Earlier, this bout was set to take place on February 20th. But due to a few glitches, it couldn’t reach fruition. As a result, it got pushed ahead, and it finally took place on June 6th.

In this fight, the underdog Logan Paul went in an offensive mode and attacked Mayweather with his wild punches in the very first round. But as the fight went ahead, it was ‘TBE’ who employed all of his experience to tackle the lanky Logan Paul.

He kept ‘The Maverick’ on his toes and continued with his assault. On the other hand, Paul didn’t hold back and even he came up with a staggering response by landing some astonishing power hits.

As a result, the duo kept fighting until the last gong and kept the fans entertained throughout. Despite that, the estimated PPV numbers don’t really go in this fight’s favor.

Because prior to the fight, many expected this contest to stand tall on fans’ expectations, thus bag millions of PPV buys.

Will Floyd Mayweather take up any more exhibition bouts like these?

The 50-0 boxer is known for his boxing skills and the business mindset he employs in all of his fights. That said, despite this fight not doing so well on PPV, it still gave ‘Pretty Boy’ a handsome paycheck.

Citing that, Floyd Mayweather might return to the ring to take on another exhibition. And consequently, make millions of dollars from the same.

However, there’s no official statement released from ‘TBE’s team regarding his next outing. But it’ll be interesting to see what he comes up in the coming few months.
