Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul- What’s in the store for us?

Since it’s not a professional boxing bout, there are several stats that we need to look after. Starting from their social media followers to boxing record, Mayweather and Logan Paul can be contrasted under umpteen parameters.

However, the undefeated ‘Money Mayweather’ would overpower ‘The Maverick’ on most of them.

Boxing Record

Mayweather arguably has the best boxing record of all time as he reflects 50 wins with no losses in a career that ran from 1996 to 2017.

He has beaten several elites, likely Oscar De La Hoya, Canelo Alvarez, Shane Mosley, Manny Pacquiao, and Conor McGregor amongst others. So, it’s tough to challenge his resume on paper.

Meanwhile, Logan Paul has a pro record of 0 wins with one loss which came from a fellow YouTuber in KSI in 2019. Logan Paul hasn’t fought since then. So, it’s bizarre to put him on a similar scale to Floyd Mayweather while analyzing their in-ring accolades.
