    Well, it's official. Floyd Mayweather will face off against Logan Paul on February 20th, 2021. I'm actually pretty shocked at this news. It's hard to wrap my mind around how the boxing world in general would let this happen. I can completely understand this being a smart business move on both fighters sides, considering the ridiculous amount of money the McGregor vs Mayweather fight brought in. But this isn't even close to what that was.

    The McGregor fight was an actual boxing match that had a chance for both fighters to win. And even though it wasn't traditional and shoved two different sports into one another, it was a serious fight. This isn't that. This is an obvious cash grab for everyone involved.

    I'm no Floyd Mayweather fan but I have to give the guy credit. He's probably the greatest boxer of all time, no matter if I disagree with his "defense", aka run away the entire match approach. Logan Paul is a youtuber that lost his last fight against another youtuber.. I think he's won 1 fight out of 2, and the win wasn't anyone actually pertinent in the boxing world.

    So let's take the greatest boxer in history and pit him against a youtuber that has a tiny, 50/50 boxing record. Why? Money.... It just seems embarrassing for the entire sport of boxing. If Floyd doesn't knock Paul out in the first 30 seconds I would be shocked and even more embarrassed for the sport.

    Logan Paul is 6ft 2in and 200 pounds.

    Floyd Mayweather is 5ft 8in and 150 pounds.

    I think this is a more interesting fight than you are giving it credit for. Sure Floyd is world class and Paul is certainly not. But Paul is a good boxer. And he is far stronger and bigger than Mayweather, who is not known to destroy fighters with knock out blows. He is known for defense, so I think this is certainly a money grab, but also more intriguing than just that.

    I'd have to agree. I think the difference between both fighters really makes it an interesting fight. I think the size difference just might even some things out across the board.
