Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul is OFFICIAL (Is it good for the sport?)



floyd mayweather vs logan paul

Floyd mayweather is going to be fighting logan paul on february 20th in 2021, it has been confirmed by floyd himself that this exhibition bout is going to happen on pay-per-view, although a lot of you are a bit skeptical that this would happen after what just happened with jake paul fighting nate robinson but now we’re having not only a professional boxer versus a youtuber,  We’re having the greatest boxer of all time versus a youtuber and this changes the game completely not only for boxing but for mma as well.

This can also be a bit worrisome even for mma fans if we’re having someone on floyd mayweather’s level taking these kind of fights, it means that we’re probably going see this as more of a norm,  there’s going to be more of these fights that are going to happen especially if floyd versus logan paul becomes successful on pay-per-view.

If the numbers come out and it proves to be what i think is one of the biggest pay-per-views of all time, we are definitely going to see guys like Canelo fight youtubers and other professional boxers will follow through and  even mma fighters might cross over into the ring to fight youtubers.

A lot of boxers are in the sport to make money,  they will jump to the deal if they see that floyd gets paid 200 – 300 million dollars fighting logan paul, which is essentially not even as challenging as a sparring match in his gym.


What is stopping other boxers doing the same, Canelo’s is going to be like –  “i could probably make 100 million from one of these guys or maybe 50 million”.

MMA fighters like conor mcgregor or jorge masvidal, and many guys can come into the sport of boxing and do the same sort of thing and not lose sweat nor risk getting hurt at all.

They do not need a training camp to handle one of these youtubers – now this is a good and bad thing for the professional fighters.

The good thing is easy money to fight a popular youtuber like one of the paul brothers, now the bad thing about all this is that it will hurt the credibility of the sport –  if boxers do it,  it’s going to hurt the sport of boxing and if mma fighters are going to do it, it’s going to hurt mma.


Although one fight is not going to do enough damage but if it keeps happening,  if it becomes a norm, people are not going to look at these sports the same way as usual, it’s not going to be serious sport where the actual professionals should be taken seriously and ultimately these youtuber fights are going to draw on a different kind of crowd.

A lot of people that will watch the fights are the people who watch guys like Logan Paul on youtube and not specifically the hardcore fans of the sport.

We just had jake paul versus nate robinson in a boxing match,  now we’re having the greatest box of all time fighting another youtuber and that is what i think is the thing that might hurt this more than anything else. We don’t know what the cost is going to be for this pay-per-view it might be 100,  it might be 60 or 50.

I am predicting that this pay-per-view is going be one of the biggest pay-per-views in boxing history, floyd holds many pay-per-view records in the sport of boxing and this is definitely going be one of the top.


It’s going to draw in another crowd that may shock a lot of people, how many people are going to be interested in this ?

There is an argument that these kind of fights can draw in more attention to the sport of boxing of which  i agree but not when you have someone as credible as floyd fighting someone like logan paul because everybody knows it’s  going to be a walk through for floyd.

Floyd does not need the fight to be fixed to do his work, he doesn’t have to train for the fight,  he’ll win this easily but everybody knows it’s a cash grab,  it’s an easy fight and it’s  not going to be competitive.

People aren’t going to be as interested in seeing a professional boxer fight a youtuber.

Previously, logan paul lost to ksi in a boxing match, imagine what a professional boxer would do to him. I know a lot of people who are not as knowledgeable in martial arts cannot really comprehend how much skill matters.


It doesn’t matter how big logan is, it doesn’t matter how powerful he is, it doesn’t really matter how fast he is, it doesn’t matter how athletic he is, it doesn’t matter how young he is – the skills of a professional boxer will always triumph over someone that just relies on size.

So my official prediction for the fight is that,  floyd mayweather will handle him pretty well, does whatever he wants to him, I don’t think he knocks him out in the first round although it is a huge possibility that can happen if floyd comes out right away and just tries to go for the knockout.

I don’t know what the rules are going to be for the exhibition fight, probably similar to mike tyson and roy jones fight but for a professional boxer versus a youtuber who have had like two amateur fights,  they’re going to  have some more restrictions so logan paul doesn’t get hurt.

Maybe headgear, maybe bigger gloves, maybe less rounds – there are a lot of things that might change compared to tyson vs roy jones which was between two legends of the same age.


I am predicting that floyd mayweather is going to win,  i have a feeling he might just carry it and not try to hurt logan paul that much.

If i was a youtuber, if you were a youtuber,  i guarantee we would all do the same thing so you can’t knock the youtubers for trying to do this.

What do you guys think about this flight, do you guys like this kind of fights happening occasionally or often?

Do these kind of fights hurt or help the sport?

Adesanya excelled in martial arts at a tender age and was even enrolled in a taekwondo club he attended after school. His mother withdrew him when he sustained an injury. At 12, he and his family relocated to New Zealand, where his remarkable journey began.

After the unfortunate incident that cut his taekwondo journey short, he had no interest in going further, but the persistent bullying he experienced during childhood and adolescence changed that. After graduating high school, Adesanya enrolled in college and took up kickboxing, much to his mother’s displeasure.

