Floyd Mayweather will make his return on June 6th to take on YouTuber turned pro boxer Logan Paul in an exhibition fight. Though this fight may seem absurd to many fans this is not the first time Floyd Mayweather has fought someone outside of the boxing world.
Floyd Mayweather has fought the former UFC champion, Conor McGregor, and Kickboxing champion Tenshin Nasukawa in his last two fights. It’s needless to say that he was able to defeat both of them. But, Conor McGregor did have a lot of success against Mayweather, who is arguably the greatest boxer of all time.
When asked whether Logan can take any insights from the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight and apply it to beat Mayweather, Logan Paul said:
“You can watch a lot of Floyd Mayweather tape, you can watch him fight McGregor, over and over again, you watch him fight Tenshin, he is Floyd Mayweather. His arsenal is expansive. Almost probably unlimited even. But I don’t know how much you can truly take away.”

Logan Paul also said that he will easily beat Conor McGregor in a boxing match. Logan made his amateur boxing debut in 2018 and he has 2 fights under his belt so far. Considering his experience and current skill set, it is very ambitious for Logan Paul to believe that he would beat Conor McGregor.
Logan Paul claimed: “But I would say I am not impressed by Conor McGregor’s performance. I truly believe if you put Conor McGregor right now in a sparring session I beat him hands down. McGregor is an MMA fighter. He is okay. He gets gassed easily. Just got his a** kicked by Dustin Poirier. He’s okay.”

Well, both Logan and Jake Paul have shown interest in fighting Conor McGregor on numerous occasions. However, Conor McGregor has not been keen o taking on the Paul brothers. But, if Logan can beat Floyd Mayweather then there is a possibility that we may see this fight.
However, Logan Pal has a huge task ahead of him as he faces Mayweather on June 6th at Hardrock Stadium in Miami. 50 other world-class combat sports athletes have tried to beat Mayweather and none of them were successful. So it would be intriguing to see to what extent Logan Paul can push Floyd Mayweather.
