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 Hoops Plug, Floyd Mayweather talked about not taking his boxing match against Logan Paul seriously at all. While doing so, he misremembers his opponent as he said he fought against Jake Paul instead of Logan Paul.
‘If I wanna go pick up some backpack money. If I want to go pick up $10 million, $20 million, $30 million, 100, I can go to exhibition. It’s not even on my record. You know a lot of people talking about ‘Oh, that Jake Paul’.
Man, listen, it wasn’t a real fight. All I was doing, just every once in a while go to the gym, sit-ups, hit the heavy bag then go.”
Mayweather also previously claimed that he would have blown out Logan Paul in the first round if he took their fight seriously. 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.
