Logan Paul arguably gave Floyd Mayweather the hardest run inside the boxing ring when the two collided in a bizarre exhibition matchup in June. The fight ended in a draw after a full-length contest, putting a massive dent on Mayweather’s invincible status.

Having said that, Paul continues to belittle his latest rival as he claimed YouTube boxer KSI to possess more power than ‘TBE’ Floyd Mayweather. 0-1 as a pugilist, Paul suffered a loss against KSI in a contest that was criticized by several traditional fight fans. However, ‘The Maverick’ fortunately bagged a matchup against Mayweather, which turned out to be a glorious feather in his boxing cap.

In a recent interaction with True Geordie, ‘The Maverick’ shared his experience of sharing the ring with Floyd Mayweather. He also compared KSI’s hard hits with Mayweather’s, which shocked several fans.

“KSI for sure, for sure. Not even a competition. [Floyd’s] clean shots, I was like, ‘Cool, good shot.’ KSI I’m like, ‘Keep my f***ing face away from those hands,” said Logan Paul. (H/T:- Michael Benson)

KSI and Logan Paul have actually collided twice. The first contest was an amateur white-collar fight that ended in a draw. However, Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom staged the rematch under professional guidelines. Brit YouTuber KSI won the fight via decision, ending the social media war inside the boxing ring.

It was still a 50-50 contest, with two equal-sized men facing each other inside the ring. But Mayweather vs Paul was an absolute mismatch that appeared to be a money fight, instead of a boxing scrap.
