Logan Paul Gets The Win, Going the Distance With Floyd Mayweather

After the fourth, the fifth, and then the sixth, you assumed the hammer would drop. It never did, though it looked to me like Floyd Mayweather tried to drop and stop Logan Paul, and give the people what they wanted, a climactic finish.

The 26 year old Paul, who came to Miami with an 0-1 record, went the distance, eight rounds, with 44 year old Floyd Mayweather on Sunday night. And though no winner was announced after this exhibition contest, I will give the W to Logan, for making it to the final bell. Not one person out there thought he would, maybe not even him.

“You gotta realize I'm not 21 anymore,” Floyd Mayweather said after, admitting, “he's better than I thought he was.”

Floyd Mayweather allowed Logan Paul to go the eight round distance with him on June 6, 2021.

Floyd Mayweather to Brian Custer after said he was surprised by Logan, that he had fun and he thanked the fans who bought the PPV and came to the arena.

There were almost no cheers when the contest ended, because everyone wanted a KO, everyone except little bro Jake Paul, who sat in the front row and hollered attaboys to his bro.

Logan and trainer Lacroix are elated, because the kid went the distance.

Logan, an Ohio farm boy, had stamina, and some decent footwork, and his tactics were smart. He held on to Floyd, using his 40 pound weight advantage, and Floyd tried to rip some power shots to take him out, but Logan's chin held up. His gut, too; Floyd landed a sharp one to the solar plexus area, and Paul's abs area held up.

Trainer Milton Lacroix told Logan, “You're not tired” repeeatedly, and that positive talk helped.

Paul talked to Brian Custer after and said he appreciated the opportunity and that he hated being a dick to hype up the scrap. He admitted he was on top of the world, going the distance with the legend Floyd Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather looked a wee bit demoralized as he walked to the back, possibly. I think he may have realized how much age takes from you. Or maybe this was the plan, and he will come back next week, pissed off, and announce that he wants to show his true worth, and beat up the little Paul brother.

SPEEDBAG: The Luis Arias fight against Jarrett Hurd stole the Showtime PPV show. Arias won a split decision, he was the busier boxer, and Hurd never got untracked in the second half, as he usually does, in this middleweight clash, which was not an exhibition.
