Does Logan Paul really stand a chance against the 50-0 undefeated, 15-time, five-weight champion in Floyd Mayweather Jr? This weekend we will find out.
As the two face-off at the home of the Miami Dolphins on Saturday night, the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens will be bouncing.
Billed as ‘Bragging Rights’, Sunday night’s exhibition bout between ESPN’s pound-for-pound greatest boxer of the past 25 years and the YouTube sensation, has caught the public’s imagination.
Not least, after Logan’s brother Jake was involved in an altercation with Mayweather and his crew, when he stole his flat cap from him in a face-to-face during last month’s press conference.
With Mayweather now retired but having made three official comebacks, this fight will be the 44-year-old’s second exhibition match.
Unsurprisingly, the undefeated Grand Rapids native is heavy favourite to make short shrift of his opponent in the Sunshine State, with Betfair and Paddy offering the best market of 1/6.
For ‘The Maverick’, this will be only his second professional bout, after losing his much-publicised rematch with social media rival KSI – the duo’s initial White-Collar fight was declared a draw.
It should be remembered however, that Paul is the far younger fighter and has a five-inch height advantage over Mayweather.
Mayweather appears to harbour genuine dislike of the Paul name, and has promised a knockout, but it is worth considering also, that this is merely an exhibition bout.
A win for Paul therefore is still being touted at perhaps shorter than expected odds, and if you back the man from Ohio to pick up his first victory against arguably the best fighter in recent memory, you can get a price of 11/2 with BoyleSports.
