UFC fighters of all time due to the fact he held the middleweight title for the longest time.

Former UFC middleweight champion will face UAE Warriors champion Bruno Machado. Additionally, former boxing world champion Badou Jack is also expected to perform during the card.
