Former heavyweight virtuoso Mike Tyson has no doubts that Floyd Mayweather will floor Logan Paul in their upcoming clash and says the same directly to Logan’s face on the latter’s own show.
Since its official announcement, the Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul fight has become the talk of the boxing town.
The upcoming super exhibition bout featuring the fifteen time world champion Floyd Mayweather and YouTuber-cum-boxer Logan Paul, who has starred in only one boxing match against fellow YouTuber KSI, will take place on 20th February and several icons of the sport have already given their verdicts on the bout’s outcome.
While for the majority, picking “Money” as the favourite is a no-brainer, but there have been some instances from a number of boxers who believe the underdog might have the upper hand in some cases, like Oleksandr Usyk who claims Logan has one particular edge over Mayweather.

Mike Tyson makes his verdict clear to Logan Paul on his own show
All that being said, Mike Tyson has no doubts on the outcome of the match. An invitee of Logan Paul’s own show “Impaulsive“, the former boxer made it clear to the host that he stands no chance against Mayweather.
“Floyd is going to beat [Logan Paul’s] f—ing ass,” Tyson said in the show, “But it’s going to be good, though. He’s going to fight back … [Mayweather] might let you hit him a couple of times to make the show look good. There’s always a danger when two men go into the ring. Anything can happen.”
Mike Tyson, who himself marked his comeback to the squared circle against Roy Jones Jr on 28th November and clinched WBC’s latest “Frontline Battle Belt”, narrated Mayweather’s enthusiasm for the gym, which still keeps him top notch despite retirement.
“Let me tell you something about Floyd,” the 54-year-old went on, “no matter what anybody says about him, he’s always in the gym. He’s a gym rat.”
“He retired, and he stayed in the gym. He can’t help it. He doesn’t do drugs, but that’s his heroine,” Tyson added.
