Nevertheless, Logan Paul used his humor and trash-talked Floyd Mayweather. Other than boxing, he discussed several matters and seemingly humiliated the five-division world champion. While Mayweather labeled him as a “fake” boxer, ‘The Maverick’ said, “The only thing that’s fake in this stage is Floyd’s f***** hairline.”

He even took note of Mayweather’s age and called him old for the sport. To be precise, Logan Paul said, “You are the king of cats, you are not the boxer anymore. You are retired, you are old. You are a grandpa, your kids have kids.”

That’s not all. Paul also mocked Mayweather’s reading abilities. He fake accused him of reading a teleprompter before hinting the undefeated boxer can’t read. Adding to that, Mayweather talked about Logan Paul’s controversial Japan incident.

However, Paul lashed back and said, “I know what you did to your wife. Floyd is 50-0? No, he is 51-1, he beat his wife too.”
