Floyd Mayweather exhibition: Money makes high-speed pad-work look easy in new footage

Floyd Mayweather pad work

Floyd Mayweather looked in incredible shape and with no signs of ring rust as he did some pad work with his coach Gerald Tucker.

Often looking to camera and doing some no look combinations whilst avoiding Tucker’s pads.

Even at 45, Mayweather looked sharp, fast and full of power ahead of his delayed match-up against 42-year-old Don Moore.

The bout was originally scheduled to be fought atop the Burj Al Arab hotel but with the death of 73-year-old UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and the subsequent forty days of mourning things have had to be adjusted.

Mayweather and his team have scrambled to get the fight moved and have succeeded in securing the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi and so the fight will take place Saturday night the 21st May, just a week after the bout was originally due to take place.

Mayweather, the former multiple weight-class world champion, retired with a perfect record, winning all fifty of his professional fights.

His last pro fight was his knockout of Conor McGregor back in 2017, and he has kept himself busy managing his business empire since then.

He owns a NASCAR team aptly named The Money Racing Team, as well as a club and a roller skate park among others.

His passion for boxing remains though, the fight against Moore will be the third exhibition fight he has had since his professional retirement. He has enjoyed comfortable wins in his previous two exhibitions.

The Ultimate Floyd Mayweather Quiz: What his his nickname?

First against Tenshin Nasukawa the undefeated Japanese kickboxer in 2018, and then more recently against Logan Paul the internet personality turned fighter in a fight that went the distance in December 2020.

Don Moore, a former sparring partner of Mayweather’s, should provide a good work out for the former champ.

The crowd will be hoping that the GOAT can put on a performance and win, and Mayweather rarely disappoints.
