Logan Paul put up an incredible display of his skills against arguably the greatest boxer of all time in Floyd “Money” Mayweather. The YouTuber turned professional boxer lasted eight rounds against the best to ever grace the boxing ring, and stood face front against Mayweather inside the ring for eight straight rounds, even showing some moments during the fight.
Needless to say, after such a spectacular performance, Logan Paul has earned the respect of many fans. Needless to say, the younger of the Paul brother, Jake took to his social media profile and proclaimed his brother the winner in the fight, as he congratulated his elder brother on an amazing show.
In the video, Jake can be seen cheering for his brother with just 30 seconds left for the bout. Even Floyd Mayweather in the post-fight press conference stated that he was surprised by Logan’s skills and gave credit where its due. The former multi-division boxing champion looked in great spirits and managed to do what would have been an amazing feat if he wasn’t Mayweather. However, there’s every reason to believe that if a boxer can step inside the ring with a guy more than 30 pounds his weight, it’s Floyd Mayweather.
Jake Paul vs Floyd Mayweather a likely possibility
In the post-fight press conference, Floyd Mayweather opened up the idea of fighting Jake Paul and revealed how it could be a likely possibility moving forward, However, Mayweather did not confirm the idea of fighting Jake, but has shown interest in the lead-up to the fight. Should Jake Paul triumph over former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, there’s every reason to believe that Jake Paul could take on Floyd Mayweather next.
However, as of now, Mayweather has not confirmed any bout, and a rematch with Conor McGregor also hangs in balance. Mayweather is 41, and well past his prime, however, the former champion believes that he still has what it takes to compete against the best that the world of MMA has to offer.
Needless to say, Floyd’s return to the boxing ring has just monetary reasons behind it, and all the bouts are being fought as an exhibition. It will be interesting to see what lies ahead for the former champion who has once again stepped into the boxing industry.
