The Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul battle was something however a knockout — even when one might have occurred.
Whereas Mayweather vs. Paul was billed and bought as an exhibition purchased between one of many biggest ever and an web superstar, the battle itself appeared a bit extra scripted than a WWE match. (Which Mayweather would know a factor or two about.)
Throughout the battle, although, Mayweather might have gone off script: Mayweather landed a flush counter-punch, hobbling and dazing Paul.

Mayweather, nailing Paul with a proper hand on the ear, causes Paul to stumble into Mayweather, who appears to carry him up. Mayweather presumably wished to assist him throughout the end line. No winner was declared within the battle, although Mayweather landed extra punches and out-boxed Paul within the bout.
Whereas exhibition bouts are nothing new in boxing — Muhammad Ali fought professional wrestling legend Antonio Inoki in an exhibition battle within the ’70s, in any case — the blatant cash-grab nature of those fights is not precisely changing into of the game.
In the long run, Mayweather and Paul knew precisely what they have been doing: Taking part in followers for suckers in an eight-round battle that amounted to nothing greater than an enormous payday for each combatants.
In spite of everything, “Cash” mentioned as a lot after the battle:
“On the subject of legalized financial institution robbing, I am the perfect,” Mayweather mentioned.
Properly, no lies detected there.
