Did Floyd Mayweather Really Take Out Logan Paul? Video shows Paul wobbly after the punch
The Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul fight was anything but a knockout – even though there was one.
While Mayweather vs. Paul was touted and sold as an exhibit bought between one of the all-time greats and an internet celebrity, the fight itself felt a bit more scripted than a WWE match. (Which Mayweather would know about a couple of.)
During the fight, however, Mayweather may have derailed the script: Mayweather landed a flush, hampering, and stunning Paul counter punch.

Mayweather, nailing Paul with a right hand to his ear, trips Paul into Mayweather, who appears to be supporting him. Mayweather probably wanted to help him cross the finish line. No winner was declared in the fight, although Mayweather landed more punches and took Paul out in the fight.
While exhibition bouts aren’t new to boxing – Muhammad Ali fought pro wrestling legend Antonio Inoki in an exhibition bout in the 1970s, after all – the blatant nature of these bouts is not. quite suitable for sport.
In the end, Mayweather and Paul knew exactly what they were doing: playing fans for suckers in an eight-round fight that amounted to nothing more than a huge paycheck for both fighters.
After all, “Money” said it after the fight:
“When it comes to legalized bank heist, I’m the best,” Mayweather said.
Well, no lies detected there.
