VIDEO: Did Floyd Mayweather Admit His Fight with Logan Paul Was Fake?
Floyd Mayweather possibly had the worst night of his fighting career against Logan Paul. On June 6, the unbeaten boxer failed to grab a win against an Internet superstar. Although the fight ended in a draw, several people saw it as a loss for Mayweather. However, ‘TBE’ bagged over $100 million that night, and departed with a handsome payday which many boxers can only dream of.
That said, Floyd Mayweather has passed some uncommon comments that seem to raise several eyebrows from the combat universe. The 44-year-old boxer connected with the media in the post-fight press conference of Gervonta Davis vs Mario Barrios fight. Per Mayweather, he can unveil such big paydays by stepping into a ‘fake fight’.
Floyd Mayweather said, “All we care about is results. You Know, I can do a fake fight and get 100 on him.”
While these comments could have disheartened several fans, Mayweather didn’t seem worried about the same. After dropping the bombarding statements, ‘Money’ departed the stage with a smirk on his face.
