Moore credits his relationship and trust with Split-T Management’s CEO David McWater with his decision to sign with the company.
“I signed with Split-T Management because of David McWater. I am very excited to have someone like him to guide my professional career.

“He has always believed in me and came through with everything he has promised.”
Said David McWater, “By the 2013 National Golden Gloves and I thought he was the best fighter in the tournament. He was so exciting of a fighter, and he was clearly the best amateur in the country at that time. At one point, he was undefeated for a 30 month period. He is a great fighter and a great guy and I’m thrilled to be part of his professional career.”
Moore, who was stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado will continue to live there and train with world class trainer, Dickie Wood in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
“Living and training here is so beneficial for my career” says Moore. I’m living and training thousands of feet above sea level. I’m a gym rat as it is, but training here where the air so thin, makes me have such an advantage over my opponents because I will never got tired. I’m learning new things from Mr. Wood every day and I can’t wait to put my boxing on display for the world to see.”
Wood, who has worked with many world champions in the past, including: Stevie Johnston, Oleg Maskaev, Diego “Chico” Corrales, and Buddy McGirt, feels he has a budding superstar in his hands.
“He is a multi-talented fighter with a blend of skills, speed and power. I truly believe he can become world champion in two years!” Says Wood.
” I have worked with several world champions in the past and his talents are comparable to them at this early a stage of his career.”
Moore agrees, “I see myself becoming a world champion and being a superstar in this sport. I live, eat, sleep boxing and will be the most exciting fighter to watch in today’s game. I’m a throwback fighter, and will remind everyone of Sugar Ray Leonard and Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker because I do things in the ring that fighters just don’t do anymore since the 80’s.”
