Floyd Mayweather claims Logan Paul fight wasn’t ‘real’ and he would have KO’d YouTuber in first round in pro bout

FLOYD MAYWEATHER claimed his exhibition with Logan Paul was not a ‘real fight’ – and would have won in round one if it was.

The American legend returned to the ring in June for the eight-round spectacle bout, and gave away TWO STONE in doing so.

And Paul scored a huge moral victory after taking it the distance, meaning no winner was technically declared.

But Mayweather has now insisted had the fight been professionally sanctioned, with his 50-0 record on the line, then it would have been a different story.

He said: “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.”

Mayweather, 44, hung up the gloves as a pro in 2017 after beating ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, 33, in ten rounds.


But he has since returned twice, both in exhibitions, and did so firstly against featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23, in 2018.

His most recent ring cameo against social media star Paul, 26, looks to be the final fight of Mayweather’s career.

In an interview with the WBC, at their annual convention in Mexico, he admitted to not missing competing.

Mayweather said: “I’m OK. Floyd Mayweather made a lot of smart investments.

“One of the buildings I own is the tallest commercial building in America. So if you get a chance go to New York and check it out.

“This is my ninth sky scraper.”
