Mayweather Made The Money In Fight With Logan Paul


YouTube star-turned-prizefighter Logan Paul went the distance with Floyd Mayweather for eight rounds in an exhibition match at Hard Rock Stadium.

"He's better than I thought he was," Mayweather said of Paul. "... I was surprised by him tonight. Good work. Good little guy."

The exhibition was scheduled for eight rounds, with no judges and no official winner, though knockouts were legal.

The Florida State Boxing Commission did not sanction the fight, due to the disparity in size and experience level. The bout, which will not go on either man's professional record, but was promoted by Mayweather Promotions and distributed by Showtime pay-per-view.

"I don't want anyone to tell me anything is impossible ever again," Paul said. "The fact that I'm in here with one of the best boxers of all times proves the odds can be beat."

ESPN scored the bout 78-74 for Mayweather. He landed 43 total punches to Paul's 28, of those 43 36 were power shots, while Paul landed 21 power shots.

Mayweather said his goal for the fight was to give people a show, while Paul was "fighting to survive."

Mayweather, who has been retired since a 2017 fight against UFC superstar Conor McGregor, was 50-0 as a pro, while Paul was 0-1. Paul lost his pro debut to fellow YouTube star KSI in 2019.
