Despite them being pole apart in career stats & everything, it seems like this is about to be one of the most mismatched boxing matches in history.
Mayweather vs Logan Paul
Mayweather has the nickname ‘Money’ for a reason. Mayweather loves a dollar bill more than anything else and that is no secret. He has pocketed the most amount of money in his entire career than any other boxers ever. He has made more than a billion-dollar alone in this sport. So this time it is going to be no different than that and Mayweather will take a huge chunk of money out of this fight against Logan Paul.
Like 99.9% boxing fans, Mayweather himself knows he is most likely to win this bout. But there is much more at stake than just winning a boxing match.

In every boxing fight like this, Mayweather usually earns about 300 millions dollar. Therefore, he would want to make as many dollar bills as possible from this highly unmatched yet surely exciting boxing event.
Apart from all the stats and enormous technical aspects, Logan Paul just can’t be whisked. There’s always a question swirling in the air that is ‘What If?’. Despite the fact Paul lost his fight against KSI last year, he still has the physical advantage over Mayweather. Paul is 6ft 2 inches in height and weighs 13st 8lb in whereas Mayweather is 5ft 8in tall and weighs 10st 7lb.
