The Mayweather vs. Moore fight is more about the spectacle than the results. Though less well-known than Mayweather, Moore’s professional career is nothing to scoff at: Like Mayweather, More boasts an undefeated record of 18-0-1 (including 12 knock-outs), with a career that lasted from 1999 to 2016.
Also have a history together, as the two used to be sparring partners and Moore was even trained by Mayweather’s uncle, Roger Mayweather. Moore is undoubtedly very familiar with Mayweather’s style — and is likely training harder than Mayweather (the latter admitted to a lax training regimen before the Logan Paul bout) — so there is a chance that Moore could do some damage. Still, most are predicting a win for Mayweather.
There are some other great fights on the Mayweather vs. Moore undercard, including a standout fight between UFC champion Anderson Silva and Bruno Machado. Anderson “The Spider” Silva returned to boxing after leaving the UFC in 2020, recently defeating Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Tito Ortiz. The Mayweather vs. Moore undercard will also see Delfine Persoon vs. Maiva Hamadouche and Badou Jack vs. Hany Atiyo — both of which should be exciting bouts.
