Floyd-Mayweather dominates comeback exhibition match against YouTube star Logan Paul

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather (44) dominated the exhibition match against YouTube star Logan Paul (26), but failed to send his opponent to the ground. For the multiple world champion, it was the first return to the ring since December 2018.

At the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, “Money” Mayweather and Paul faced each other in an eight-round three-minute match. There would be no referee and an official winner, that much was already clear before the duel. However, a knockout would have been allowed.

Mayweather, who actually ended his career in 2015 with a perfect record of 49-0, missed it against the 18 years younger and up to 30 pounds heavier opponent. So the fight went over the full distance, even if Paul increasingly ran out of breath and especially in the last two rounds there was a lot of clinging.

According to Compubox statistics, Mayweather landed 43 hits out of 107 hits, which corresponds to an impressive hit rate of 40 percent. 36 of the 43 hits were also power punches, Paul only hit 28 of 217 hits (hit rate: 13 percent).
