Roy Jones is giving Logan Paul a ‘zero’ percent chance to beat Floyd Mayweather, and he couldn’t be more on the money.
“You’re talking about the greatest defensive fighter of all time,” Jones said to TMZ Sports. “So it’s very hard to hit him.
“That being said, I don’t give the kid a chance.”
Roy Jones Says Logan Paul Has ZERO Chance to Beat Floyd Mayweather, ‘Are You Serious?’ https://t.co/xKbhGC2sru— TMZ (@TMZ) June 4, 2021
Reporters asked Jones about the cliché “puncher’s chance,” and Roy was having absolutely NONE OF IT.
“C’mon, bro, that’s Floyd Mayweather. Are you serious? If he was Mike Tyson’s size, it’d be different. He’s not Mike Tyson’s size…it’s not gonna happen.”
Prime Mike Tyson was 5-foot-10 anywhere from 217-223 pounds — meanwhile Logan Paul weighed in at 6-foot-2, 199 pounds just a few weeks back. He therefore may have a major height (and reach) advantage over Mayweather, but the point remains: Mayweather is too talented to allow a lucky punch to end a fight. He’s worked 50 straight professional fights, and thousands of punches have been thrown his way. Yet not one lucky punch has gotten him, except for a Miguel Cotto right hand that broke his nose.
Anything we see outside of a landslide Mayweather victory should be handled like the WWE acting that it is. If Sunday’s bout stays professional, this fight ends early with the YouTube star leaving with medical assistance.
