The Tyson/RJJ show reportedly doing 1.6 million buys did make me wonder if we’d get something like this.

It's just a moneygrab anyways and you really want to do Mayweather like that? It's not that long ago that he fought.

But he fought someone close to his size and weight.

Unironically, Logan Paul has more chances of having a lucky shot than McGregor. And if that miracle somehow happens, it would be a tremendous embarassment for Floyd's legacy.

The boxer who never lost against the boxer who never won.

Easy money, but Logan Paul is a big guy he needs to do a super cut. Freak show I guess.

Mayweather will own Paul. He’s just too inexperienced to compete against one of the greatest of all time even if he’s close to 20 younger.

Not sure it's a good idea for Floyd. Logan has nothing to lose and the size, weight and age difference is big.
Floyd will striaght up murder this kid. The Pauls are about to be shown what its like stepping in the ring with an actual boxer....

Floyd's experience and vastly superior technique will more than make up for any size difference.

If Mayweather beats your ass you can always have a written exam face off. 🤷‍♂️
I think you just made him cry.
I'm pretty sure I saw him wiping away his tears with a roll of fifties.
Which he then threw in a bin.

I wouldn't normally cheer for Floyd but if he can arrange for logan to have a Michael Watson moment then he'll become one of my favourite boxers ever.

Ohhh, this is the other one. He’s also done boxing before, right? Which has more subscribers? If Logan does I suspect that’s why he’s been picked.

Ya he had a year or two of training with a professional trainer.

From looking into it a little bit just now, when they bought fought on a boxing card Logan was the headliner. So it seems like Logan is the bigger star?
I don't know, i'm not familiar with these morons except for their boxing "career"...

SO does Logan Paul Just want to get his ass kicked cause that's exactly what's going to happen. There is no scenario in the world where if Floyd takes this even remotely seriously he does just flat out destroy Logan Paul.

He’s gonna make a shit load of money. Floyd Mayweather would embarrass me so badly but I wouldn’t hesitate to accept that offer if millions were on the table.

I doubt Paul is going into this expecting to win. But as Mayweather himself knows, there’s a lot of money to be made if people want to see you get your ass kicked.

So people are as dumb as I thought. They already acting like this will be a real fight where Mayweather kills Paul... It's simply a money grab. Logan has already won by just being in the ring 1v1 against Mayweather. Floyd will simply go easy on him for full 6 rounds (or whatever will be the rules for this exhibition fight) with Floyd being declared an obvious winner.

Why? Logan won’t land a single strike on Floyd. Hell, he won’t actually even touch Floyd with a shot if that’s how Floyd wants it.

Complete waste of time. There is nothing to even sell, they can’t pretend it could be competitive because it won’t be. Not even if Paul had a 10+ year professional career.

I don't like Logan Paul, but I can't really knock him here. He loses, and nobody is surprised because it's Mayweather & he gets a big paycheck. In the absolute 1% chance he wins, it would be huge obviously. Pretty much a win/win for him and his 'brand'.

This is all assuming he doesn't get hurt, but I have a feeling Floyd will go a bit easy on him and drag the fight out a bit. I actually enjoyed the McGregor fight, but I don't think this will be as fun or exciting. Not exciting like that was though, it was fun to see the crossover with MMA and Boxing. I might watch highlights to see what happened, but wouldn't go out of my way to watch this.

Logan doesn't have a 1% chance lol
He can't even beat another youtuber? I'm confused as to why this is happening

Floyd isn’t really capable of beating anyone’s ass anymore, he doesn’t have knock out power and hasn’t for years, he can put on a great boxing clinic.

Both the Paul brothers are strong and pretty well trained. They are athletes. He’s got about 50 pounds and a massive reach advantage on Floyd, I wouldn’t underestimate either of them.

He’s got quite a bit more than a 1% chance. Even if Logan Paul wasn’t jacked and well trained the size difference is massive. Floyd has bad hands, that’s why he stopped power shots and became a defensive fighter exclusively practically a decade ago. Prime Floyd yeah, but he is nowhere near that guy anymore.
