Two of Floyd Mayweather’s past opponents were seen together on Monday, although the two are on a completely different magnitude when it comes to the sport of boxing. Logan Paul, the YouTuber-turned-boxer had visited the camp of former eight division world champion boxer, Manny Pacquiao.
Former WBA (Super) welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao is currently preparing for his much anticipated comeback fight against the undefeated unified WBC and IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr on 21st August at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Logan was glad he fought Mayweather instead of me: Pacquiao
The Filipino boxing legend is currently training at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California, where he was paid a surprise visit by none other than ‘The Maverick’ Logan Paul, who is recently off of an exhibition boxing contest against Pacquiao’s former rival, Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The WBA’s ‘Champion in Recess’ took part in a sparring contest with Logan, as his recent post on Instagram revealed. On top of that, the 42-year-old also took a dig at Mayweather.
“Honored to have @loganpaul come by Wild Card Gym today. After watching me work out he said he was glad he fought Mayweather instead of me,” Pacquiao wrote captioned his post, along with a crying laughing emoji.
The Mayweather vs Paul exhibition bout, that took place on 6th June at the Hard Rock Stadium concluded without a KO, and the judges did not decide on a winner. In the process, Logan became the first boxer in history to hold his ground against Mayweather, who has won every other fight in his career, including his 2015 blockbuster against ‘PacMan’.
Ahead of the fight against Spence, Pacquiao has been on a trolling mood against Mayweather. Recently, the Filipino senator took a dig at ‘Money’ by saying that he needs not mentor Spence ahead of their clash, and also added that ‘The Truth’ is a better boxer than Mayweather himself.
On the other hand, Mayweather had already admitted earlier that even at his age, Pacquiao is still as dangerous as ever and despite having defeated him in May 2015, the mentor gave a word of caution to Spence as well about the upcoming August fight.
