FLOYD MAYWEATHER dodged punches without even looking while training for his comeback fight.

At one point, Mayweather is not even looking at Tucker but continues to fire off combinations, while ducking and blocking shots.

The 45-year-old unbeaten great instead looks down the camera while showboating.

It comes as Mayweather’s return to the ring – which has been marred in confusion – takes yet another twist.

He was due to face former sparring partner Don Moore, 42, last weekend atop the Burj Al Arab hotel helipad.

But the death of 73-year-old UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan forced the entire event to be called off. 

The UAE’s ministry of presidential affairs had announced a 40-day period of mourning and a three-day suspension of work in all ministries.

It left organisers scrambling to find a new date after the ring was put up only hours before the cancellation. 

Mayweather went on to announce that his comeback fight faced only a seven-day delay and would take place this Saturday, May 21.

But Global Titans Fight Series, who were due to co-promote, denied his claim and said the event would likely be rescheduled to October.

Mayweather then offered up another update and suggested his return WILL be on Saturday, moving less than 100 miles down the road.

He is now set to fight Moore in Abu Dhabi at the Etihad Arena, where the UFC has formerly been held.

It ended extraordinary hopes of hosting the exhibition 700ft above sea level.

At first, just 20-40 VIP guests in attendance, with tickets purchased as NFTs and costing around £150,000.

But Mayweather appears to have packed in the idea of fighting Moore on the Burj Al Arab’s helipad.

His latest undercard is set to feature UFC legend Anderson Silva, 47, in action against Bruno Machado, 35.

Former two-weight world champion Badou Jack, 38, is also due to fight Egyptian Hany Atiyo, also 38.
