The exhibition boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and YouTuber Logan Paul made waves on social media on Sunday night, and many fans weren’t happy about it.
Paul and Mayweather’s exhibition pay-per-view bout went the distance at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, but was relatively boring all the way through.
Most fans who watched from home were extremely disappointed for a number of reasons. Some were shocked that Mayweather would allow a YouTuber to go the distance with him, considering he boasts a perfect 50-0 record. Others were simply mad that they paid to watch it in general.
Papa Doc put up more of a fight against B Rabbit.

Hats off to Logan Paul. He went 8 rounds with greatest boxer ever. Not a good look for Floyd.

the real sad part is these poor boxing journalists who have to kind of sort of pretend this is real

Some felt it even ruined Mayweather’s legacy as one of the best fighters of all time.
THIS DIDN'T COUNT ON MAYWEATHER'S RECORD. BUT THIS WILL BE REMEMBERED AS THE NIGHT HIS LEGACY WAS TARNISHED.

Mayweather will win this. Technically. Via decision.
But if you ask me, he 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.

Floyd not being able to knock out a dude from YouTube is worse than an actual on the books L

Floyd Mayweather lost a lot of credibility tonight.
