Moreover, despite the major differences in both the fighters’ physical statures, this fight still has attracted a lot of attention. In fact, ‘Pretty Boy’ has almost no concerns about Logan Paul’s extensive height and weight.

In a recent pre-fight interview with Sky Sports Boxing, he said, “Well, most of the time I go out there and I fight these guys, I’m giving up 20 pounds. When I was fighting at 140, the guy that I fight, go up to 160. When I was fighting at 147, guys go up to 167 within 24 hours.”

“So I don’t really worry about the weight. I don’t worry about height, I don’t worry about weight. Once again, fighting wins fights. And once again, nobody can win, so this is just entertainment.”

Furthermore, ‘TBE’ seems in the happiest and the most ideal mindset for his showdown against ‘The Maverick’. And he’s looking forward to enjoying his time inside the squared circle. Despite not being in his prime, Mayweather still possesses every ability to overpower the YouTuber turned boxer.
