Floyd Mayweather can possibly return to boxing action this year, and he is currently being billed to go against Logan Paul in his comeback.
If materialized, the matchup will clearly bring something new to the platter for fight fans. However, Logan Paul is still to reach the level of an elite in the sport and Mayweather has already beaten the best athletes. That said, several people claim it to be a bad matchup.
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.

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.
It is no surprise that Ryan Garcia understands the notion as he expressed his thoughts on the matchup by sending his prayers to Logan Paul.
Meanwhile, Garcia will also fight against Luke Campbell soon. After massive changes in date and venue, the ‘Golden Boy’ prodigy will appear in November. However, the official date is still not out.
Amid all these situations, one thing is clear, it is the boxing fans who are going to get blessed with some super stellar matchups shortly.
