Fans blast Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul as ‘worst fight of all time’ and ‘battle of the cuddles’

06/07/2021

FLOYD MAYWEATHER and Logan Paul's exhibition bout was blasted ‘the worst fight of all time’ and ‘battle of the cuddles’.

Mayweather was unable to knock out his much heavier yet novice opponent after eight rounds in Miami.


It meant there was no official winner – with viewers certainly feeling on the losing side.

Mayweather started cagey as he gaged the range, with Paul sticking behind a respectable jab thrown from the waist.

As the fight grew, the boxing legend picked up the pace and was evidently looking for the finish.

But 26-year-old Paul, content with a moral victory going the distance, used his physical advantages and ring smarts to grab and hold.

The safety first tactics saw him avoid the KO defeat many predicted, though fans were left fuming.

One said: "I really just watched a 8 round hugging match for 30 mins."

Another said: "They robbed everyone in the arena and on PPV. Worst fight ever."

One, posting a video of Mayweather promising a KO, posted: "Battle Of The Cuddles."

Mayweather, 44, officially hung up the gloves in 2017 after beating ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, 32, in ten rounds.

He did return a year on to beat featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a similar exhibition to the one with Paul in Miami.

Mayweather's ring rust and age appeared to show as he admitted to being surprised by his opponent.

He said: "I had fun, you've got to realise I'm not 21 anymore but it's good to move around with these young guys, test my skills just to have some fun.

"Great young fighter, strong, tough, he's better than I thought he was.

"As far as with the big guys, the heavyweights, it's going to be kind of hard.

"But he's a tough, rough competitor, it was good action, had fun, I was surprised by him tonight.

"I fought against a heavyweight, but I had fun. Even though he's not got that much experience, he knew how to use his weight and tie me up tonight.

"I had fun, pretty sure he had fun and hopefully the fans enjoyed it."
