What They Say:

Mayweather: “Don will come to fight. It’s a little different. Don is going to come and fight and may the best man win. Whereas at the Hard Rock Stadium, Logan Paul talked a good game but didn’t come to fight, he came to hold. So, he’s coming to fight, I’m coming to fight. Eight rounds, from start to finish, it’s going to be explosive

Moore: "I have been training hard to show everyone what ‘Dangerous’ Don Moore is all about and expose Floyd’s weaknesses. This is my shot. The time is now, Floyd isn’t invincible. Anyone can be beaten. I am always trying to push the envelope and if something is brought to my attention that has a unique aspect to it, I am always interested.

“Having a fight on the helipad of the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai and the opportunity to be the star of the show is going to be something I will remember always. People all over the world can buy the PPV and watch us fight high above, almost in the sky.”
