Is Floyd Mayweather underestimating Logan Paul?

After agreeing to the exhibition, ‘Maverick’ has posted multiple updates about his training and workouts to prepare for the fight. However, this has not been the case for the former multi-weight world champion.

Mayweather has not officially started camp and has not posted videos of his training. However, the champion is in shape and has sharpened his skills. Adrien Broner shared a video of Mayweather in the gym while he was training for his comeback fight.

Therefore, the consensus that Mayweather is not training and taking the fight lightly is wrong. However, he still isn’t training to the level that he used to back in the day. Thus, it is understandable for fans to think ‘Money’ is underestimating Logan Paul.
