Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul Ends in Boos As Each Fighter Makes Millions in ‘Sparring Session’
- Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul’s bout has been criticised by fans who were privileged to be at the venue during the encounter
- Despite raking in millions of dollars, both boxers barely inflicted any injury on each other as they wandered around in the ring
- The fight went the entire 8 rounds and in the end, no winner was declared despite that Mayweather would have won
The ‘Special Exhibition’ bout between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul has ended as fans boo both boxers over what they described as ‘sparring session’, Guardian reports.
It was a fight between one of the greatest boxers ever as well as a very popular YouTube personality Logan Paul as it lasted the 8-round duration.
Fans at the venue were particularly not impressed as it ended in predictable fashion on Sunday night with Logan and Mayweather dancing around the ring.
The 44-year-old Mayweather retired from professional boxing with a perfect 50 wins from 50 fights but came back to the ring for an eight-round “special exhibition” against Paul, who has found fame as a YouTube personality with 66m social media followers.
Mayweather beat the likes of Manny Pacquiao, Canelo Álvarez and Ricky Hatton in a Hall of Fame boxing career. Paul once got to the fourth week of The Masked Singer.
He could have ended this particular fight early enough, but he chose to give his audience a fight that is worth their money.
Paul showed a glimpse of power and precision in the first round throwing a few jabs as his biggest mistake came in the fourth when he landed few jabs on Mayweather.
Although Mayweather would have won the tie, but there were no judges as it was an exhibition.
“I had fun, I’m not 21 anymore. He’s a great, young fighter better than I thought he was. He’s a tough raw competitor, I was surprised by him tonight.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Floyd Mayweather gave YouTuber Jake Paul a taste of what he planed to dish out to Paul Logan at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami when they face off in an exhibition fight on June 6.
The 24-year-old American internet superstar who has been valued at around $11.5 million was left with a black eye and lip during their press conference for the fight next month.
But while they were face-to-face saying nasty things to themselves, Jake escalated the situation by removing Floyd's cap ad the 44-year-old didn't take it likely as he was seen teaching him some valuable lessons.
