Logan Paul is getting credit this week for going the distance with Floyd Mayweather, but footage seems to suggest that he really did not and got major help from the undefeated boxer.
YouTube star-turned-prizefighter Logan Paul went the distance with Floyd Mayweather — all eight rounds — on Sunday night in an entertaining exhibition boxing match at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
Somebody posted a clip on social media showing the moment Floyd connected with a vicious punch that had Paul wobbly, but he got held up by Mayweather.
Check it out:
“He’s better than I thought he was,” Mayweather said of Paul. “… I was surprised by him tonight. Good work. Good little guy.”
There were no judges and no official winner read as the Florida State Boxing Commission did not officially sanction the fight — due to the large disparity in size and experience level.
“I don’t want anyone to tell me anything is impossible ever again,” Paul said. “The fact that I’m in here with one of the best boxers of all times proves the odds can be beat.”
ESPN scored the bout 78-74 for Mayweather. He landed 43 total punches to Paul’s 28, per CompuBox.
