Eddie Hearn: Floyd Mayweather Looked ‘Quite Terrible’ Against Logan Paul


Eddie Hearn was not impressed with what he saw from Floyd Mayweather.

Mayweather took on Logan Paul in an exhibition boxing match this past weekend in a contest that saw both fighters last the full eight rounds with no winner crowned.

The major surprise was that it lasted the full distance because many observers expected Mayweather to knock the YouTuber out despite the age and size disadvantage.

Instead, it was a huge win for Paul who can now say he lasted eight full rounds with arguably the greatest boxer of all time.

And Hearn thought Mayweather looked terrible to put it kindly.

“This never felt comfortable for me, the person this looked worse on than anybody, and he probably doesn’t care, is Floyd Mayweather,” Hearn said in recent interview (via Boxing Scene). “He looked quite terrible. If you’re a young fan, you see Floyd Mayweather last night you go, ‘He was the best ever?’ I know that Logan Paul was hugging around, but I don’t know, I always said from the outside it was a bad look for the sport.

“I don’t mind Jake Paul against Tyron Woodley, he’s taking the sport seriously. They’re on a similar level.”

While Hearn expects the event to do well on pay-per-view, he did expect to see more tickets sold at the Hard Rock stadium in Miami, Florida.

“What’s happened to the world? I didn’t stay up to watch, I woke up in the night to check my Twitter,” Hearn added. “I couldn’t believe how few tickets they sold. It’s kind of weird. I’m sure it performed well on pay-per-view but it looked like there was nobody there.

“That was my first thought. I just saw some clips and I’m like, ‘What has happened?’ It caused some interesting debate. I saw Ricky Hatton say he was quite appalled. Being a promoter I’ve learned not to criticize too badly because you never know what you’re going to do in the future.”

Perhaps Father Time is really catching up with the 44-year-old Mayweather.
