Why Mayweather is the biggest loser

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul There were no judges in attendance, but boxing pundits agree Floyd Mayweather was the real loser from Monday’s bout against Logan Paul.

Although there were no winners in Miami this morning, boxing pundits have agreed there was one big loser.

The blockbuster bout between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul went the distance on Monday morning AEST, with both fighters surviving eight rounds in the exhibition fight.

Fans were left fuming by the lacklustre affair in Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, with the crowd echoing chants of “boo” around the venue.

But Mayweather and Paul won’t care in the slightest — they walked away with combined earnings of AU$151 million.

Because there were no judges ringside to score the contest, only a knockout or TKO would result in a victory for the undefeated boxer or YouTube star.

Mayweather is one of the most successful athletes in history with a 50-0 career record and 27 KO finishes, so why couldn’t he topple a YouTuber who has never registered a professional victory?

For the rest of his life, Paul can boast he held his own against one of the sport’s greatest athletes.

Mayweather leaves with a big paycheque and a tainted reputation.

The American summed it up perfectly after the fight: “When the money comes, we’ll see who’s the real winner.”

ESPN reporter Ariel Helwani said: “If you ask me, he (Mayweather) lost.

“You’re one of the greatest ever. Play around for a couple rounds and then pour it on. He didn’t. He let Logan hang around. Paul surviving is a win for him. He’ll claim victory.”

Former UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier tweeted: “Hats off to Logan Paul. He went 8 rounds with greatest boxer ever. Not a good look for Floyd.”

Boxing writer Josh Katzowitz posted: “Well, Logan survives. And he’s the big winner tonight. He can say he fought the best fighter of the last 50 yrs and didn’t get knocked down. Hell, he can say he won since there was no scoring. I don’t think Mayweather’s rep is tarnished or anything, but it didn’t end well for him.”
