UFC President Dana White isn’t buying the Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul fight and appears uninterested in it.

Moreover, he has mocked the matchup and has demeaned the whole spirit of boxing by measuring it with the recently announced exhibition fight.

Earlier, Mayweather had touted to set up a cross-promotion fight with UFC in 2020, but the COVID-19 outbreak ruled off those plans. He could have settled it in 2021, but ‘Money May’ opted to face Logan Paul. Several fight fans have already disliked the contest, and Dana White didn’t hesitate to jump into the mix.

The UFC spear header connected with nelkboys to shed light on his umpteen future plans. However, he couldn’t miss out the Mayweather vs Paul fight.

Belittling the entire event, White said, “When People ask me, ‘What’s the state of boxing right now? That’s where it’s at. Didn’t that kid (Logan Paul) get beat up by the f**** video game kid from England, and now he is going to fight Floyd Mayweather?”

Meanwhile, it will be a huge night for Logan Paul, who isn’t even an elite boxer. He transitioned himself from YouTube to combat sports in 2019 against fellow social media star KSI, but lost the fight. Now, he will face the best boxer of this era in his second fight.

It appears to be an easy fight for Mayweather who has beaten world champions and reached the pinnacle of the sport. Now, he seemingly wants to bag big checks and easy opponents.

However, it won’t be like that of other exhibition fights. Both the punchers are assumed to knock each other out and will be nothing less than a proper fight. But, standing on the boxing abilities, fans foresee it as a lopsided win for five divisional world champion Floyd Mayweather.
