The exhibition bout between the two has drawn serious criticism throughout the build-up. Despite all the hate, the event will take place. And as unbelievable as it sounds, Paul has a surprising take on the fight. He even claimed it’s not the biggest fight of his life but the biggest of Mayweather’s.

The 0-1 boxer spoke at the weigh-ins after he came in over 30-pounds heavier than Mayweather. He said, “He’s not ready. He don’t know what to expect. And this is not the biggest fight of my life, this is the biggest fight of his life. Because he’s got a lot on the line, and he’s got everything to lose, imma go out there and have fun.”

‘The Maverick’ then channeled his inner conspiracy-theorist and pointed out, “The fact that I’m even up here proves that this sh*t is a simulation. None of its real. The aliens are coming in June, just be ready. Tomorrow I break the f***ing simulation and beat the greatest boxer in the history of the planet.”

Why is it so unbelievable that Logan Paul is facing Floyd Mayweather?

The comments from Paul showed even he knows how surprising it is that he will face ‘TBE.’ The only explanation he could find was that we are living in a simulation. So why is it such an unbelievable thing?

A year ago, Floyd Mayweather did not even know who Logan Paul was. Although ‘The Maverick‘ has a massive social media following, Mayweather is on another level when it comes to fame. In addition, when you consider boxing, Mayweather has never lost a professional bout, and Logan Paul has never won.
