Floyd Mayweather had yet another exhibition bout, taking on a YouTuber in Logan Paul. There was a big size and weight disadvantage, but it was 50-0 vs 0-1, so many expected one outcome. In the end, the 44-year-old Mayweather just played with his food in the early rounds, while Paul refused to engage and just clinched to try and survive in the latter rounds.
Paul’s coach wasn’t shy about their goal, telling him that surviving would be a victory in their eyes. It went the full eight rounds, in a largely ugly contest.
