DON MOORE has vowed to be the first man to end Floyd Mayweather’s unbeaten record – before turning his attention to a fight with Jake Paul.
The 42-year-old, who himself has never tasted defeat inside the ring, faces former sparring partner Mayweather in an eight-round exhibition bout in Dubai this weekend.

The pair will square off on the HELIPAD outside Dubai’s iconic Burj Al Arab Hotel.
Moore, who hasn’t fought professionally since 2016, has told SunSport how he aims to finally step out of Mayweather’s shadow.
And he plans on sensationally stealing the spotlight from his old friend with a sickening upset 700ft above sea level this Saturday.
Mayweather is aware of the danger that Moore possesses, claiming he cannot take the 18-0 fighter “lightly” for the dust-up.

Speaking ahead of the exhibition affair, Moore has confidently stated he has what it takes to win.
He said: “I’m going to stay on Mayweather’s chest and it’s going to be toe to toe action. This is an exhibition, but he’s trained hard, I’ve trained hard.
“We’re going to give the fans a great fight, a great performance. It’s going to be toe to toe in the centre of the ring. Pure boxing. You’re going to see similar styles.
“You’re going to see ferociousness from both fighters. This is unfinished business – Floyd knows I’m a problem and he can be beaten like any other fighter.

“I’m humble but I’m also a fighter, so this is business not personal.
“I can be the first man to beat Floyd Mayweather. I have the blueprint. Roger Mayweather, Floyds’ uncle, prepared me to beat anyone.
“My style of fighting and what I do in the ring, nobody has seen, because I haven’t had that perfect opportunity to showcase my talent.
“But now I’m blessed to be able to fight in Dubai and showcase the talent that I have, showcase the undefeated fighter that I am, against Floyd Mayweather in front of the whole world.
“It’s going to be action packed. Don’t go get no popcorn. Don’t blink.”
Moore then expressed his desire to pit his wits against YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul, who has won all five of his fights since turning pro.
He remarked: “I’m blessed to be in this position and I’m blessed to showcase my talent against one of the best fighters in the world. I’m not just fighting any other fighter.

“I’m fighting the best fighter in the world. So I’m really thankful. I’m humble. But I’m also a fighter. I’m also a winner. I’m undefeated.
“I would then like to fight Jake Paul in Nigeria. I’m focused on this fight first. But after this fight, I will show the world that Jake is just a YouTuber.
“He’s interested in the business with boxing, but he’s no boxer. I’m a real fighter. I’m a real champ and not pretend. Fight me. You’re fighting other guys.
“They’re not real boxers. You never fought a real boxer. So fight me. I want to fight Jake Paul and that’s easy work for me.
“I want to show everybody that he’s just a YouTuber, and that you can’t play boxing.”
