Floyd Mayweather stole a ring girl’s job by grabbing her card and dancing with her during his exhibition with Don Moore.
The boxing legend returned to the ring for the first time since going the eight round distance with YouTube star Logan Paul last year. He dropped and dominated his former sparring partner Moore during a complete mismatch in the Middle East which showed a vast difference in the skillsets of both fighters.
During the fight Mayweather began to showboat and at the end of the sixth round, he decided to steal the card being held by the ring girl to mark the start of the following period. He paraded it to the fans around the ring holding it high above his head, which was met with cheers from the crowd.
Upon returning the card, Mayweather proceeded to dance with the girl who smiled and joked with the boxing legend, who was clearly enjoying every second of his lucrative boxing ‘showcase’. The 42-year-old had a reason to be supremely confident having dominated from start to finish.
The fight began with a clear skill-gap between the pair as the boxing legend used his speed and fast hand in the early stages. He later continued to act the showman as he winked at the camera and called an extension of the time to three-minute rounds when approaching the midway point.
The American let his hands go in the fifth round landing his most promising combinations, shortly before his series of entertaining gestures. Mayweather dropped his opponent with just 30 seconds remaining of the final round.

Moore desperately threw tame shots back, clinging on on to survive the eight-round distance. Both men embraced upon the conclusion of the bout with no official result announced despite Mayweather’s swagger at the final bell clear for everyone to see.
He was delighted with his performance and promised fans another exhibition outing is already in the pipeline. “I would like to thank everybody in the UAE, the media, and everybody who covered this fight. This is one of the best country’s in the world,” Mayweather said after the fight.
“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. “I told the fans I’m here to entertain, have fun. Don, he’s undefeated as I say, a great fighter. He’ll always be a champion in my heart.”
A list of opponents will likely form to earn a generous payday to share the ring with the retired star. Amir Khan has held talks with the star while holidaying in Dubai and could be open to his maiden exhibition.
