WBC silver lightweight champion Ryan Garcia is one of them. He thinks Floyd Mayweather will comfortably poleaxe the YouTuber turned boxer. Well, the fight is still to receive an official nod. However, it has already garnered a lot of attention on social media.

Ryan Garcia prays for Logan Paul

It is no surprise that Mayweather wanted to return to action earlier this year. While he had desired to face UFC veterans Khabib Nurmagomedov or Conor McGregor, Logan Paul has seemingly made it to the final list.

However, boxing superstar Ryan Garcia is on Mayweather’s side in this matchup. He recently took to Twitter and left a short yet cheeky message for the YouTube sensation.

It has clearly intensified the tale for the boxing fans, citing a possible blockbuster event in 2020.

That said, Logan Paul is just one fight old in the profession, losing his maiden contest via decision against KSI. Thus, a former boxer boasting an undefeated record of 50-0 can be highly alarming for him.
