After months of heated arguments, Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather are just hours away from their pay-per-view exhibition match. The event, organized by Fanmio and Showtime, will take place on Sunday evening, June 6 at 8:00 PM. EST. It is available for purchase on your favorite devices and can also be seen on Fanmio.com.
The fight between the YouTube sensation and the legendary boxer has been going on for a long time. Though Mayweather retired with a professional fighting career record of 50-0, he was taunted by Paul on social media to the point where he just didn’t want to hear it anymore. The reported $100 million payday he aims to score from the event may also have contributed to his decision to step out of retirement.
In each case, Floyd Mayweather Jr. He has a lot to lose if he doesn’t come out on top in this fight. His undefeated career will be tainted with an asterisk noting that he lost to Paul, whose record as a professional boxer is 0-1, in an exhibition match. Meanwhile, it’s just the opposite for Paul, who has not much to lose but everything to gain. Paul’s career won’t deteriorate too much if he loses the fight, but he would get huge accolades if he takes home the upset win.
Most people seem to expect Mayweather to handily win the match. At least that’s the consensus on social media. A popular tweet is of a video clip of a boxer being instantly knocked out in the video game Wii Boxing, suggesting that’s what will happen to Paul tonight. “Leaked footage of the fight,” the tweet reads.
“I really hope @FloydMayweather beats @LoganPaul tonight, I’m tired of hearing about some random internet guy,” tweeted another Twitter user.
Even some people who rely on Paul still feel like he’s screwed. One person posted another GIF of an instant knockout and wrote, “I actually want to [Logan] to win, but this is what’s going to happen.”
It is clear that Mayweather is the big favorite in this fight. Yet there are many people who simply do not want to count Paul. Given his 0-1 pro boxing record, it would be very easy to underestimate Paul, and as some fight fans have pointed out, Logan can only throw one punch properly to have Mayweather lie flat on his back and watch the lights.
“I’m telling you now, no matter how good a boxer you are. One punch can change everything,” reads a tweet. “The size difference is huge. Logan has a real chance and I can’t wait to see it.”
“My dream was that @LoganPaul would win the boxing match with a first-round knockout,” said another.
And someone else supporting Logan tonight is brother Jake Paul, who wrote in another tweet: “Time for you to break the simulation tonight @loganpaul I’m beyond proud of you. It’s your turn to show the world see how the f** k we do things. Go get this W, we’ll go crazy.”
We’ll know for sure what happens in a few hours. LoganPaul vs. Floyd Mayweather will go down on Sunday evening, June 6 at 8 p.m. EST. You can find out more about the event and purchase pay-per-view entry by visiting Fanmio.com.
