Floyd Mayweather Claims He Would Have KO'd Logan Paul 'If It Was A Real Fight'

When Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul went all eight rounds in their exhibition boxing match earlier this year, fans could smell something fishy.

During the post mortem of the event, there were all sorts of theories being thrown out about a possible 'no knockout' clause in the contract or even claims about the bout being 'fixed'.

Both Mayweather and Paul have strictly denied these conspiracies since the spectacle back in June - well, until now it seems.

"People have gotta know, there's a difference between a real fight and an exhibition," he said at a recent WBC conference.

"I did an exhibition with the YouTuber Logan Paul. We had fun.

"All I did was work out from time to time. If it was a real fight, it would've been a blowout in the first round."

A "real fight", huh?

Many people were skeptical about the fight and this confirms exactly why.

Logan and his younger brother Jake have burst onto the boxing scene in recent years.

Through sheer trash-talk and willingness to call out anyone under the sun, the siblings have managed to bag themselves boxing matches against some of the biggest combat athletes on the planet.

For brother Jake, he has fought MMA duo Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley and is now preparing to take on former Love Island contestant Tommy Fury.

Meanwhile, despite not having a single professional victory on his record, Logan has taken on one of the greatest boxers of all-time in Floyd Mayweather.

Say what you like about the Paul, but they're somehow turning into a pretty big draw.
