Floyd Mayweather claims Logan Paul bout wasn't 'real' and he would have KO'd YouTuber in first round in pro bout | The Sun

FLOYD MAYWEATHER claimed his exhibition with Logan Paul was not a 'real fight' – and would have won in round one if it was.

The American legend returned to the ring in June 2021 for the eight-round spectacle bout, and gave away TWO STONE in doing so.

And Paul scored a huge moral victory after taking it the distance, meaning no winner was technically declared.

But Mayweather has now insisted had the fight been professionally sanctioned, with his 50-0 record on the line, then it would have been a different story.

He said: "I did an exhibition with the YouTuber Logan Paul. We had fun.

"People have gotta know, there's a difference between a real fight and an exhibition. All I did was work out from time to time.

"If it was a real fight, it would've been a blowout in the first round."

Mayweather hung up the gloves as a pro in 2017 after beating ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor in ten rounds.

But he has since returned in exhibitions, and did so firstly against featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23, in 2018.

Mayweather knocked out Mikuru Asakura in two rounds of their exhibition bout – in front of old rival Manny Pacquiao.

Asakura had no defence for a barrage of right hands coming his way and he was eventually floored just as the bell sounded.

Mayweather has since confirmed he will fight in Japan again – amid talk of an epic rematch with Pacquaio.

He recently stopped YouTuber Deji in the sixth round of a one-sided fight.
