    It’s a joke, but I can’t blame them. What goes through someone’s mind when they decide, yeah, I’ll pay a tenner to see that. Just shows how bad boxing is when this is a big draw I guess

    Another exhibition fight for Logan.. against Mayweather

    I'll watch it. I mean it's not boxing it's more WWE but there's a chance YouTube man may get his head smashed in which would be entertaining.

    Anyway speaking of WWE more heavyweight journeyman merry-go-round this weekend with Parker vs Chisora.

    Parker has a new trainer now he's lost Kevin Barry who has managed to derail many a career.

    Be interested to see if Parker has a bit more venom. He has talent but I just don't think he has the killer instinct to be a champ.

    Mayweather will lame it out for 10-12 rounds so as not to embarass Logan and make more money and win on points. Sorry for spoiling it.

    It will go the same way as the Mcgregor one. Logan will swing and miss for 7-8 rds, get tired and Floyd will unload, forcing a stoppage.

    It will an exhibition so I'd assume 6 rounds max.

    I can't imagine it going beyond the first 2 minutes really without it being blatantly choreographed to everyone watching.

    Mayweather gets paid whether he knocks him out in round 1 or in round 6. I won't pay for it but assume they'll be free streams or replays.

    There's quite a big size difference between them isn't there? But yeah, I can't see it being anything other than Floyd avoiding damage and sniping until Logan is out of breath.

    Read that Floyd can't go over 160lbs and Logan can't go over 190lbs

    It's not boxing. It's a YouTube guy having a celebrity boxing fight against a retired boxer. It's got nothing to do with actual boxing. If Logan Paul was being given sanctioned fights against ranked fighters I'd agree with all the pearl clutching but he's not. This is just YouTube celebrity culture and the fact Mayweather will do anything for money.

    It’s being sold as boxing though, and people will buy the $50 PPV tickets to watch the “boxing” match. there’s an undercard and everything

    But it has no bearing on the rankings or what fights will be made among the proper professionals. If you've seen any of the clips of the Askren fight the whole thing was a bizarre Circus freakshow.

    It's akin to Soccer Aid, which is equally irrelevant to actual football.

    I have REALLY mixed feelings on it. I don't really know what Logan Paul is or does but if he gets kids into boxing, then fair enough.

    However it runs the risk of making a mockery of the sport, which has been twatted by money men anyway.

    I actively avoid you tubers but you'd have to be on another planet not to have heard about Logan Paul.

    I only know of these people because of the boxing, the only you tubers I’ve ever heard of before are pewdiepie and Hannah minx.

    As for rankings and sanctions, so what? Who really knows who’s ranked where and by which governing body apart from serious boxing fans? This fight is more like the proposed ESL than Soccer Aid

    @Rum_Monkey I've heard OF him but couldn't tell you what he does. Would assume streaming. But then I don't really do streaming.

    My youtube is literally RLM and trains

    It's really not though. It's one of a series of one-offs opposed to a structured ongoing tournament.

    This is the equivalent of boxing kangaroos in the 1890's. I doubt it will bring the "noble" art of pugilism into disrepute.

    Professional boxing is utterly corrupt and infested with organised crime at every level. YouTube numpties are low down the list of the sports problems.

    If there's one thing I learnt from Tekken, it's don't mess about in a fight with a kangaroo.

    These youtube fights are just a scam. Mayweather could do Logan Paul some serious lasting damage if he wanted. It's likely in the contracts that he can't. Just a joke.

    That Japanese fellow Mayweather fought was embarrassing. Mayweather barely even hit him and he was flying all over the place. Can't imagine Logan taking a dive would be good for his image though.

    It’s a childish prank that appeals straight to the hearts of his child fanbase
