YouTube star-turned-prizefighter Logan Paul went the distance with Floyd Mayweather — all eight rounds — on Sunday night in an entertaining exhibition boxing match at Hard Rock Stadium. Paul’s coach Milton Lacroix told ESPN last month that a success in this fight for Paul would be going the whole way. And that’s what Paul did.
“He’s better than I thought he was,” Mayweather said of Paul. “…I was surprised by him tonight. Good work. Good little guy.”
“I don’t want anyone to tell me anything is impossible ever again,” Paul said. “The fact that I’m in here with one of the best boxers of all times proves the odds can be beat.”
Logan Paul goes this distance with Floyd Mayweather, which is really no surprise.
It doesn’t do Floyd any good to knock out Logan. At this point this is simply reality TV. Go the distance with Logan, angle for a rematch and/or take on his brother and make millions. Easy money.
