Gary Indiana’s “Dangerous” Don Moore hasn’t lost a fight since turning pro in 1999. Mayweather’s longtime training partner during his career, and formerly trained by his late uncle, Roger Mayweather, Moore says he’s in a unique position to give Mayweather big trouble when the two meet in May.
“I’m thrilled to be part of this event,” Moore said. “Because of the same training I got from Roger Mayweather, I’m going to be able to give Floyd real problems. I trained hard to show everyone what ‘Dangerous’ Don Moore is and expose the weaknesses by Floyd. This is my shot, the time is right, Floyd is not invincible. Anyone can be beaten.”

“I can’t wait to fight with my compatriot in the sky!” Silva said. “It will be a great event for all fighters and fans and I can’t wait to put on a great show for everyone. I am honored to share the card with Floyd Mayweather, a true boxing icon. Dubai is a beautiful place and I thank the organizers for inviting me to participate in this epic event.
