Despite that, both Paul and Mayweather assured their fans of staging this fight in the mightiest way later this year. In fact, the Youtuber turned boxer, Logan Paul, is leaving no stones unturned in preparations for the ‘Money’ fight.

He even took some boxing lessons from the young gun Ryan Garcia. Garcia posted the whole video on his own YouTube channel, wherein he was seen teaching the ‘Maverick’ how to counter Floyd Mayweather’s greatest in-ring weapon, the pull counter.

‘KingRy’ shows exactly how Floyd Mayweather sets his opponents up for a massive pull counter. He advised Paul to stay right on his toes throughout the fight and not move back against the undefeated boxing veteran.

Garcia and Paul trained side by side, and the young gun taught Paul much more than just tackling Mayweather’s best shot.

Mayweather has dispatched countless opponents with his strong pull-counter technique. He looks for one weakness in his opponent and then launches his favorite shot with all his might.

This technique gave ‘Pretty Boy’ a lot of momentum and success in the ring and he will look to do the same against the lanky Logan Paul.
