UAE: Silva, Mayweather to star on Burj Al Arab Helipad

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and UFC star Anderson Silva are set to star in a never-before fight-card that will take place on the Burj Al Arab Helipad in Dubai.

The Hollywood-style spectacle, which is scheduled to be held on May 14, is part of ‘The Global Titan Fight Series’ that will also feature former world champion in two weight classes, Badou Jack, and several promising fighters.

The world’s most famous helipad, which is suspended 212 metres above sea level, is no stranger to high-level sporting action, having previously hosted tennis greats Roger Federer and Andre Agassi in addition to golfing superstars Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy displaying their driving techniques at the skyscraper in 2011.
