Until now, all of Mayweather’s fights have predominantly been held in the USA. However, for this upcoming exhibition, ‘TBE’ is set to go big as this time he will compete at the Burj Al Arab’s helipad, situated in the UAE.

Burj Al Arab is one of the most beautiful skyscrapers in the world, and it is one of the top tourist spots. Moreover, it has a beautiful helipad that covers the view of the sea and other skyscrapers in the background. That said, this seems like one of the finest spots in the world to hold a boxing bout.

Floyd Mayweather will look to make the most out of his time, competing at this stupendous location. For now, there’s no clarity as to whom will he face. However, the YouTuber ‘Money Kicks’ is speculated to be Mayweather’s opponent for this fight.

‘TBE’ knows the power of exhibition bouts, and these fights truly lure in countless fans. In his last fight, Mayweather battled Logan Paul. And now he’s again ready to possibly test himself against a YouTuber at a most incredible location.

Is Floyd Mayweather the first man to take up a boxing activity on Burj Al Arab?

As mentioned above, Burj Al Arab is one of the top-notch locations in the UAE and many biggies have stepped onto its beautiful helipad.
