Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul finally squared off against each other in an exhibition boxing match on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. With a lot of hype surrounding the match, fans were eagerly excited to see who would come out on top.
For a lot of fans, the boxing match was full of entertainment as both Paul and Mayweather went the distance in the match, which was something many fans did not expect at all. The match was also panned by many for not being a proper boxing match.
Logan Paul had a solid performance in his boxing match as he proved that he could hang with the best of them in the professional boxing world. Both Paul and Mayweather walked out with millions of dollars.
While speaking to Michael Benson, Floyd Mayweather stated that he didn’t take his boxing match against Logan Paul seriously. Mayweather then claimed that he had actually trained seriously, he would have blown out Paul in the first round.
“I did an exhibition with the YouTuber Logan Paul. We had fun. People have gotta know, there’s a difference between a real fight and an exhibition. All I did was work out from time to time. If it was a real fight, it would’ve been a blowout in the first round.”
Logan Paul had made it clear that he wants to square off against Anderson Silva in the future and Silva himself expressed interest in a boxing match as well. Even Paul previously claimed he could’ve knocked out Mayweather had the boxing match been 12 rounds. Regardless, it is unlikely the two will ever cross paths again.
