Floyd Mayweather & Logan Paul met at Miami’s lavish Gianni Versace mansion and have a stone-faced staredown for the ages
Floyd Mayweather and his young opponent, Youtube sensation and part-time boxer Logan Paul met in Miami’ at the lavish Gianni Versace mansion. It was attended by media and boxing notables from all around.
The stylish event featured the luxurious home of the late fashion designer/business mogul Versace. Brawlers Sports Media CEO Rick Mohamed was there covering the event.
He met up with former Boston Celtics great ,NBA Hall of Famer Paul Pierce. He also had a brief audience with Jarrett “Swift” Hurd, who faces Luis Arias as part of the undercard in the Floyd vs. Paul fight, scheduled for Sunday, June 6 in Hard Rock Stadium @ Miami Gardens, FL..
The 2 principals met and held a lengthy face off that would unnerve lesser men, but Floyd, a veteran of such actions, can stare down with the best of them. Logan Paul is up against one of boxing’s all-time greats, but there are rules of engagement for this match.
This fight is a “special exhibition” match, and it has certain rules: knockouts allowed;
no official winner;
the referee decides on what is a knockout;
there will be 8 three minute rounds;
results don’t count in the professional records of either fighter;
both will wear 12-ounce gloves; and
this fight is NOT sanctioned by the Florida State Boxing Athletic Commission.
Floyd’s undefeated record will stay untarnished and remain at 50-0; Paul’s record will also remain where it currently is: 0-1. Boxing insiders have been constantly asking Floyd one question: Why?
He has nothing to prove, and his undefeated record shows it. Why fight a non-fighter like Paul, who, along with his brother Jake, are just a pair of Youtube sensations who generate millions of dollars a year making wacky videos on Youtube?
Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe says that even he doesn’t fully understand Floyd’s reasons for doing some things. He just decides to do it, and that’s that.
Floyd’s nickname is “Money”, and this fight is being sold for $49.99 on SHOWTIME PPV. All he needs is a few million fans willing to watch, and he’ll easily make a cool $100 million.
He won’t make that much versus most of today’s fighters, the biggest of whom he’s already fought-and beaten. Canelo, Pacquiao, MMA star Conor McGregor, and even the aging returnee, Oscar De La Hoya, all faced Floyd and lost.
There’s no need to fight them again, but when it comes to Floyd “Money” Mayweather, who knows?
