Ahead of Sunday's eight-round exhibition against Logan Paul from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla., Floyd Mayweather Jr. called the event a 'legalized bank robbery' .
Mayweather and Paul was precisely what the former said it would be as the exhibition had little action and went the distance, much to the dismay of the crowd.
According to Compubox, Mayweather connected on 43 out of 107 punches (40.2%), while Paul was 28 out of 217 (12.9).
"I had fun," Mayweather said in his post-fight interview. "You got to realize I'm not 21 anymore. But it is good to move around with these young guys, test my skills, just to have some fun. (Paul) A great young fighter, strong, tough. He's better than I thought he was."
The opening rounds saw Paul trying everything he could to connect on a Hail Mary shot, but Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) slipped out of the way every time and avoided damage.
Mayweather started bringing pressure in the fourth round and started walking down the YouTube personality. Anytime Mayweather would land a shot, Paul would grab Mayweather and hold on for his life. The hardest punch of the fight occurred in the sixth round when a Mayweather combination buckled Paul for a quick moment.
Heading into the eighth round, the expectation was Mayweather would put a fading Paul out and give the fans something to cheer about. Instead, Mayweather circled the ring, and Paul was smiling right back at him. The crowd loudly booed the antics until the final bell.
"I don't want anyone to tell me that anything is impossible ever again," Paul said in his post-fight interview. "The fact I'm even in here with one of the greatest boxers of all-time proves that the odds can be beaten. I'm "The Maverick". I go right when they go left. I'm the unorthodox one. I'm the independent one, and everyone has it in them.
Despite the displeasure of the crowd, Mayweather said he's up for another exhibition in the future.
"Yes," Mayweather said when asked if he'll do another exhibition. "I fought against a heavyweight, But I had fun even though he don't got that much experience, he knew how to use his weight, and he knew how to tie me up. I had fun. I'm sure he had fun."
