Floyd Mayweather proved he hasn’t lost a step on the pads by hosting an Instagram Live workout after announcing his upcoming exhibition fight.
The retired boxing legend is set to return to the ring for an eight-round bout with Don Moore on May 14 at the helipad atop the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Mayweather left boxing in 2017 after going 50-0 with his victory over Conor McGrgeor.
However, he returned for a New Years exhibition with Tenshin Nasukawa in Tokyo, Japan in late 2018, which he won by knockout.
Floyd followed that up with his June 2021 show with Logan Paul in Miami, a contest that went the full distance of eight rounds and left many fans disappointed as no dramatic knockout finish was delivered.
Now, while he’s back, Mayweather is keen to show he still has it and so put on an electrifying display on the pads during an Instagram Live session to prove his point.
Floyd then addressed critics of his upcoming exhibit directly and said, “Dubai, I’m going to pick up a few bucks.
“You know they’re upset because I’m able to get the most out of the game, I’m smart, I kept all my faculties, I made a lot of smart investments.
“Great people like Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, the Waltons, owners of Walmart and Walgreens.
“When they get money in their 50s, 60s, 60s, 80s and even 90s, it’s fine.
“But a young kid like me from the inner city, from the ghetto – I worked my way up from the top.
“I was able to leave boxing on my own terms and keep all my faculties, I kept a lot of my money.
“So they’re upset that I can go in there and still make $40 million, $50 million, $60 million.
“You can’t get angry, that’s what God wanted. All I do is enjoy the fruits of my labor.
