Sadly, Floyd Mayweather did not knock out Logan Paul

Floyd Mayweather v Logan Paul

YouTuber Logan Paul went the distance against boxing champion Floyd Mayweather on Sunday night, making it through all eight rounds without a knockout.

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.

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.”

For the fight, according to Mayweather, he could end up making $100 million to fight Paul. According to The Sun, Paul has confirmed that he could earn as much as $20 million for Sunday’s event.
