Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather boxed all eight rounds in the exhibition match held tonight at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
Even though just a few believed to see the YouTuber standing on his feet at the end of the fight, that happened, which is why Paul celebrated loudly, taunting the former champion who had a 50-0 record while boxing.
However, various media houses did their scoring, and according to the majority, Mayweather defeated Logan winning at least four more rounds. The analysts have noted that he had 43 shots, fifteen more than Logan. The YouTube star worked relentlessly, even though he didn’t have the needed accuracy to shake Mayweather. He would throw twice as many punches, 217-107, but as said, his percentage was far lower, only 13% compared to Floyd’s 40%.
The arrangement was that there wouldn’t be a decision winner and any scoring. On the other side, the knockout rule was acknowledged, but unfortunately for the fans, that didn’t happen. Also, the match saw the fighters wearing 10-ounce gloves, with three-minute rounds. The Florida State Boxing Commission awarded Samuel Burgos as the referee in the ring.
After the match, Money did admit that his rival was far better than he imagined. He experienced one very tough attack in the second round once a 35-pound heavier opponent sent one furious right hand, which perfectly landed.
After that, Mayweather became more active and focused. He would slowly open up the rival, but couldn’t finish him even though Paul began to rapidly slow down in the sixth round.
Even though many want to see another match, the former champion denied any possibility of making a rematch, nor coming out of retirement to have another official bout. As for Paul, he didn’t specifically say that he wants a rematch but knowing his mentality, the 26-year old wouldn’t have anything against it.
At the moment, the precise profit from this match isn’t revealed, but it is definitely expected to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, in the history of this sport.-->
Lately, the exhibition matches have been generating an enormous amount of money, which is why many former boxers decided to enter the ring against various rivals. That is precisely why mane believes that there just might be the second bout between these two guys.
