However, some have their favor for Logan Paul, including boxing trainer Robert Garcia, who claims that ‘The Maverick’ will get a KO win over Floyd Mayweather. It might sound bizarre to umpteen hardcore fight fans. But Garcia explained how Mayweather and Paul can have a rematch if the former faces the maiden defeat of his pro career.

In a chat with ES NEWS, Robert Garcia said, “Yeah, knockout, second round. Yeah, why not? It’s an exhibition, right? So that doesn’t count on Mayweather’s record. So, he could lose and then make a rematch.”

However, Mayweather vs Paul isn’t the only fight that has Garcia’s attention. He also shed light on Conor McGregor facing Manny Pacquiao and predicted the ‘Pac-Man’ to overpower ‘Notorious’ inside the ring.

While Garcia opted for a YouTuber against a professional pugilist in Mayweather vs Paul, he predicted a pro pugilist to beat an MMA fighter for McGregor vs Pacquiao.

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor still dictate boxing
