However, Ryan Garcia isn’t the only elite to have favored Logan Paul. Mike Tyson’s ex-trainer, Teddy Atlas, has also expressed something similar in a recent interaction. The veteran trainer didn’t credit Paul under any boxing parameter. However, he touched upon Floyd Mayweather‘s inactivity and age as a problem.

“There could be danger here for Floyd. I know, I said it okay. I am not saying it because of the athlete that Paul is, the fighter, the background, any of that. Of course, he doesn’t have anything in that area. But when does Floyd not become Floyd, when does Floyd cease to exist?” said Atlas on his podcast.
