While Logan Paul was fortunate to walk out unbeaten against Mayweather, he looked back at some of his ideologies from the pre-fight weekend. In a chat with Jake Paul on the IMPAULSIVE podcast, ‘The Maverick’ opened up on his emotions.

Logan told Jake Paul, “A couple of things motivated me for this fight. And I don’t think I told this to you yet. But definitely when you started jawing Floyd [Mayweather] a little bit, and he seemed to have shifted his focus towards you a little bit. And I didn’t want to get like made an example of. And have him beat me and then take on you and then possibly have him beat you and have him be the guy who beat both the Pauls.”
