If a big part of boxing is showmanship, the Logan Paul/Floyd Mayweather fight is world-class.
Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather hopped on the scales Saturday … and the weigh-in was a well-produced, splashy show, featuring music, commentary, a huge crowd and lots of smack.
The weigh-in went down in Miami … the prelude to the pay-per-view match which goes down Sunday night in Miami Gardens.
Logan Paul weighed in at 189.5 pounds … barely under the maximum of 190. Mayweather came under the 160 lb limit at 155. There’s also a 6-inch height difference in favor of Logan.
Logan entered to “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses. He said his presence “proves this sh*t is a simulation.” And then, he went on … “None of it’s real. The aliens are coming in June. Just be ready. Tomorrow, I break the f***ing simulation and beat the greatest boxer in the history of the planet.”
As for Floyd … his message is simple as he yawned at Paul’s presence …“Height don’t win fights,” he said. “Weight don’t win fights. Fighting wins fights, and at the end of the day, I can fight.”
The fight has drawn massive interest, both inside and outside the boxing world, thanks in big part to Logan’s showmanship. Check out the video he dropped Saturday night … fueling even more interest in the fight.
It’s pretty crazy … Mayweather’s 50-0, and Paul is 0-1, so it seems ridiculous on its face. But, boxing is full of surprises, so ya never know.
Mayweather says he’s gonna pocket $100 mil from the fight.
Boxing is changing in a big way.
