Logan Paul confirms the fight is still happening
You’d be forgiven for thinking that this fight fell through all together because of the criticism and absurd pricing system. However, the YouTuber assured his fans that they will get the situation figured out and make the fight happen.
“I’m still going to beat the shit out of Floyd Mayweather or maybe he’s going to beat the sh*t out of me who knows. But the point is, it’s still going to happen,” said ‘The Maverick’.
These comments from the internet sensation not only explained the situation but also gave an insight into his preparations. He seems to have taken this seriously and is not looking at it as a money grab, which he needs to do, given what people are saying about Mayweather.
Whether or not fans agree with this fight, it seems to go ahead. Despite the hiccup, the 50-0 Mayweather will take on 0-1 Logan Paul. How do you see this event playing out? Do you think it will happen?
