I Finally Watched Mayweather vs Paul

This morning, I finally watched the Floyd Mayweather/Logan Paul fight on Showtime. YouTuber Logan Paul stepped into the ring with one of the greatest boxers ever and he went the distance, making it through 8 rounds of nothing.

It’s easy to go the distance when your opponent won’t even punch you. That definitely helps. Put me in the ring with Mike Tyson and, as long as Tyson promises not to actually make contact with any of his hits, I should be able to go the distance too. Of course, if Tyson did accidentally make contact, I’d probably die on the spot.

The Mayweather/Paul fight was only an exhibition match so I can’t get too angry about it. It wasn’t a real fight and no one pretended like it was, except maybe for Logan’s idiot brother, Jake. Still, I feel bad for everyone who paid money to watch it. During the final round, Logan Paul spent over 20 seconds with his hands down, just staring at Mayweather. Mayweather could have easily flattened him with one punch. Exhibition or not, I don’t blame anyone who was booing after the final bell rung.

As Howard Cosell might have said, “A sadder display will not be found.”
