"P****d Off" Floyd Mayweather Doing Sessions At Midnight And Training For A Fight Ahead Of Logan Paul Exhibition
| Last updated
Floyd Mayweather is "p****d off" and training at midnight ahead of his highly-anticipated boxing comeback against Logan Paul.
Mayweather returns to action next month when he takes on YouTube star Logan Paul in a bout billed as an exhibition.
But the 44-year-old is preparing for his fight with Paul like one of his many world title clashes, according to his training partner Denis Douglin who says he's impressed with what he has seen in the gym.
The American fighter was "blown away" by Mayweather's training and reckons 'Money' will make Paul pay for everything he has said in the build-up.
He told the Betway Insider blog: "I think Floyd thought taking his hat was disrespectful and it looks like it has lit a fire under him from what I saw at the gym. I was very impressed. I think that had to do with the Paul brothers p*****g him off.
"Floyd's one of the greatest in the world - but I didn't think that he was going to train intensely for this.
"But now they've p****d him off now, so he's turning it up. What I saw today from Floyd was very impressive.
"I was blown away. I was kinda expecting him to do a cookie cutter workout, shadow box and spar someone really bad just to stay active. That's what I was expecting.
"But I came into the gym at around midnight and the energy and atmosphere in the gym felt like a real Mayweather fight. Floyd looked great, man - he didn't miss a beat."
Douglin added: "Still cocky, still having fun, still crafty - it was a real sight to see. Watching him get rounds of sparring, hitting the bag, on the pads - he had great energy. I learned a lot just watching that.
"Floyd was to be the best in the world and he retired. So while he's not taking this fight with Logan Paul as seriously as a real fight against Errol Spence for example, he's taking it as seriously as he needs to for what this fight is - which is for a kid who's a little bit crazy and disrespectful, who does not understand the craft of boxing.
"Floyd's going to teach him boxing's an art. It does not matter if you're bigger than me, or stronger than me because I have boxing skill. Floyd is one of the best technicians in the sport and I feel Floyd is taking that seriously.
"He has a need to show this kid boxing is about skills and not just a fight - it's a science. 100 percent he's going to make him pay."
