Floyd Mayweather collides with Logan Paul in an epic exhibition bout as the five-weight world champion shares the ring with the YouTube superstar in Miami, from midnight on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Box Office“I’m on the fence as well. My parents would f—ing kill us. They don’t want that,” Logan Paul said. “My dad is a hard ass from Ohio but he still don’t want that. My mom doesn’t want it, my friends don’t want it. No one wants it that’s close to us. We have never sparred. I think I’m better, he thinks he’s better. We have different coaches and different styles.
“I don’t know, I don’t know! Give us three years to hone these skills and let’s find out who is better, once and for Paul.”
The differences between the brothers are as stark as what makes them similar. Asked to explain that, Logan could only laugh and respond, “How much time you got?”
Nicknamed the “Problem Child,” Jake is covered in tattoos and clearly the much more impulsive of the two. He has thrown himself into the sport of boxing with reckless abandon and wants to be taken seriously for his efforts in doing so. Older brother Logan, while more calm and jovial on the surface, seems to contrast that by making a joke of just about everything, including his chances of defeating Mayweather.
“We are yin and yang. I’m sure he would say the same thing. We are the exact same and the exact opposite,” Logan Paul said. “We could not be more alike and could not be more different. We are brothers to the T, white and black. He is the ‘Problem Child’ and I’m obviously an angel, for sure. I love the kid. He’s the side of me that I am not.”
The only thing that is assured about Sunday’s fight from the standpoint of Jake’s role is that despite some early reported pushback from the Mayweather camp, he will be allowed inside the stadium for the fight despite the whole “Gotcha Hat” episode.
“I will be there. Floyd, I think, got over his little bitch fit,” Jake Paul said. “I [have been] helping [Logan] in training camp, I’m helping him with his strength and conditioning, his mindset, meditation, all that good stuff. I will be there rooting for him in the front row. I think if anyone in the world can do it, it’s Logan Paul.”
Regardless of what happens in Sunday’s outcome, Logan Paul swears he will be back inside the ring again and that a potential loss won’t slow the momentum of the Paul brothers making their disruptive move into the sport.
“Do losses matter?,” Logan Paul said. “Conor McGregor just got his f—ing ass beat and got meme’d pretty bad. It has been loss, loss, loss, loss. He’s also the highest paid athlete in the world. I don’t know. Can you put on a show? Do people want to come and watch you fight? Sheesh.
