On Sunday, when the two clash in an exhibition match in Miami Gardens, Florida, can Logan Paul manage the incredible and defeat boxing legend Floyd Mayweather? Even if the Florida Supervisory Committee announces that there will be no contest judges, it will not announce the winner at the end of the eight rounds. This is the problem that dominates the fighting world throughout the week.
However, Mayweather or Paul has a clear way to achieve “victory” because the referee can stop the game or the boxer may be eliminated. Considering Paul’s huge height and weight advantage and Mayweather’s huge advantage in pure boxing skills, the knockout match will definitely be on the table, and when Showtime pays to watch the live broadcast, there will be some additional interest in the performance of the game. .
Whether you can place a bet or not, most listening fans will be interested in who won the battle in one or more ways. Therefore, our experts hindered how they perceive the following actions.

Mayweather’s prediction of Paul
Brian Campbell: Paul’s physical advantage in entering the ring cannot be ignored. The former outstanding high school wrestler and football player is 18 years younger than Mayweather, 6 inches tall, and 4 inches long. He is expected to weigh 45 to 50 rounds. Mayweather has never played against anyone weighing more than 154 pounds, and Paul weighed 199.5 pounds in his professional debut. Expect those unprecedented obstacles to allow Mayweather to suspend at least one or two rounds when measuring the speed and timing of his young opponents. But once he is fully adapted, Mayweather should have zero problems—even when he retires at 44—and be able to land a clean, tough counterattack whenever he likes. The biggest question about Paul’s viability revolves around how accurate his untested jaw compares to the accuracy of a real professional. Paul is hungry and fearless, but compared with Mayweather, his basic understanding of the sport can only produce one result: the halfway knockout.
Brent Brook House: Give Paul another five years of vigorous boxing training, and Mayweather is close to 50 years old, and Mayweather will still be the favorite in the fight. Paul has no way to close the experience gap or reach Mayweather’s skill level. In other words, Paul’s size and strength advantages are very real, and Mayweather certainly knows this. Therefore, Mayweather may slow down in the first round, absorb information and formulate his attitude towards the remaining games. Although Paul’s coach brags that his jab matches Larry Holmes’ jab is obviously nonsense, but I have no doubt that they have done a lot of work on the jab, trying to keep Mayweather away from close range. And use all his technical advantages. It makes sense to choose Mayweather here, but his pride does have some influence. There will be no on-site judges and no winners will be announced, which means that if Mayweather wants to truly declare victory on the basis of “we have all seen”, he will have to knock Paul out. I believe he can and will do this around the 5th round, but must seize some opportunities to achieve this goal, which means exposing the 44-year-old jaw to a man 50 pounds heavier. Look for Mayweather’s knockout in a more compelling battle than many expected.
