The former five-weight champion returned to the ring weighing a steady 155lbs as he was dwarfed by his 6”2′ and weighing in at 189.5lbs opponent in Logan Paul.
Speaking to Zab Judah in the aftermath of the fight, Mike Tyson warned Mayweather to start fighting opponents more closer suited to his weight or else he could get embarrassed.
“I think Floyd should keep on trying,” he said on Instagram Live. “I don’t think he should fight a f cruiserweight.
“I think he should continue fighting guys his own weight. What the f*** is he doing? Fight Pacquiao again or something, keep in shape.
“Now that I think about it now, he should have had Paul lose a lot of weight. I was surprised [he didn’t do that]. A smart fighter would have made him suffer, made him starve.
“It was harder than Floyd anticipated, I believe.
“Was he boxing a cruiserweight? How did he train for this, with experience?
“I believe when [Logan] was hitting him, he was hurting him a little bit because he’s not a 160-pound guy. [Logan is] a 190-pounder. I think that’s a heavyweight. 190-pounds to me is a heavyweight.
“I think [Mayweather] can learn from this one, fight guys more in his own category as far as weight is concerned.
“I think he’d make more money if he fought Pacquiao again. Floyd didn’t make the guy chase him. You make the big guy chase you.
“He needs to fight a guy at more of his weight division, 155-pounds or 160-pounds.”
