Former champion’s fighters vying for NABA Lightweight and WBO Light Heavyweight Titles.
Find A Dream - Boxing star, former world heavyweight champion, and Find A Dream board member Michael Moorer continues his rise as one of the sport’s outstanding trainers with two upcoming title bouts. On Friday, October 12th, Moorer’s highly regarded “Lightning” Rod Salka will fight champ “Dangerous” Dorin Spivey for his NABA Lightweight title in the main event at the Tropicana in Atlantic City. On Friday, November 10th, Moorer’s undefeated Ryan Coyne, the “Irish Outlaw” will challenge Nathan Cleverly for Cleverly’s WBO Light Heavyweight belt at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Moorer, the former WBO, WBA, and IBF heavyweight champion, is expecting outstanding performances from the two fighters and is confident that they will exit the fights with championship belts.
Mercer will also be representing Find A Dream -a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that reaches out to underprivileged children and provides them a healthy channel to find and work towards fulfilling their potential. Moorer, along with other members of the Find a Dream team, is committed to contributing his time, expertise, and experience in working with young people to improve their self confidence, discipline, and sense of worth. Find A Dream team members include boxing legends and celebrities Moorer, Ray Mercer, Hector Camacho Jr., Buddy McGirt, and Al Bernstein.
“I am excited about my involvement with Find A Dream,” said Moorer. “The organization is all about working with underprivileged youth. My main objective is to work with kids and help provide a positive influence in their lives, and Find A Dream has that established platform. I grew up in poverty, and know all about dealing with temptations and the hard choices kids have to make. We didn’t have too many channels or outlets like Find A Dream, so to be able to give back is important and means a lot to me.”
Find A Dream has initiated a youth boxing program for disadvantaged children in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The program will serve the community by providing a positive, creative, and healthy outlet for youth in need of guidance and mentoring.
“Michael Moorer has always been a class act inside and out of the ring,” said Rod Ricciardi, founder of Find A Dream. “He accentuates everything our organization stands for, and we are excited about moving forward and getting him involved. For Michael, as it is with all of our Board Members, it is all about the kids, first and foremost; we all strive to help make a difference, and together we believe we can provide a positive impact on the lives of youth around the world.”
