He added that Floyd Mayweather might have held back on that night. Jordan Belfort also believes the 44-year-old could have easily knocked out Logan ‘The Maverick’ Paul inside a round. He claimed he held back from finishing the 26-year-old right away to build entertainment value for future fights.

That was obviously staged, that whole thing.

“No. 1, it was an exhibition match, it wasn’t a professional fight, so to say that it was staged wouldn’t be the end of the world. I don’t mean that in a derogatory way at all. I don’t mean to belittle what they did.

What I’m saying is I don’t think the purpose of that fight was for Mayweather to knockout Logan Paul, the purpose was to entertain people for the next fight.

I think he can beat the living crap out of Logan Paul and knock him out in one round. One of the greatest fighters of all time and Logan Paul couldn’t beat KSI,” said Jordan Belfort.

What did Logan Paul say to Floyd Mayweather after the fight?

In a recent interview, Logan Paul revealed what he said to ‘Money’ Mayweather after their fight on June 6, 2021. He said that he thanked his legendary opponent for giving him the opportunity to share the ring with him for eight rounds.
