Recently, the UFC icon Michael Bisping talked about the Tyson vs Paul fight. He even shed some light on Mayweather’s performance against the YouTuber turned boxer.

‘The Count’ said, “Exhibition bout, let’s be honest, it’s an exhibition bout, it’s not a fight. I do have concerns for Logan Paul, though. I think Logan Paul might get knocked the f*** out in this. In exhibition bout, you’re not supposed to go for the knockouts but do you really see any world that you can imagine where Mike Tyson isn’t going to try and knockout Logan Paul.”

“Logan Paul, we just saw him against Floyd Mayweather, went the distance, okay so there was no winner, it’s an exhibition bout same thing.”

“Floyd carried him, let’s be honest, he did. Floyd should have been embarrassed with that performance,” he said.

Logan Paul fared well in his fight against ‘Pretty Boy’. However, he seemed tired in the concluding rounds. Despite that, his size advantage helped him hold his own and stay away from Floyd Mayweather.

Is Logan Paul getting better as a boxer?

Logan Paul put in immense hard work for his fight against Mayweather. Although he had the size advantage, ‘The Maverick’ still gave his best shot in his training.

Eventually, this worked well for him, as he had the stamina to last 16 minutes with the 50-0 boxer in the ring in Miami.

He has definitely improved as a boxer in the past few months. However, all of his skills will be up for examination if he battles ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ next year.
