This fight was earlier set for February 20, but because of some uncertainties, it failed to materialize. Yet, both Mayweather and Paul assured their fans that they would proceed with this exhibition bout in the biggest possible manner.

That said, Paul is already eager to get inside the boxing ring against ‘TBE’ and beat him. But can he really beat Floyd Mayweather? And what if ‘The Maverick’ actually beats ‘Pretty Boy’ in this classic exhibition contest?

Floyd Mayweather, in his illustrious boxing run, fought enormous bigwigs of the game. But he never faced someone as lanky as Logan Paul.

Citing the same, Paul feels he has an edge over his nemesis and this is enough for him to tackle the boxing great. In a conversation with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show, he said, “I’m 30 lbs heavier, half his age, a foot taller and I work my a** off so I don’t know, anything could happen,” (h/t Daily Mail)

Paul’s boxing prowess is definitely not on Mayweather’s level, but his confidence and optimism are sky-high. And once he goes face-to-face in the ring against ‘TBE’, Paul will look to make full use of this prevailing mindset.

A win against Floyd Mayweather – What will it mean to Logan Paul?

If by any means Logan Paul upsets Mayweather, he will etch his name in the history books forever. Although it’ll be an exhibition loss, it would still go down as Mayweather’s most dreadful career loss.

But facing and defeating someone as elite as Mayweather will prove to be the toughest task of his career. Hence, his chances of a win are a remote ‘IF’.
