There was no official decision because of the fight’s exhibition status, but if you were to add up all the times Paul hugged Mayweather to avoid getting pummeled, then Mayweather would have definitely been crowned the winner.
ESPN scored the match 78-74 for Floyd. He landed 43 total punches to Logan‘s 28. Floyd also landed 17 shots to the body compared to Logan‘s one shot.
Held at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, the exhibition fight was available to watch on Showtime pay-per-view for $49.99. The show did have technical difficulties, as there seemed to be some Showtime server issues during the fight.
A Showtime spokesperson also attested to the issue and said personnel are actively solving the problem. “We are aware that some customers have been having trouble accessing tonight’s Pay Per View event on SHOWTIME.com. We are working diligently to resolve the issue and will redress customers appropriately,” the spokesperson said.
Paul declared his performance a moral win, saying after the fight, “I don’t want anyone to tell me anything is impossible ever again. The fact that I’m in here with one of the best boxers of all times proves the odds can be beat.”
Mayweather agreed. “He’s better than I thought he was,” the boxing champ, who had been retired since a 2017 match against UFC fighter Conor McGregor, told the press. “I was surprised by him tonight. Good work. Good little guy.” Added Mayweather, “I had some fun.”
