Also, many expected this exhibition to conclude in approximately 3 rounds, as Paul’s skillsets were nothing compared to those of Mayweather. But things completely changed when the duo actually fought. The fight went the distance and ‘Pretty Boy’ failed to capitalize on his strengths at the Hard Rock Stadium.

Recently, Floyd Mayweather’s uncle, Jeff Mayweather, interacted with Fight Hub TV and revealed what went wrong for his nephew in the Logan Paul fight.

He said, “Well, I mean, don’t get me wrong. Logan’s a athlete. Logan’s not just a YouTuber, he’s a athlete. So I mean, and he outweighed him by 40 pounds and gave up, you know, what about five inches in height? So I mean that can happen to anyone.”

“I mean, people think that just because Floyd was a great boxer that I mean when you turn 44, things change, and plus he’s been inactive for about four years so, it was great.”

Mayweather was successful in landing some of his power hits on the YouTuber. However, as he didn’t really get into the groove, he failed to put up a fight worth the hype and departed without a win. On the other hand, Paul gave his best, and he allured everyone with his performance.
