“I Had Fun, I’m Not 21 Anymore,” – Floyd Mayweather

Published

The fight between boxing star Floyd Mayweather Jr. and YouTuber sensation Logan Paul ended with no winners. Floyd Mayweather as expected managed to dominate the show’s bout against YouTube star Logan Paul that lasted eight rounds at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.

Mayweather put on an entertaining performance despite failing to overthrow his opponent on the court of the American Football team, the Miami Dolphins.

Since the fight against Paul is just a show and is not categorized as a professional and licensed fight, there is no jury to determine the winner and only a knockout will determine the victory.

“I had fun, I’m not 21 anymore,” Mayweather said.

“He’s a great, young fighter better than I thought he was. He’s a tough raw competitor, I was surprised by him tonight. I want to thank all the fans who came out, I want to thank the fans who bought pay per view,” he added.

Paul, who is going through his third fight after two encounters against another YouTube star, KSI, hopes to repeat the fight against Mayweather, 44, in the future.

“It’s one of the greatest moments of my life. I’m happy to have made it out,” he said.
