How Did We Get Here?
Many boxing fans that love that sport have been seething with the popularity of celebrity boxing, and the announcement of this bout would have done little to appease those. Mayweather and Paul have been clashing for months on social media, and the animosity between the pair reached a new level when the two clash in the press day at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Paul stole Mayweather’s hat, which led him to become irate.
The fight was officially announced back in December, but was delayed from its original date in February. Paul has been posting workout videos on his social throughout the build-up, but in truth, he will need a minor miracle to get anywhere near a fighter that many consider to be among the best that have ever walked the earth. Mayweather is certainly set to get a big payday from this fight, but apart from the two fighters, it is hard to think of anyone else coming out of this as a winner.
Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul Pick & Prediction
Who will win the fight this weekend:
Since there is no scorecards and judges this weekend, then the only way to win the fight will be by knockout. Mayweather is clearly the more talented of the two, and that is an understatement. He knocked out Conor McGregor in his last high-profile bout, and this bout could follow the same pattern. He will humor Paul for a few round, before showcasing the skills that made him revered in the ring.
