Floyd Mayweather will KO Logan Paul in four rounds and afterwards 'Jake Paul can get his turn', says ex-sparring partner


FLOYD MAYWEATHER has been backed by his ex-sparring partner to knock out Logan Paul in four rounds – and said brother Jake 'can get his turn' next.

Mayweather faces the YouTuber this Sunday in an extraordinary exhibition bout in Miami.

But things turned personal at the pre-fight press conference at the start of May as Logan's little brother Jake stole the boxing superstar's hat.

It sparked a mass melee with the Pauls and Mayweather, who even landed an uppercut on Jake, 24, leaving the social media star with a black eye.

But the brawl was only the start of things to come, predicted Ashley Theophane, a once valued member of Mayweather's team.

Theophane, 40, told SunSport: "Floyd will win by knockout. It’s an exhibition but you have a YouTuber vs a legendary boxer.

"Floyd will take Logan Paul out within four rounds then Jake Paul can get his turn."

Mayweather, 44, returns to the ring four years after officially hanging up the gloves, following his win against ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, 32.

But he did box one year later, blasting out featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a similar exhibition to Sunday's headliner.

Logan, 26, on the other hand is Mayweather's most under-qualified opponent of all time, at least on paper.

His only two fights were against online rival KSI, 27, the first a white collar bout in 2018 which ended in a draw.

The pair turned pro a year later, with Logan losing by split-decision, leaving his pro record standing at 0-1.

He has a height and weight advantage, but two-weight world champion Badou Jack, promoted by Mayweather, laughed off those attributes.

He told us: "I think he could stop the fight whenever he wants to. The size doesn't matter.

"He could hit him to the body or whatever, this guy's not a real fighter. I think he's just going to have some fun and play around with him.

"If he wants to stop him, he'll stop him, if he wants to put on a show he'll do that."

Jack, 37, was set to rematch Jean Pascal, 38, on the undercard before his light-heavyweight rival was pulled out amid a failed drugs test.

The Swedish-born spent his training camp at Mayweather's Las Vegas gym but never bumped into the American great due to their differing schedules.

But Jack revealed Mayweather has been training non-stop, such is his dedication to the sport.

He said: "He's a competitor, he wants to look good so of course he's going to train hard even if this is probably going to be an easy fight.  

"His mentally is still the same, he'll work hard and put on a show for the fans." 

Theophane, who recently released his book 'Raised By The Hood' – which includes training camp diaries with Mayweather – has witnessed first-hand the legendary training regime.

He said: "He’s probably the most driven boxer I’ve come across in my life. Sometimes you don’t know how long the round is.

"You’re just boxing. Fortunately for me I always sparred Floyd when I was in great shape."
