Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, nicknamed Iron Mike, admitted he was impressed by Youtuber Logan Paul’s boxing performance against undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather.
On Sunday, Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather faced off for an exhibition match at Miami Gardens Florida’s Hard Rock Stadium. During the 8 rounds, the two sides could not knock each other down and due to the special rules before the match, there was no winner and the fight ended in a draw.
But social media showed they expected a better performance from Mayweather, who had 50 wins and zero losses in his professional boxing career. Others argued that Logan Paul’s humane performance should not be overlooked.
Although all odds were in Mayweather’s favor before the match, Logan Paul put in an incredible performance and managed to draw with the former pro boxer. Paul’s performance was praised by former boxer Mike Tyson.
Here’s what Mike Tyson wrote:
“So @LoganPaul congrats you beat the odds and went 8 rounds with a legend. Now get my product @CopperGel to ease that next day pain”
