, Logan Paul left ex-Floyd Mayweather opponent Victor Ortiz in ‘shock and awe’ after KO in sparring

LOGAN PAUL left ex-Floyd Mayweather opponent Victor Ortiz in ‘shock and awe’ after the YouTuber knocked out a sparring partner.

Paul lured Mayweather out of retirement last year in a blockbuster bout at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.

The YouTuber earned a draw after the eight-round contest.

And he did so after help from former welterweight champion Ortiz in training.

And in an interview with MMAFighting, Ortiz claimed the YouTuber KO’d the last of three sparring partners in the final round of their session.

It was a stark reminder of what Paul is capable of in the boxing ring, despite his lack of experience.

Ortiz said before the bout: “Mind you, these are full-on professional boxers. “I sat back in shock and awe.

“He was so composed and relaxed. He used his reach perfect – took a little step, hook down the middle, sleep. Night-night.

“My only complaint there is that he didn’t read him a bedtime story.

“I know what I know, and I know what I see. What I’m saying, in a sense, is that he will give Floyd trouble.”

Mayweather retired as a pro in 2017 after he stopped UFC star Conor McGregor in ten rounds.

But, like he did in 2018 against featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, the 45-year-old returned for an exhibition bout

And he faced internet sensation Paul, 27, who lost his pro debut in 2019 against internet foe KSI by split-decision.
