Mayweather: This fight will not go the distance

FloydFloyd Mayweather has made some bold declarations ahead of his boxing match against Logan Paul. In a promotional video for sports betting outfit, Mayweather guaranteed that the exhibition fight will end before the allotted eight rounds.

The fight between Mayweather and Paul, scheduled for this Sunday on Showtime pay-per-view, is an exhibition boxing match where rules allow for a maximum of eight rounds. However, Mayweather warned viewers not to expect a complete, eight-round bout.

“This fight will not go the distance, I promise. Bet on it,” Mayweather said.

He also stated that he will absolutely knock Paul down, and that bettors should bank on it happening. The oddsmakers’ numbers project the same as the odds are -350, implying a 77.8% probability Paul will fall.

“Will Logan Paul hit the canvas? Absolutely, bet all of your money on it,” Mayweather said.

Whether or not these expectations come to fruition remains to be seen, but it’s clear that Mayweather is focused and not taking his opponent lightly. The five-division champ is a massive -14/1 (1/14) favorite against Paul, which means a bettor would have to risk $1,4/1 just to return $1/1 for a victory.

The legendary fighter makes a few more predictions for the prop bets that is offering ahead of the fight. You can find all of the available props below, and more will be added this week.

  • Why not fight his brother who is at least 3-0 and more active recently… Where is this going for Floyd? Yes he’s a legend and all but Manny Pacquiao is fighting a dangerous opponent in Spence while Floyd is, I don’t know what he’s doing anymore.

    • You do realize he’s going to fight Jake right? Its a part of the story line and Floyd will get a double money grab.

    • He is retired and making money in a second career after professional fighting. Pac Man is somebody else. Just because one man does something doesn’t mean that you have to the same. He is his own man

  • It’s just an exhibition. Boxing history is filled with them. Ali ‘boxed’ NFL players in exhibitions.

    • yeah it’s a strange situation really. Exhibitions have always been a thing, but modern technology means they garner much more interest. As a result, it seems like people are making way too much money for something so trivial. Difficult to know who to be mad at really. I am going to the event anyway because I am a fucking idiot haha. Also an excuse to go to Miami haha

      • @CB-I guess it would be kinda fun to go to the fight. I mean, I honestly don’t think I’ll be doing anything more exciting this weekend…go to the fight, be around all the excitement, check out some beautiful women in Miami and attending the fight, witness this travesty live!!! As lame as the idea is, it sounds like a good time to me!

        • You should get another hobby Kris if you call this farce entertainment.

          • @Spoonbill-Yeah, maybe I can start hanging out with you! You sound like a happening dude!

        • Haha thanks for your support. I even bought a ludicrously bright jacket for the trip

        • Kris: my thoughts exactly. Its all about the atmosphere and getting to talk some crap from the stands! Yes, sounds like a fun time

        • They are no beautiful women left in Miami. See recent news clips of South Beach for proof..

          • “They are no beautiful women left in Miami.”
            – None at all ????????????

          • I live in Miami and that was good, remember people from Miami don’t go to South Beach it’s mostly outsiders and some ghetto people from the area

          • People from Miami don’t go to South Beach it’s been infested by parasites

        • Just providing some closure on this Miami debate. Weekend in Miami was phenomenal, however that was the worst boxing event I have ever been to. Fight was pointless, no effort was made to provide a good surrounding show, and lastly, the stadium was that empty, there was no atmosphere. Peace

  • I don’t know, Joey Buttafuoco said the same thing before he fought Chyna, and he didn’t knock her out.
    Don’t be so sure, Floyd.
    Don’t be so sure.

    • I remember that one. I was thinking to myself there’s no way the TV network would allow a woman fighting a man unless they were 100% sure Chyna was going to win – I sure turned out to be wrong about that!

  • There’s no reason this fight should go beyond the first round. Mayweather was an Olympic boxer, a 5 weight division World Champion, 50-0, beating the best fighters over past 3 decades, and arguably the best fighter of the past 30 years. Logan has a total of two fights, both against a fellow YouTube star. I guess the first was a draw, and the second was somehow sanctioned as a pro fight, and he lost! Size and age difference mean very little in this case. Mayweather should be able to end things the very second he chooses to do so. He’ll prolly ride it out a little and try to give the moron fans their moneys worth, that’s the only way this fight goes beyond a round.

    • I’m with ya! My ONLY concern is May’s brittle hands. Even if his hands give him give him troubles, he’ll still box this clown’s ears off.

    • They have probably rehearsed this several times already. Makes professional wrestling seem real.


  • The Paul Brothers are a bigger fugazi than COVID and Biden. I hope Mayweather knocks both of them out.

  • I would rather pay to see Obama & Biden lip lock, then smoke Newports for 2 minutes, then watch this shit.

    Whomever pays for this is a fucking retard.

    Mayweather is besmirching his legacy, and he does not give a shit. And why should he? Anyone that pays for this is a fucking retard. No crime on Mayweather’s part.

  • I would endorse putting your entire bank account on Mayweather at -1400. No way a novice beats him unless something bizarre happens.

    • I could see the other Paul (I couldn’t tell you which is which, because they’re just clowns) sneaking into the ring and hitting Floyd with a chair. However, just as it looks like Floyd is about to take the full 3 count he manages to get his shoulder off the mat. An audience member (let’s say a screaming woman decked in I luv Floyd gear) climbs into the ring and scratches the villain Paul. And as his brother tries to pull the screaming banshee off, Floyd delivers the best right of his career to his ear knocking him clean out. The Referee doesn’t count, but does take a pull off a flask prior to raising the still undefeated Mayweather’s arm.

      I guess it’s a safe bet! I’m still not watching. I don’t begrudge a man cashing in, but I haven’t watched Wrestling since the Ross/Emily Season on Friends (worst Season ever!!!)

  • See how all of you gave Haney crap even though he put on such a dominant performance, I don’t blame Floyd for fights like this. Screw the fan and make your money. Some fighters put themselves on the line and so-called fans hate on them. Fxxx the fans. Make the money.

  • I am sooo stoked for this “fight”.
    Just kidding……………….

  • Fight of the year. I don’t care for the haters – this will be the hottest fight since May V Noctoruios.

  • For a Guy who ran alot and didnt get hit alot during career,he acts like he has Brain Damage…This proves That Mayweather during career was a ducker ,picked boxers at right time to fight and didnt care about the sport reputation…The truth in actions always comes out…
