Tomorrow night, the world will see the boxing match that has everyone buzzing. One of the greatest boxers of all time, Floyd Mayweather (50-0), is returning for an exhibition matchup against internet celebrity Logan Paul (0-1).
We are in such a weird time in combat sports and this boxing matchup might be the weirdest thing that’s occurring. Nevertheless, the exhibition is going down tomorrow night and there’s a ton of heat with this matchup.
Floyd Mayweather hasn’t been in a boxing ring since he defeated Conor McGregor back in 2017. Mayweather retired after that matchup, but when the opportunity came up to make potentially nine figures to box Logan Paul, Mayweather couldn’t say no.
This matchup is not being sanctioned and there are no judges scoring the fight. With that in mind, there will be no official winner crowned in this matchup. The obvious reason why this boxing matchup is not being sanctioned is due to the massive size difference.
Floyd Mayweather is 5’8 and will weigh around 150 pounds. Logan Paul is 6’2 and will weigh around 200 pounds when these two meet in the squared circle. Obviously, Mayweather’s boxing pedigree speaks for itself, but the same can’t be said for Logan Paul.
Paul is athletic, strong, and he’s young. However, he’s only boxed twice with only one bout being official. In that one official fight, he lost to another celebrity, KSI. The only reason why there is a maybe in the result of this boxing matchup is the size difference.
Boxing Match Prediction
When it comes to the boxing match tomorrow night, I don’t know how anyone could bet on Logan Paul. That said, he doesn’t have the smallest of chances to pick up the win tomorrow. He’s going to be slower and he’s going to have far-worse technique.
That said, he will have a massive size and strength advantage in there. If Mayweather is caught slipping at all, Paul could land a haymaker that could do some serious damage. Mayweather is 44 years old and I guarantee you that Logan Paul is physically stronger than anyone he’s ever boxed.
That said, even at 44 years old, I don’t see Floyd Mayweather slipping. Mayweather is an extremely proud person and I think he’s going to have Paul throwing at air all night. I see Mayweather doing a ton of damage to Logan Paul’s body in this one.
With the size disadvantage, I’m expecting Mayweather to get in and out while working the body. He will land up top, but the body work will add up. Come the later rounds, I think Logan Paul will be tired with a beat up body and I expect Mayweather to finish the job and win the boxing match.
Prediction: Floyd Mayweather by TKO – Round 6
