Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather is not real boxing

Although the arena was jampacked, star-studded and was loud, don’t confuse the Logan Paul-Floyd Mayweather fight as a real boxing.

UFC president Dana White has given a scorching audit of Floyd Mayweather\’s display session against YouTube star Logan Paul, saying it \’wasn\’t a fight\’.

Undefeated symbol Mayweather will allegedly bring home around $100million (£71m) following the eight-round presentation against the web star, yet it has produced a lot of analysis after the amazing fighter neglected to take his adversary out.

Some furious fans accept the battle was \’fixed\’ in the wake of guaranteeing the 44-year-old purposely prevented Paul from imploding to the material to expand the battle – notwithstanding handling a whirlwind of punches.

The PPV occasion cost as much as $50 (£35) to watch it in the US and around £17 in the UK, yet many boxing fans grumbled they didn\’t get an incentive for cash and blamed the two contenders for \’embracing\’ for the greater part of the evening.

White was cursing of those selecting to pay for the battle, demanding the display was \’so distant\’ from anything he would set up in the UFC.

“That wasn’t a boxing match,” White said in disgust.

\’Like I said before, there\’s always going to be a market for that kind of stuff. There\’s always going to be people that are willing to put down $50 to watch that kind of stuff. That\’s so far away [from what we do].

\’Think about this — imagine if Kim Kardashian wanted to fight Amanda Nunes. How big do you think that fight would be? It would be huge. It would be the biggest [event] but give me a break.\’

White – who has previously been highly criticial of Paul and his fellow YouTuber and brother Jake for both stepping into the ropes – believes glamourous exhibition fights create a lot of publicity and hype but always deliver disappointment.

\’It\’s exactly what boxing has always been,\’ he added. \’You create this energy around a fight where you\’re like, \”Oh this [is exciting]\”, and then you watch it and then you turn the TV off and go, \”I just wasted another evening, I should have went out and did something else\”.

\’I don\’t ever want people feeling like that when they turn the TV off watching some of our fights.\’

Fil-Brit Tiktoker Salt Papi puts the world on notice in latest boxing win

A new Pinoy boxer rising? This might be the case if we’re talking about the social media influencers-turned-boxers.

Tiktoker Salt Papi was the talk of the town after his vicious knockout against Youtube sensation Josh Brueckner, a taller, bigger guy.

The Filipino-British boxer landed a perfect right hand right to the face of Brueckner in just the first round.

They served as an undercard of KSI vs. Faze Temperr.

Pro boxer and rising star Ryan Garcia was impressed by Salt Papi’s victory convincing him that the latter should next face Jake Paul.

They are both undefeated in boxing and all of their wins are via knockout.

After the victory, Salt Papi posted a video clip on his Instagram showing a comparison of his knockout to Manny Pacquiao’s iconic KO hit to Ricky Hatton.

The post received lots of comments including boxing’s only eight-division world champion himself.

Pacquiao wrote on the comment “Pwede Na” in which Salt Papi replied with a “salamat po.”
