Betting Value on Logan Paul
Yes, we know. How could you possibly pick Logan Paul over the legendary Floyd Mayweather. We’ll let’s just say Floyd wants a huge payday, he could carry Logan Paul a couple of rounds and make a mistake. Boxing is a game of inches and there is no one better at real life chess than Mayweather.
Eventually, father time catches up with us all. Especially in combat sports, we’ve all seen our childhood heroes go too long, and eventually, the hungry lion comes up and takes it all away.
Logan Paul is technically cruiserweight and would be more suited to fighting a heavyweight at catchweight. According to DAZN, the weight limit of 160lbs for Mayweather and 190lbs for Paul, who at 6’2” stands four inches taller than Mayweather.
That all being said, this exhibition fight will take place on Showtime PPV so Floyd won’t want to make a complete mockery of the sport – or will he? What I’m expecting is another masterclass of Floyd’s showmanship, being able to sell a fight and entertain the crowd – while still making Paul look like he still has a chance to crush the 50-0 boxer.
Pick: Floyd Mayweather by TKO/KO.
Betting on Mayweather vs Paul Takeaway
Obviously, Floyd Mayweather is the clear favorite. The last time the 44-year-old entered the ring was on New Year’s Eve 2018 when he defeated Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa via first-round TKO in an exhibition match.
His last professional bout was a 10th round TKO of UFC star Conor McGregor in 2017, improving his career record to 50-0.
Ultimately I think the betting odds are locked in for this fight. Mayweather will remain a sizable favorite over Paul, expect some huge wagers coming on from the sharks in favor of Mayweather and those newer to the sport who think Logan Paul has a chance.
