Boxing: Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul

Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul 

The date has arrived that those of us who love boxing, and take it very seriously, did not want it to arrive. Floyd Mayweather Jr will face Jake Paul in an exhibition fight next Sunday at the Miami Dolphins Stadium.
Boxing: Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul

The show, to call it somehow, will be pay-per-view in the United States , and the cable television companies that have this option for sale will charge $ 50 to open the signal. And the bad thing is not that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is back in the ring.

Nothing against him. Mayweather is a boxer who showed great level, talent, resources (especially defensive), who was a world champion in five divisions, who faced the best of his time and who retired undefeated.

The problem is the rival. Even if it's an exhibition. Logan Paul rose to fame as a high-impact youtuber , and has appeared in film and television.

But in boxing, he has a fight made (official) and lost it to another youtuber named "KS1" (Olajide William Olatunji) by decision (after two points were taken away from him) in November 2019.

Mayweather and Paul have sought to generate interest by challenging each other, yelling at each other, acting out fighting brushes outside the ring and predicting their respective victories.

At the weigh-in, Logan Paul will surpass Mayweather by at least 40 pounds (could be 50), and outweighs him by 6 inches tall.

The rules of the fight: There will be no judges (therefore there will be no official winner) although the knockout is an option, either effective or determined by the referee.

They will not wear a mask. They will use 10-ounce gloves. And they will fight 8 rounds of 3 minutes. And to top it off, Mayweather and Paul are expected to split at least $ 50 million.

But if they think Mayweather-Paul is the only "circus," the one opening the broadcast may be worse.
