Floyd Mayweather is not a name that you take with disrespect when it comes to boxing or maybe in general, as the man can pound you into a bag of garbage in just mere few seconds literally.
For those unknown, Mayweather started in 1996 and ended his career in 2015 and has won fifteen major world titles in 5 different weight classes. In his full career, he has a clean record and was undefeated till he retired. He played a total of 50 matches in his career and won them all including 27 wins by knockout and no losses.
In 2016, one year after he retired, the man was named by ESPN as the greatest boxer, pound for pound, in the last 25 years. He has been known to end boxing careers and well he do it gracefully.
Talking about Logan Paul, his life has been rather a on display and he has been known for his notorious acts ever since he started. While Floyd Mayweather has massive respect among all circles, Logan is mostly disrespected wherever he goes. Sometimes by the audience and at other times by the media itself.
He made money at a very young age by the use of his Youtube Channel where he used to do crazy stuff. Now, with that, he switched to a very big house, luxury cars and whatnot. But now he’s onto winning respect for himself as well and started competing professionally.
Even if he loses against Mayweather, which is what we all predict, it’s would mean something and add to his experiential record. Moreover, he gets to fight Mayweather so early in his career, that’s something of its own. Not many boxers get that.
Also, Mayweather is known as the money man and Logan Pual also hauls in a hefty amount of money for whatever he does. This is why they both are getting quite a generous amount of reimbursement from this boxing match.
Which is something that has set the boxing community on fire as Logan Paul has made a joke out of everybody who works hard and non-stop for days just to enter the ring. Due to his notorious fame, he got a shot with Mayweather and maybe what next but then again, who are we to decide. Let’s see how this rollout.
