What if Logan Paul fights tall and times Mayweather?

Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

What are the odds?

Logan was actually a really good wrestler. High level high school and wrestled for one year at Ohio State before he dropped out of college.


I have sparred college wrestlers and one thing you notice is even when the guy is smaller than you they are chimp strong in the clinch.


In Logan's case he will also have 40 pounds on Floyd.

So if the ref let's him tie up Floyd and bang way at his flanks it could get a little messy.

That's about the only real chance I see for Logan to get in any work.


And I doubt the ref will allow much if any dirty boxing.

I have my doubts too.

I wonder who the ref is, but I doubt it matters. Floyd has a ton of pull in boxing. The ref from the Conor fight didn't let him work in the clinch. This is a much bigger man here. Boxing rules are that a fighter can work so long as he doesn't hold and hit (I believe) and up until the ref says break.

When doing a Google search for the ref this came up from six months ago. Joe Rogan speaks some truth here

I worry about Floyd. He seems to crave the spotlight and if he keeps on boxing one day the Floyd we know won't show up. I think he needs the spotlight, new money, and probably spends it like crazy. Boxing is all he knows and likely has a lot of yes men that won't advise him in anyway.

Real or not we are headed towards a fight with Jake Paul. The young man now has a Showtime contract and is more serious about the sport than his brother is or ever was. Logan doesn't seem to have that dog in him necessary to pull it off. He could lose and will get nothing but praise and even more fans.

Jake has been training for a couple of years and is fighting Woodley which is the right fighter for him to progress.

JP looked a little sloppy against Askren, but still scored a knockdown. That was an early stoppage though (seen it once). Against Nate Robinson from what I remember he used a lot of tools. Fighting on the backfoot, clinching, using his height/range, and counter punching. This fight on Sunday will tell us a lot as will JP's next fight.

He already got under his skin too and it could happen again. These guys aren't worth the trouble especially at this age. They are so much bigger. Floyd could beat both, but I don't see things ending well for him inside and outside the ring. His ego will be his downfall imho. Reflexes are the first thing to go and he never had power.

Australia
No winner & No judges
Knock outs allowed
8 X 3 min rounds
12oz gloves, no headgear
Weight limits: Paul to be maximum 190lbs in the ring of $100,000 for every pound over. Floyd expected to come in around 160lbs


For my 2 cents, I don't see either one of this coming out looking amazing. Wouldn't even rule out a moral victory for Paul by way of him making it scrappy enough to smother things and Floyd not being big enough or a big enough puncher to truley keep things the way he wants.
