    Default Floyd should be embarrassed..

    I never watched the Floyd/Logan exhibition live.

    After waking up in the morning, and realising there was no knockout from Floyd it’s obvious he should be completely embarrassed.

    We get the money, we get the exhibition and we get the weight difference.

    These exhibition fights are on the rise, and even though Floyd is retired he didn’t put on any show.

    He could have at least KO a youtuber?

    Hopefully we won’t see anymore of this rubbish unless a KO is guaranteed!

    Did we really expect Floyd to ko a guy 5 inches taller and 40 pounds heavier? Really?

    It's as if it was set up so both could say they won to set up a rematch or floyd v the errrrr undefeated Paul....

    Floyd is retired for a while now and he's not really relevant anymore so if he can fleece some people out of millions we'll good for him... I doubt it will do much to help or harm boxing though.

    I was just glad it didn't get any mention . I fully grew to expect Floyd as one who would continue the mega-fund circus shows but to see Showtime now carry direct was more of a low blow. Exhibitions with greats you can respect but this is Mayweather literally collecting cans from the dumpster. But hey Luis Arias scored an upset on number world ranked Hurd so yeh. Strange world this boxing. Manny sits on the cusp of reaffirming a stamp on clash of eras greatness.

    Floyd has been an embarrassment for a long time. He fights non-boxers for the attention as he does not need the money but craves the attention that someone with low self-esteem has.

    Many Pac is a true great and shows more class.

    To be honest, I have only watched highlights, but it wouldn't surprise me if Mayweather carried Paul.

    This whole event just seemed like a way for Mayweather to showcase his newfound head of hair & pristine beard.

    He'll be back so long as he keeps making millions.

    I expect he'll be on the phone to Homer Simpson next to try & finish the job that Drederick Tatum couldn't.

    I watched the fight for free on one of them streaming sites and still feel robbed.

    I don't see fights like this as a good or bad thing for boxing, they just are what they are. They're not boxing. It was a glorified spar without headgear.

    People who say its "sad" that Mayweather is doing this. There's nothing sad about making 30 million dollars. Mayweather is retired. Nothing he does in exhibitions has any affect on his boxing legacy. As soon as casual fans stop taking these exhibitions seriously they'll understand that.

    As to the fight - Did people seriously think an inactive Mayweather at 44 was just gonna walk through a 20 younger guy, that is 30 pounds heavier than and is an athlete and was there to survive ?

    Look at the size difference



    Logan Paul would have been hit WAY HARDER in sparring than what Mayweather hit him. But ppl thought Floyd who isn't a pressure fighter or a big hitter was just gonna KO him ?

    I don’t think Mayweather carried him. It took three rounds for Floyd to stop being wary of the size and power of a much much bigger man (who had clearly trained very hard for this) and wait for him to fatigue

    Mayweathers plan was to keep the tomato can busy, tire him out and then stop him later like he did with mcgregor ….. but he couldn’t.

    You could see him getting frustrated by the tomato cans holding, and - crucially - Mayweather spotted the right openings, but just couldn’t pull the trigger quickly enough anymore.

    Joke of a contest of course

    Mayweather won't give a fuck what anyone thinks about him, this did over 1 Million PPV buys at $49.99 and Floyd is rumoured to getting 50% of the buys on top of his fight fee.

    That's serious money..... about $65 Million serious

    I don't like these BS exhibition bouts at all but when guys are earning that kind of money they will obviously take it.

    Logan Paul is the 3rd highest earning "Boxer" over the past 12 months behind only Canelo and Joshua

    There's now serious talk of Carl Froch fighting Roy Jones Jnr and even Frank Bruno fighting Jones too.

    Yep - I'd be embarrassed too for that kind of money and that's the bottom line.

    I completely agree it's disgraceful and Paul has earned more now than most boxers in a career. Plain wrong.

    Can we fault Floyd ?

    From a boxing fan perspective almost certainly. From a personal financial point of view then sorry no you can't

    Floyd always has been and still is a Genius at self marketing..... there's a reason he's nicknamed "Money"

    there must be some benefit to boxing tho and the earning power of boxers no?

    Unless your clever with what you earn at domestic level (invest it in Bricks & Mortar/Sound business) it won't last long.

    Only the PPV fighters are earning big money.

    I don't see any worthwhile reward in a fighter barely making British title level and getting his brains punched to fuck over a 5-8 year career, most (not all) fighters come from shit backgrounds with little education which is why so many end up skint alcoholics or junkies and seriously go off the rails.
