Mayweather-Logan Paul boxing exhibition goes the distance

Social media sensation Logan Paul went the full eight rounds against Floyd Mayweather Jr. — arguably the best boxer of this generation — in their boxing exhibition at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida on Sunday (Monday, Manila time).

The YouTube star’s size advantage at 6-foot-2 was hardly a factor against the 5 foot-8 Mayweather, who forced his young opponent to be on the defensive for the second half of the fight.

Mayweather, who weighs 155 pounds, produced a typically slick performance much to the delight of a substantial crowd at the home of the Miami Dolphins.

With former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield watching on from ringside, internet sensation Paul, 26 and 189 pounds, produced a few moments of menace yet no way near enough to trouble Mayweather, 44, who brought an end to his boxing career in 2017 with a record of 50-0 after beating UFC star Conor McGregor in Las Vegas.
