The ridiculously hyped (and ridiculously disappointing) boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul is over, and we didn’t even get the satisfaction of seeing either of these assholes actually lose. Devastating.
44-year-old convicted domestic abuser Floyd Mayweather barely broke a sweat in the eight three-minute rounds they fought. He threw more accurate punches – but he didn’t actually land a knock-out hit on edgy YouTuber Logan Paul, so I guess he can’t brag?
Paul is obviously chuffed at the fact that he managed to make the distance and come out the other end intact, which I hate to say is actually kind of impressive considering Mayweather is an undefeated boxing champion. But even then, the actual stats of the game were pretty unimpressive, and people online seem to think the game was a farce.
“You’ve got to realise, I’m not 21 anymore,” Mayweather said post-fight, when referring to his lack of win against Logan Paul.
“But it’s good to move around with these young guys, test my skills, just to have some fun. Great, young fighter. Strong, tough; he’s better than I thought he was.”
The game was disappointing for both casual viewers and boxing fans in more ways than one. Aside from the fact that nothing exciting happened in the ring, there were issues with Showtime’s streaming app, which actually crashed – preventing some people from watching much of the game.
On top of all that, there was also a storm that flooded the ring at some point , interrupting other fights – which to me, just seems like an omen. Even the universe was telling Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather to fuck off.
The only even mildly entertaining part of this over-hyped bullshit was the accessory Logan Paul was wearing around his neck – a chain with an original Charizard Pokemon card estimated to cost around $190,000. The guy is obsessed with collecting rare Pokemon cards, even calling it an ‘addiction’.
I guess if you’re going to be facing one of the greatest boxers out there, you may as well flex as hard as possible, right? And it gave us something to laugh at, since we didn’t see Logan Paul get his ass handed to him. Sigh.