Notable Achievements

At 21, he began training in MMA in New Zealand. He found his future home in City Kickboxing while he was there. Adesanya debuted in pro kickboxing in 2010, following an amateur record of 32-0.

Adesanya joined the UFC in 2017, debuted in 2018 at UFC 221, and won by TKO. He began his career there by beating Rob Wilkinson, Marvin Vettori, Brad Tavares, Derek Brunson, and MMA idol Anderson Silva. In 219, Adesanya beat Kelvin Gastelum to win the interim UFC middleweight title. The pinnacle of his ascent came in 2019 when he dethroned Robert Whittaker to claim the UFC Middleweight Championship.


Since then, he’s defended his title three times, earning a place among the world’s top pound-for-pound fighters. He has an astounding record of winning 24 fights out of 27, losing just three fights.

Other Notable Achievements

 Adesanya made history as the first African-born UFC champion. While simultaneously holding the Glory Kickboxing Middleweight Championship, he etched his name in the annals of combat sports. His three consecutive successful title defenses in the UFC paralleled those of the legendary Jon Jones.

Beyond the cage, Adesanya is a multifaceted individual, excelling as a businessman with his clothing line and even venturing into the world of music.

The Grasso vs. Shevchenko Debate: Bisping Calls Foul on Split Draw



Michael Bisping, the former UFC middleweight champion and current analyst, didn’t hold back his frustration over the judging in the main event of Noche UFC 227. In this headlining bout, Alexa Grasso retained her UFC flyweight title in a polarizing split draw against Valentina Shevchenko.

Moments after the final bell, Bisping vented his displeasure on Twitter. He declared, “Shevchenko won the fifth,” emphasizing her dominance during most of the round. Despite a momentary mount by Grasso, Bisping firmly believed that Shevchenko deserved the nod in round five. Expanding on his thoughts in a follow-up YouTube video, Bisping dissected the fight’s dynamics. He argued that Shevchenko had landed more significant strikes and controlled the center of the cage for the majority of the fifth round despite the brief mounting by Grasso.

Valentina Shevchenko vs. Alexa Grasso at UFC 227

“Shevchenko was outworking her,” Bisping contended. “She was landing more strikes, controlling the center, and racking the points. Then, she got caught in a mount. However, she escaped swiftly, took no damage, and didn’t lose ground control.”

Bisping didn’t stop there; he also criticized Judge Mike Bell‘s decision to award Grasso a 10-8 score in the fifth round. Traditionally, a 10-8 score signifies complete domination by one fighter, which, according to Bisping, was not the case in this round. I can’t fathom giving Grasso a 10-8 in that round,” Bisping expressed. She didn’t do enough to secure a two or three-point win in that round. She won it, but it wasn’t a landslide. Bisping’s critique of the judging in Grasso vs. Shevchenko resonated with fighters and fans on social media. Many believed Shevchenko dominated the fifth round, rendering the split-draw verdict contentious.

Despite the controversial decision, Grasso and Shevchenko showcased their exceptional skills, making it an exhilarating match. Nonetheless, the dispute over the judging marred an otherwise fantastic fight. It’s essential to remember that MMA judging is subjective, and disagreements over fight outcomes are par for the course. However, in this instance, the consensus leans heavily toward Shevchenko deserving the win.

Immediate Rematch for Israel Adesanya Against Sean Strickland at UFC 293 is a Silly Idea According to Robert Whittaker



UFC 293 where Sean Strickland instigate one of the biggest upset in UFC history

Robert Whittaker has called it “silly” if Israel Adesanya gets an immediate rematch with Sean Strickland after losing to him at UFC 293. The former middleweight champion doesn’t think Adesanya deserves an immediate rematch, as he believes that Strickland should first defend his title against another contender.

Whittaker’s comments come after Adesanya lost to Strickland via unanimous decision in a stunning upset at UFC 293. It was Adesanya’s first loss since 2019, and it snapped his 22-fight unbeaten streak. Adesanya has since called for an immediate rematch with Strickland, but Whittaker believes that Strickland should first defend his title against another contender.

Robert Whittaker

The No. 1 midweight division contender.

“I think it’s silly,” Whittaker said of Adesanya getting an immediate rematch. “I think Strickland should defend his title against someone else first. He’s just won the title and should defend it against someone else first. That’s how it should be done. Whittaker also pointed out that Adesanya has already had two rematches in his career, both against Marvin Vettori. Adesanya defeated Vettori in their first fight at UFC 243, but Vettori avenged that loss at UFC 263. Adesanya then defeated Vettori again at UFC 276.

“I don’t think Adesanya deserves an immediate rematch,” Whittaker said. “He’s had two rematches already in his career. He’s had two cracks at Marvin Vettori. I don’t think he deserves an immediate rematch. It remains to be seen what the UFC will do. They could grant Adesanya’s wish and give him an immediate rematch, or they could make Strickland defend his title against another contender first. Only time will tell what the UFC will decide.

In the meantime, Whittaker is waiting in the wings. He is the No. 1 midweight division contender and is eager to get his shot at the title. If Strickland does defend his title against another contender first, Whittaker will be the next in line to challenge for the belt.
