Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Logan Paul were face to face before the exhibition that they will hold on Sunday at an event to be broadcast on Showtime PPV, from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
This is what both fighters commented in the pre-fight press conference:
“It’s going to be fun. It’s what I do. There is a difference between being a YouTube fighter and an elite fighter. I am a boxer. I have been a professional for 25 years and have faced the best and I’ve seen all the styles and I have always won.
“Why fight Logan Paul? It’s huge on YouTube. He has many followers. Before I even encountered YouTube, I was a great boxer. And when we join his world with mine this will be fascinating.
“I am so glad that He is confident. I’m glad that he believes in himself. Last time I checked, the 50 fighters I faced all said the same thing. They said they would beat me and nobody could.
“I never worry about height or size, it’s all about ability. That’s one thing about Floyd Mayweather, I have enough skills to beat anyone. ”
“I think I have to knock him out. I did not choose boxing, boxing chose me. I was challenged by boxing and I responded to that challenge. I perfectly fell in love with the sport. To tell the truth, boxing is perfect for me.
“I’m going to fight with all my heart. That’s the beauty of this sport. In almost any other business, experience is going to trump everything else. But this is a fight and anything can happen.”
