Logan Paul, until now, has fought only once professionally. This fight was back in 2019 against fellow YouTuber KSI. Although the YouTuber ended up on the losing vertical in this fight, he still kept himself in the news with his antics.

He is the undeniable star of celebrity boxers. Hence, after seeing his aura and fan base, Mayweather decided to contend with him in what is expected to be a highly entertaining boxing bout. However, Paul, as a box, is still green. Hence, facing someone as elite as Floyd Mayweather might put him in a vulnerable state.

Yet, he’s highly optimistic about putting up a show in this fight. And for that, he’s put himself in deep waters with his rigorous and consuming training sessions.

Will Floyd Mayweather decode Logan Paul in the early seconds of the fight?

Floyd Mayweather is one of the smartest technicians of the game. He had an exemplary knack of decoding his opponents’ style right in the initial few rounds of the fight. ‘Pretty Boy’ will look forward to employing the same approach in his fight against ‘The Maverick’.

Furthermore, Paul will have to be extremely proactive because Mayweather capitalizes on his opponent’s weaknesses, subsequently, handing them a beating.

Though the 26-year-old definitely has some substantial boxing skills, a fight with ‘TBE’ would require more. Hence, it’ll be intriguing to see what he comes up with.

What do you make of that video? Do you see Paul getting floored on the canvas in the initial rounds?
