Although Paul weighs more than Mayweather by about 16 kilograms, and is 15.2 centimeters taller, and his age is about 18 years younger, Mayweather gave a boxing lesson to his young competitor, but without delivering the knockout blow that many waited for.On the other hand, Paul withstood a series of punches, especially in the rounds that took place in the middle of the fight, amid an attack from the 44-year-old Mayweather.
Mayweather, who retired from boxing after winning 50 fights and no defeat, later admitted that he underestimated the strength of Paul, who had only fought one fight before that, and ended up losing to a famous YouTube user.
“You have to realize that I’m not 21 anymore, but it’s good to move in with such guys, to test my ability and have some fun,” Mayweather said. “He is a young and strong boxer, stronger than I expected.”He added, “He is a fierce competitor and I was surprised by his level tonight. It was a fun night.”
In addition to the sense of fun, the American boxer known as “Mani”, which means “money”, said that he expects to get more than 50 million dollars from this fight.
Paul, who has more than 20 million followers on YouTube, will also get a huge payout.
