Last month, the boxing legend Floyd Mayweather took up a mammoth exhibition fight against the celebrity boxing stalwart, Logan Paul. To everyone’s surprise, this fight went the distance, and the young gun, Paul, survived Mayweather’s extensive blows. Everyone expected ‘Pretty Boy’ to win this fight in a sensational fashion, but Mayweather couldn’t do the same.

Recently, ‘Money’s uncle, Jeff Mayweather, spoke to The Champ and The Chump. Here, he revealed what went wrong for Floyd Mayweather and why he couldn’t batter ‘The Maverick’.

He said, “I think he wanted to knock him out, of course, but he couldn’t. The guy was too big. He did so much holding and you know was strong enough to take those shots, and as soon as he got hit, he locked up. So that made the fight a little ugly.”

As the fight began, Paul commenced his assault on Mayweather with wild strikes to the face and body. But the defensive genius, Floyd Mayweather, dodged the heat coming off the YouTuber’s hands. As the fight proceeded, Mayweather (50-0), who got comfortable, landed some quality right hands on ‘The Maverick’.

But the vast size difference between the two didn’t really assist ‘Money’. Though he had his fair and share of moments in the ring, the 44-year-old was far away from knocking his adversary out.

However, both Paul and Mayweather put on clinical performance and kept the fans entertained throughout.

For almost two decades, Mayweather ruled the sport of boxing with his prolific skills. In his illustrious boxing stint, ‘TBE’ went toe-to-toe against countless bigwigs.
