Floyd, who is one of the greatest boxers of all time, gave his experienced opponent a proper beating.

Moore showed great resistance but was given a boxing lesson by the 45-year-old Mayweather now out of his prime.

Speaking after the fight, Mayweather thanked the organizers and fans in attendance and made assurances to return to Abu Dhabi next year.

He said, "I would like to thank everybody in the UAE, the media, and everybody who covered this 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."
