Who is Logan Paul?
Logan Paul is a YouTube celebrity; you may also call social celebrity. He is famous for his video content on YouTube, where he has 22.6 million subscribers and 18.7 million on Instagram. However, Twitter followers are a bit less than other social media, which is 5.8 million.
However, he boxed twice before against another YouTuber, KSI. The first match was a majority draw; therefore, it was played again. Logan Paul had lost the second one.
The next fight will be crucial for Paul, but his winning possibility is very low as he is fighting against one of the world's best boxers.
What are the rules for the exhibition bout?
Since Paul is not a professional boxer yet, so there is a divided opinion about the rules of this massive exhibition match; while most of the fans are thinking it as a money-making exercise, the CEO of Fanmio said that it would be a real fight. He also believes that the bout will attract a different demographic of fans as Logan Paul has a completely separate fanbase.
However, the rules are not set yet, but it will maintain all the logan paul vs mayweather boxing match rules, as Fanmio confirmed.
Although there is a size difference between the two boxers, hopefully, rules will be made with that in mind. The fight will be competitive; Paul will get the advantage of his height, while Mayweather will surely take the benefits of his experience.
Although it is an exhibition match, fans are waiting for it as the real combat.
Although Floyd Mayweather retired in 2017 after the fight against Conor McGregor, he fought only one exhibition match against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, which took place on New Year's Eve in 2018 in Tokyo. In his 50 fights, Mayweather won 27 of them by knockout.
On the other hand, Paul is a newbie in boxing; you can consider him as a child in boxing, who also lost his only match to another amateur. So, he might not get any chance to stand in front of Mayweather. Furthermore, his previous experience was not satisfying either.
Paul is only 25 years old while Mayweather is 43 years old, but the age difference should not be a problem. The age gap won't give Paul any advantages.
When you consider Mayweather's experience and all the previous records, it is clear that he will barely get any touch from Paul. The fight is a joke to some of the Mayweather fans, as he is playing with a nonprofessional.
So, Mayweather is everyone's favorite in this bout. Although some blind fans of Paul may predict it a win for him, there should not be any doubt about Floyd Mayweather's win.
Despite all the criticism and backlash against Paul, if he wins, he will be the first man to defeat Mayweather in boxing. The fight might not be played all rounds, it could finish in round one, but it will be exciting. So, if you have excitement and want to watch the stream Mayweather vs Logan Paul live, don't miss the chance to buy the tickets at the current price.
