Boxing enthusiasts and hardcore fans will despise this exhibition bout, seeing no meaning in Mayweather fighting a 0-1 Logan Paul. The truth is, the sweet science might use a few influencers like the Paul brothers to reach millennial fans. Interest in boxing has fallen drastically in the past decade. UFC, a largely America-based MMA sport, has found the way to the youngster’s screens.
Back in the 80s’ and 90s’, boxing had a crazy following among the people. Sons and fathers would sit along together at the weekends to watch Mike Tyson and other stars. Before that, there was Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson and the radio. Mayweather is trying to form a bond in this fast-paced world by going in its way. So nothing’s wrong if he earned a few million in the process.
Other names in the main card include Badou Jack, Dervin Colina, Chad Johnson and Brian Maxwell. The prelims might be Mayweather’s way of selecting fighters for his banner. Viddal Riley is already a student of Mayweather, Jean Torres, Jarett Hurd, Luis Arias and Pedro Cruz are some names in the undercard.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Logan Paul Prediction:
Floyd Mayweather – The Best Ever
48 and O. That is Floyd Mayweather’s record when he announced his retirement. He knelt in the ring after defeating Manny Pacquiao and sent his gratitude up in the air. The destined for Hall of Fame have played two contests since his retirement. In 2015, Andre Berto challenged Mayweather for the WBC, WBA (super) and the Ring title. The champion defended with ease.
The force to beat Mayweather hasn’t been born yet. Only the celestial bodies can compete against this star’s shine. For the past decade, Mayweather has depended on the judges for the result and he has exceptional judging skills. “Money” Mayweather hustles outside the ring not within it. He waits for his rivals to deliver whatever they got with patience. Conor McGregor got a taste of Mayweather’s patience test in August 2017. “The Best Ever” started late in the sixth round and went on to tire the MMA fighter until round 10. The referee stopped the fight when Mayweather delivered a set of knockout grade punches to McGregor.
“Money” – Mayweather
The owner of fifteen titles in five weight classes, Floyd Mayweather has been off the ring since the McGregor bout. But, he is not normal people. He is in good shape still in his 40’s. Hailing from a family of boxers this American knows how to dig his gloves for the money. Mayweather is a Pay-Per-View hero and a shrewd businessman, his firm Mayweather Promotions represents a few of the leading boxers in the industry right now. Funny fact, Viddal Riley, the boxing trainer of the Youtube personality KSI who defeated Logan Paul, is a cruiserweight under the banner of Mayweather Promotions.
Like a student of law challenging a Magistrate, Logan Paul will be walking into the Hard Rock Stadium this Sunday. Nevertheless, his followers are eager to watch their idol fight an all-time great in boxing history. That counts in the current situation. Paul indeed has the height and a 40-pound weight advantage against Mayweather. But it is just as useful as a chunk of iron against a wielded sword. The Youtuber will have to be really good to survive 7 or more rounds against the professional.
Although Mayweather looks chiselled for a 44-year-old, his cardio will have taken a dip since his retirement. He will love to finish the bout as early as possible without hurting the emotion of Paul’s fans too much. Obviously, there is not much prediction work to do in this bout. But, eager bettors can go to bet365.com and choose how the contest can end. “Money” Mayweather displayed in the McGregor bout that he is still capable of finishing via knockouts. A similar outcome is BettingPremier’s prediction for Mayweather vs Paul bout.
