Logan Paul recently claimed that he was “glad” he faced Floyd Mayweather instead of Manny Pacquiao in his recent exhibition boxing match.
Social media sensation Paul clashed with Mayweather on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
The former Olympian was expected to knock out Paul without breaking much of a sweat. Instead, the contest went the full eight rounds and, due to the bout’s unique ruleset, no winner was declared.
While some suggested Mayweather wasn’t trying at all and could’ve ended the fight whenever he wanted, others argued Paul had claimed the moral victory and that Mayweather had harmed his own legacy during the bout.
Just a few weeks later, Paul was back in training camp and paid a visit to trainer Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym in Hollywood where Pacquiao was preparing for his upcoming fight.
In a recent interview with Betway Insider US blog, Roach offered some insight into what went on during Paul’s visit.
The famed boxing coach claimed that at one point, the social media star told him, “he was glad he fought Floyd instead of Manny.”
Who do you think Logan Paul will fight next? Let us know in the comments section below.
“We had fun with Logan when he visited,” Roach explained.
“He seems like a good guy.”
“After watching Manny work out, he said he was glad he fought Floyd instead of Manny. We liked hearing that!
“I thought Logan did well against Floyd.”
Pacquiao was expected to return to the boxing ring later this month against the outstanding Errol Spence Jr.
However, just a few weeks out from the bout, it was reported that Spence Jr had withdrawn from the fight after suffering a retinal tear in his left eye.
The injury is the latest setback for Spence Jr, who was involved in a shocking single-vehicle car accident in 2019 that left him in intensive care.
Shockingly, he suffered no broken bones but was charged for driving under the influence and placed on probation.
After his latest injury was announced, Spence eluded to his impressive recovery following the accident and told fans, “I came back from worse.”
