When you are Floyd Mayweather, you are allowed to do just about anything.
Having promised to not return to the ring, Money Mayweather treated the fans to another exhibition fight this past weekend, this time against Don Moore at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi.
While the eight-round affair ended with no winner, Mayweather dominated it for the most part and he could have won if, well, his request had been accepted.
No, it wasn’t your average request. It was a case of him asking for the length of the round to be extended, as per The Mirror.
Yes, he really did that in the middle of the fight and it’s safe to say, it has to be added to the list of his many iconic moments.
Let’s all also wait for Mike Tyson’s take on it because he will surely have some very iconic words, too.
That apart, though, Mayweather has promised his fans in Abu Dhabi another spectacle.
“I would like to thank everybody in the UAE, the media, and everybody who covered this fight,” Mayweather said after the fight.
“This is one of the best countries in the world.
“Don Moore is still undefeated, we are both still undefeated. I will bring another fight back to the UAE this year. It’s a secret. I don’t want to let the cat out the bag right now but we have an opponent, and I choose the UAE.”
Mayweather, who is reported to have earned $100 million from his latest exploit, continues to take easy pay days, and no doubt that will continue in the future.
