The 0-1 boxer shared the video to his YouTube channel. In the video, we see ‘The Maverick’ enter the ring with four of the famous Gronkowski brothers. He took on each brother for one round. And the internet sensation showed his boxing ability when he destroyed all four before the rounds even ended.

Paul’s opponents included Gordie Jr., Dan, Chris, and Glenn Gronkowski. However, NFL champion Rob Gronkowski did not take part in the sparring. Despite their athletic background, Paul made light work of all four, even dropping Chris and Glenn Gronkowski.

What does this mean for the Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather bout?

All four Gronkowski brothers have better athletic ability than Logan Paul. Three of the four made it to the NFL, while Gordie Jr. played in the MLB. So what does Paul’s performance against these professional athletes mean for his bout against Mayweather?

Unfortunately, for the YouTuber turned boxer, this sparring does not mean much. Even though Paul admitted that the Gronkowski brothers were massive, the quartet had no boxing experience. So, although Paul looked in great shape and dismantled all four brothers with ease, it will not translate to anything when compared to ‘Money’.

Mayweather, who is a seasoned boxer, will pose a much harder threat than someone who has never boxed. Therefore, fans of the internet sensation will hope that ‘The Maverick’ trains with tougher competition than the Gronkowski brothers.

Either way, this video appeared to be a joke, with none of them taking it seriously. Even Paul termed it ‘stupid’ in-between rounds. Thus, fans should not read too much into this footage.

What do you make of this sparring footage between Logan Paul and the Gronkowski brothers? Do you think it was a real sparring session?
