Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather – Results and fight stats

While Mayweather is always confident in his abilities, he is also equally smart with the decisions he makes in and out of the ring. Aware of the obvious size difference, there was always a small room for a knockout or being overpowered in the fight. So, this fight was not sanctioned, was not officially scored by judges and no winner was announced at the end.

Boxing purists never expected Logan Paul to last against Mayweather, let alone outbox him. However, the 26-year-old showed decent skills inside the ring against the boxing legend and went the distance with his opponent.

His ability to survive against ‘Pretty Boy’ earned Logan Paul a moral victory and proved that ‘father time’ took a little away from Mayweather.

However, the fight stats suggested that Floyd Mayweather secured yet another easy win. He outboxed and outclassed the Ohio native. ‘Money’ landed more jabs with his usual ‘stick and move’ approach, showcased more power and was overall the better striker on that night.

Unofficial scorecards

While there were no official scorecards, many boxing analysts, experts and even other fighters shared their own takes and versions of scorecards for the fight.

Boxing analyst Dan Rafael shared that Floyd Mayweather lost rounds 1 and 2 but went on to dominate the rest of the fight with ease.

Marc Raimondi said that round 7 was Logan Paul’s best round. He added that Floyd Mayweather did not seem very active in that round and allotted a 10-9 score to Paul.

Even his brother, Jake ‘The Problem Child’ Paul shared that Logan Paul was winning the fight, even before heading into round 7.

Pay-per-view buys

Nobody expected this bout to go the distance. But to everyone’s surprise, the tussle went till the final bell and left the fans entertained. Moreover, the bout fared exuberantly well on fans’ expectations and it reportedly hit over 1 million PPV buys.
