Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul tale of the tape: How two stars compare ahead of sensational fight ‘this year’

Multiple reports in America claim they have it on good authority Mayweather will take on Paul as early as this year.

How Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul compare ahead of their fight

But how do the pair stack up? SunSport takes a look…

BOXING CAREERS

MAYWEATHER enjoyed an illustrious career in the boxing ring.

The American, 43, boasts an unblemished, unparalleled 50-0 career record – including 27 KOs.

Money has fought the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Canelo Alvarez to name just a few.

On the other hand, 25-year-old Paul has fought just once professionally – against fellow YouTuber KSI.

The American lost to his British opponent.

PHYSICAL BATTLE

Paul may be bigger than Mayweather but surely he has no chance against Money

WITH over 20 years of experience Mayweather is obviously overwhelming favourite for the fight.

However, Paul does have one advantage – his physical stature.

For his fight against KSI the 6ft 2in star weighed in at a lean, mean 13st 8lb.

Mayweather, meanwhile, tips the scales at around 10st 7lb and is six inches shorter than “The Maverick” at just 5ft 8in.

FANDEMONIUM

AS one of the most famous boxers on the planet, Mayweather is easily one of the most well-known, well-followed celebrities around.

In fact, the Las Vegas star boasts a staggering 23.7million followers on Instagram.

However, Paul is barely outmuscled by Mayweather on the social front, racking up 18.2m followers on Instagram alone – as well as his whopping YouTube fandom.

PREDICTION

LET’S be honest, there will be only one winner.

A 50-0 former world champion vs a YouTube sensation with just one pro fight under his belt – a loss, at that.

Mayweather will surely win via KO – with the only question how long it will take him.

The smart money would be on a first-round knockout from Money.

After all, Mayweather battered Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in just 136 seconds in their 2018 exhibition fight.
