Retired MMA star Ben Askren will be making his debut in the world of professional boxing against Jake Paul this month. Prior to his upcoming match, Askren decided to give his prediction for a possible exhibition fight between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather.
While speaking on Logan Paul’s podcast ‘Impaulsive‘, Ben Askren shared his thoughts as to how a match between Paul and Mayweather would go down. Using the 2017 bout between Mayweather and Conor McGregor as an example, Askren explained how Logan Paul stands no chance against Mayweather, who is simply the best in the world.
“I thought it was going to happen in February but then it didn’t happen… Logan, that ain’t going to go very well for you. He [Floyd Mayweather] is the best in the world.”
“Floyd carried Conor [McGregor] for nine rounds, sure he is going to carry Logan for a few… who had a puncher’s chance against Floyd… name anybody? I think there is only one person who knocked him down… If Floyd had been knocked out maybe I would agree with you”
Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather was supposed to take place in February of this year, but in January, Paul announced that the match had to be postponed due to contract negotiation issues. We will have to see when the two will square off against each other in the future.
