After making it the distance against Floyd Mayweather, Logan Paul accused the five-division world champion of some cheap in-ring antics. While Paul and Mayweather had several close collisions in the ring, the referee had to slide in and separate both men frequently.
‘The Maverick’ also blamed the referee for over-looking one such instance where he accused Mayweather of disrupting his breathing. He addressed the issue on his IMPAULSIVE podcast and shocked several fans with his bombarding statements.
“Yeah, I was hugging him, or no, I was down by his hip once, and bro, I feel his glove coming around my face. On the far side of the referee, mother***ker covers my mouth. Bro, he covers my mouth, he opens his gloves and covers my mouth, and in my mind, I am like (awkward noises),” said the 26-year-old.
Paul has also touted his performance as a win over Floyd Mayweather. His younger brother Jake Paul expressed similar views. On social media, they even claimed that Mayweather’s current resume was 50-1, thereby vexing several traditional fans.
On a personal note for Paul, the fact that he did not go down against ‘TBE’ and earned a huge payday made it a win for him.
