    It was just fun. Mike Tyson talked to Logan on his talk show and ate 4 gram's on mushrooms on the show. (Tyson) Mike knew and so did Logan how it was going to go. There's a greater reason to this fight. To bring peace and not kill eachother and have a friendly fight. This was amazing. They changed history

    How can anyone say it wasn't good... It brought tons of new eyes to a dead sport basically. An the whole reason it was intriguing was because Logan was so much bigger then Floyd. Most of the so called pros said Logan had no chance to survive, he did an did well... it was Floyd Mayweather an if Logan was smaller he knows he would of had no chance. That was the point.

    Stephen A Smith is couldn’t be more wrong.
    You can see the discontent for the Paul brothers ever time he speaks on them.
    First it’s they haven’t fought a real fighter, then they haven’t fought a real boxer.
    Stephen A Smith said that Logan Paul didn’t have a chance against Mayweather, Yet Logan Paul went all 8 rounds. Stephen A Smith said Logan Paul wouldn’t be able to touch Mayweather, yet Logan Paul repeatedly punched Mayweather.
    I’m not saying Logan Paul won or lost, but Stephen A Smith was 100% wrong on his prediction. Now Stephen A Smith is just making up excuses.
    According to some sources the said that Mayweather scored 15 punches more than Paul. Now think about that,… that is less than 2 punches per round more.
    If Mayweather in fact scored those punches & “won” the fight, then He barley won that fight.
    Also Paul threw more than a 100 punches in total then Mayweather. Paul was more of the aggressor.
    For all of you people saying that Mayweather held Paul up to extend it to 8 rounds & make himself look bad. What would be the point?
    Simple fact is,.. Logan Paul is a good boxer & at the level of a beginning pro fighter. If he continues to box he will only get better.
    Oh lastly,…
    Professional boxers have been cherry picking easy fights for more than a hundred years. It gets them ring time & helps them pad their stats.
    Just look up any of the best professional boxers first dozen fights, & se the boxers they were boxing.

    You see , in the sport of boxing many different countries have given great fighters through history, that's why to say that x or y boxer is the best of all times is kind of tough to do. A boxers is as good as the level of competition he came against to. Take for example Rocky Marciano, a great STRONG fighter and tough cookie to crack, and yet his level of competition in the heavy weights don't stack up to the likes of Ali, Foreman, Frazier, Liston, Tyson, Holyfield, Lewis and Holmes at their respective primes. Get what I am saying?.

    At 135/140/147 pounds, did Floyd Mayweather in his prime ever fought the likes (at their primes) of Sugar Ray Leonard (at 147) , Duran (at 135), The hawk Prior (at 135), Arguello (at 135), The radar Benitez (at 140/147), Macho Camacho (at 135), The cobra Hearns (at 147) and Sugar Ray Robinson (at 147) ? NO, therefor we know that the level of competition that Floyd fought in his illustrious career is lower (except maybe for Pacman and an older way off his prime De La Holla + an older Miguel Cotto and Mosley ).

    YOU ARE AS GOOD AS THE COMPETITION YOU COME AGAINST. That is why Ali and Duran are among the top 10 in all time p4p lists. Ali fought in the heavy weight golden era and Duran career expanded over 20 years from lightweight all the way to middle weight in one of the golden ages of boxing (if not the most memorable because of the raw talent in almost every class of weight).

    Is not about ending your career with an undefeated record, it is about who you fought against. Marciano, Calzaghe, Lopez , ect ALL had an undefeated record also and yet they do not come even close of making top 10 P4P of all times. That is a FACT. Talent, boxing abilities and reflexes can take far but NOT far enough to guaranty a top 10 P4P because it all depends on your competition.

    When it comes to been considered top 10: pay per view numbers, millions earned per fight and ending undefeated (0 loss) simply does not cut it. That is why , even thou Mayweather is already retired , in the 10 P4P of all times you don't see his name mentioned above Ali, Duran and Robinson.
