Floyd Mayweather is boxing this Saturday!

The event, in which Floyd Mayweather was scheduled to perform last weekend, was canceled because the President of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, died suddenly, and it was originally assumed that the event would take place after 40 days of mourning the president's death.

However, the event was postponed for only a week, thus honoring the three days without work after the death of the president. For Floyd Mayweather, who is currently 45, this will be his first fight since last year’s exhibition with YouTube star Logan Paul.

His opponent is Dan Moore, and the fight is of an exhibition character. Dan Moore was a serious boxer as evidenced by his perfect 18-win unbeaten run, and retired in 2016. The fight will take place at the "Global Titan Fight Series" event on the heliport, which is used for helicopter takeoff and landing.

A ticket is worth 150 thousand euros

Only 20 people who decided to buy a ticket worth 150 thousand euros will attend the Floyd Mayweather exhibition fight live. The famous boxer claims that he was paid a million dollars just to appear at the press conference, and the total earnings from the whole event should have brought him about 100 million dollars.

For Fight Hype, he boasted of his financial achievement. "Sixteen minutes and I am able to get eight and nine figures from the fruits of my labour," he said "Once again I am not hurting for my money, I am far from hurting for money.

I didn't retire from getting money." Former UFC champion and MMA fighter Anderson Silva is still part of the event thus successfully continuing his boxing career. Anderson Silva has had four boxing matches so far, three of which he won, and was defeated once.

He had his first boxing match back in 1998, and seven years later he had his second match. After that, Silva excelled in his MMA career, winning the UFC title in 2006 against Rich Franklin and defending it as many as 10 times.

For the first time, his opponent was former world boxing champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., whom Silva completely outplayed. In the next match, he knocked out former UFC champion Tito Ortiz in the first round.
