Logan Paul's sparring partner explains how YouTuber CAN KO Floyd Mayweather but tips legend to be 'too smart' in fight

YOUTUBER Logan Paul CAN cause the mother of all upsets by knocking out Floyd Mayweather, his sparring partner claimed.

But it would take a shot so unorthodox and unexpected, not even modern-day legend Mayweather would see it coming.


Paul, 26, moved his training camp from Los Angeles to Puerto Rico in February after announcing plans to live in the Caribbean island.

The social media sensation spent time sparring in the Team La Perla gym in San Juan and shared some rounds with amateur boxer Lucas Ruiz.

Ruiz, who mimicked Mayweather's famous elusive style, revealed he urged Paul throw his right hand to utilise his THREE STONE weight and SIX INCH height advantage.

He told SunSport: "Overall, I've got to say; Logan Paul could knock out Floyd Mayweather, if he learns how to time his punches and finds him rhythm, his timing, his range.

"He's long and he knows how to use his range a little bit. I told Logan the right hand is the shot, because Mayweather is shorter than Logan.

"Logan is taller and he can throw a bomb that can land. I think this is the first time Mayweather is fighting somebody as big as Logan Paul, to be honest.

"That man, Logan, he's big, I'm not going to lie. I'm 5'9, I believe Mayweather is 5'8, and you can definitely tell the size difference.

"Logan is muscular too, he's in shape, I'm telling you. I hope Floyd don't go to sleep on him."

Despite the physical attributes, truthfully Paul is lightyears away from Mayweather in all aspects in the ring ahead of their June 6 exhibition.

He has boxed only TWICE before, both against online rival KSI, the first of which a white collar bout resulting in a draw.

They turned professional one year later and KSI, 27, emerged victorious by scrappy split-decision.

Mayweather, 44, on the other hand retired officially in 2017 after beating ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, 32, in ten rounds.

He hung up the gloves with a historic 50-0 record and as one of the greatest to ever do it.

Paul's challenge is more akin to mission impossible made only worse by the fact Mayweather has left no stone unturned in the gym.

It leaves Ruiz, 24, from Philadelphia and set to turn pro next year, backing the American great to restore order against his most under-qualified opponent of all time.


He said: "I'm not going to lie, if Floyd stays in shape like he always has in his career, he's too smart for him.

"He's the GOAT. He's a mastermind, having the discipline, and the heart and determination, Floyd's resume don't lie.

"I'm not going to lie, Floyd being the GOAT, I know he's going to take over mentally first and if physically he has the power to land the correct shot, I have no doubt.

"But, I do think Logan has the chance to knock Mayweather out, if he throws some crazy, well-time right hand.

"But overall, I think Mayweather's going to box him mentally and even if he's got to go to the later rounds to knock him out.

"Real fighting is different to just training a couple of years. That isn't disrespect to Logan or nothing like that."
