It comes as no surprise there was trash talk during the contest and one moment saw Paul bring 'Money' in close for a word.
Post-fight, the 26-year-old explained: "No, no. I never got hurt.
"He worked the body more than I was used to in sparring.
"When you've got a guy like Floyd who's been doing this his whole life, he knows every single button.
"And yeah, he worked the body more than I had been used to.
"But no, I did enough exercises, I did good. I do sit-ups. Oh! I said that to him bro, I was whispering in his ear.
"He hit me in the stomach, I was like, 'B*tch, I do sit-ups.'"
Mayweather, who retired from professional boxing in 2017, dominated huge spells of the fight against Paul who came in with a 0-1 professional record.
No judges were present for the contest and no official winner was crowned at the end.
Despite admitting he had fun stepping back in the ring, Mayweather hinted he'd be calling it quits for good this time.
The 44-year-old stated per Bloody Elbow: "We don't know what the future holds, but I'll talk it over with my team and see where we go from there.

"You've got to realize, I've been in this sport 25 years. And I understand that I'm not 21, I'm not 25. But I had fun tonight."
Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza then followed up with: "This may be - despite everything that I've tried over the last six years - this may be the last time we see him in the ring. And, so, whether you like the exhibition or not, whether you agree on the opponent or not, give this man his flowers today.
"They said he was too small to lead the sport of boxing, said there's a small guy, wasn't gonna make money.
"They said a guy who left a big promoter wasn't gonna have a successful career. Back in 2014, they said he was done. The other network let him go because they thought his best days were behind him.
"And we saw the last of him in 2015, he gave us a little bonus in 2017. Record-breaking bonus. Gave us a little taste in Japan, gave us another little taste, another reminder. I just wanna say, there will be some criticism, but we can't pay attention to that.
"Give this man his respect. For every true boxing fan, it is a joy to see this man in the ring each and every time he is in there."
