Arguably the greatest boxer of all time, Floyd Mayweather is making his boxing return against Youtube sensation Logan paul as per the reports. Though the sources are not confirmed fans are already buzzing about this odd matchup.
From The Fighting News, Mike Feinberg claimed: “I’ve got some breaking news for you. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is coming out of retirement and has just officially signed a contract to fight in an exhibition match against Logan Paul—YouTube sensation Logan Paul. I don’t understand the fight. Logan Paul has tried his hand at professional boxing—couldn’t the other nobody [that] nobody’s ever heard of before. [Paul’s] now zero and one. He’s going to be fighting one of the best in Floyd Mayweather. It’s going to be a joke of a fight, but it’s signed. It’s official. I heard it from a reputable source today and even saw the signed picture of the signed contract where Floyd signed on the dotted line for this exhibition match.:”
Should Floyd Mayweather fight Logan paul?
Floyd Mayweather has beaten some of the greatest boxers of this generation including Manny Pacquiao. He is unbeaten in his long illustrious career despite facing numerous tough opponents. However, he has been part of such odd fights before.
Floyd Mayweather fought UFC superstar Conor McGregor in one of the biggest combat sports spectacles ever. Mayweather also fought a decorated kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, who was multiple weight classes below him. And now if he fights Logan Paul who has not fought any experienced pro boxer yet then fans are not going to be so excited about it.
Fans will welcome Mayweather to the ring without a doubt. However, fighting someone like Logan Paul does not glorify his legacy. However, as per reports, this bout is going to be an exhibition fight.
However, Floyd Mayweather brutally knocked down Tenshin Nasukawa multiple times in a fight which was supposed to be n exhibition fight. Mayweather has shown interest in a rematch with Conor McGregor or a dream fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov before. Though both of this fight is likely to end in Mayweather getting his hands raised it would be way bigger than a fight against Logan Paul.
As per now, we are yet to hear any confirmation from the team of Floyd Mayweather or Logan paul.
