Logan Paul stands 6’2” tall with a reach of 76”, whereas Mayweather is 5’8” with a reach of 72”. Citing that, the lanky Paul will unquestionably have an added advantage in terms of physical characteristics over ‘TBE’. However, when it boils down to boxing skills and in-ring management, Paul doesn’t remain on the same page with Mayweather.

In this fight, Mayweather will look to capitalize by scoring slick counter-attacks and solid body shots. On the other hand, the novice Logan Paul will have to break down ‘Pretty Boy’s defense to be able to land his hits.
