The last person to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a boxing match was Serafim Todorov of Bulgaria in the 1996 Summer Olympics.
A script fitting for Hollywood will be needed in order for Logan Paul to become the answer to a trivia question when he faces off against Mayweather on June 6 for an exhibition at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida on Showtime pay-per-view ($49.99).
“It really doesn't matter if I have an intense training camp, or I don't. This kid doesn't have a chance in hell. It doesn't matter where I train. The outcome is going to always be the same. I can't be f------ beat. I'm Floyd,” Mayweather said on Showtime’s “Inside Mayweather vs. Paul” show.
“I get paid the biggest bucks because I kick ass and I beat the biggest names out there. We’re talking about real fighters. This is a YouTuber. C’mon now. This is a YouTuber … Logan is working hard, like the Russian in Rocky IV. Keep training like Ivan Drago, it's not going to work. “
The five-division champion Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) is widely considered the greatest fighter of his generation.
The Hall of Famer and fighter of the decade accumulated generational wealth by beating the likes of Canelo Alvarez, Manny Pacquiao, Oscar De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto, Shane Mosley, Juan Manuel Marquez and Marcos Maidana.
He’s confident Paul will not present any challenges like the ones former champions presented him during their eight-round exhibition.
“I aint worried about the fight. Can't nobody f--- with me. Can't nobody f--- with Floyd,” said Mayweather.
“You don't get all of this [wealth] without being a master at what you do. I may have not invented boxing, but believe me, I mastered it. I mastered the art.”
