Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul Tips 


Former five-weight world champion Floyd Mayweather returns the ring to fight YouTuber Logan Paul on at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. 

I’m backing the much younger, much bigger and far stronger Logan Paul to put up an excellent showing in this exhibition. He can last the distance and is value to pull off a major upset. 

  • Mayweather is 50-0 (27 KO’s) as a pro
  • Mayweather is a 5-weight world champion 
  • Paul is 0-1-1 as a fighter

Floyd Mayweather Form


The 44-year old Floyd Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) has held versions of the world title at super featherweight, lightweight, light welterweight, welterweight and light middleweight. 

Mayweather’s 50-0 record is debatable, as he could easily have been declared the loser in his bouts with Castillo (first fight), De La Hoya and Maidana (first fight).

Now in his mid-40s, Mayweather initially retired from boxing in 2015, but returned to the ring in 2017 to fight MMA star Conor McGregor, and in 2018 fought an exhibition against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa. 

Mayweather is a light puncher, with no genuine stoppage win since Ricky Hatton in 2007. In his last contest – the exhibition vs Nasukawa – in 2018, he took on a 5’4” 120 lb 20-year old kickboxing star making his boxing debut. 

While Nasukawa assumed it was a friendly exhibition, Mayweather went after the kid unlike he ever went after his ring rivals, flooring Nasukawa three times for a first round stoppage. 

Logan Paul Form


The 26-year old Logan Paul (0-1) has engaged in just two boxing contests. The first was an amateur “white-collar” fight, the second a legitimate licensed boxing match. 

Both fights were against the same opponent, fellow YouTuber KSI. The first fight in 2018 was ruled a draw, while the second was judged a split decision in KSI’s favour. 

Paul was deducted two points by the referee for manhandling KSI to the floor, and that deduction effectively cost him the fight. 

However, on both occasions Paul appeared to have by far the better boxing skills and technique, but was met head-on by KSI’s aggressive, swarming, brawling tactics.

Verdict

Paul has been training hard for a year for this fight, has youth and size on his side and is value to cause an upset.

Mayweather looked terrible in his last boxing match, his 2017 fight against Conor McGregor. Faced with a large, fit, aggressive young man he has a job on his hands.
