"With the ability I have to escape hits and with the excellent training I have, I would become a Floyd Mayweather in front of Nonito Donaire. I assure you that it would be very difficult to hit me," Moreno told sports section 10 Deportivo of El Panama America daily.

On Sunday, Donaire knocked out Mexican Fernando "Kochulito" Montiel in Las Vegas, United States, winning the titles of the World Box Council and of the World Box Organization.
