Floyd Mayweather announced his comeback in an exhibition fight against Logan Paul on Feb. 20 though he has not been in the ring since 2017.
The last time audience have a chance to watch Mayweather in the ring was his display against an UFC fighter, Conor McGregor. Though he defeated the former UFC lightweight champion, it was not a good fight of the American boxer. This upcoming Feb. 20 will be the first time spectators can watch Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring, and this time, the young Logan Paul will be his challenger.
The fighter has beforehand said trash things about his legendary colleagues including saying bad words.
“Let me tell you this, if I caught Floyd in a real fight, street fight, whoop his ass!” he said. “MMA? Octagon? Whoop his ass!”
Instead of saying bad words, Mayweather replied with some mocking language but at the same time very knowledgeable. He compared Paul with Barbie dolls and said that his name was not a joke for youngsters to mention whenever they want to. Weight advantage might make Logan Paul a huge challenge for Mayweather, but the legendary fighter knows how to deal with big guy.
A 50-0 record is not a joking thing. It is the winning streak of a legendary fighter, and for an amateur fighter like Logan Paul, it is life dream to be in the same ring with a legend like Mayweather. Perhaps, Mayweather still struggle with the weight problem, the legendary boxer can avoid big punches thanks to his speed.
And if he needs an example about how to deal with big punches, Mayweather can learn from Jake Paul who has just knocked out NBA’s former star Nate Robinson in an exhibition match.
The fight between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather plans to occur on Feb. 20. The location is not decided yet.
