Earlier this week, Floyd Mayweather was on Clubhouse to help promote the release of his NFTs in partnership with IronBend, Reality Gaming Group, and Zytara Labs. While on stage answering questions, Paul’s brother hopped on stage was and said, “Get off Clubhouse my brother is going to be your a**.”
Mayweather then responded by stating he is in a no win situation.
“If I knock him out in the first round, fans will say it wasn’t worth it. If I let it linger, they will say I should have knocked him out in the first, but I’m here to entertain people,” said Mayweather.
Mayweather was asked the follow up question why he decided to fight on a Sunday?
He replied, “The Super Bowl is on Sunday, the All-Star on Sunday, and award shows are on Sunday. I wanted to do something different, and Sunday is a calm day, and everybody is at home.”
On Friday, Logan Paul told CBS.com that MMA is beating boxing’s ratings.
“MMA was kicking boxing’s ass,” Logan Paul told CBS Sports during an interview with Showtime cameras this week during training camp. “Now everyone is interested in boxing. The model is being replicated time and time again. You got Triller now, you got Social Gloves and just the weekend after our fight there is TikTokers and YouTubers fighting. Jake just got a deal with Showtime. At what f—ing point is it legit?
“Wake up and smell the coffee. We are here and we are here to stay.”
Logan’s younger brother Jake added, “We are bringing in a new light and a new wave,” Jake Paul said. “That’s because of the YouTube celebrity boxing culture and us bringing Instagram and all of our followers over. It’s all new people who are wanting to pay for fights who normally wouldn’t have.”
The fight between Logan Paul and Mayweather will take place on June 6th. So, make sure you tune in.
