Logan Paul claims age caught up with Mayweather

Logan Paul felt that age caught up with Floyd Mayweather in their fight.

The YouTube star sensationally avoided being knocked out by the boxing icon during the eight-round exhibition and felt that he lacked speed in the ring.

Paul told reporters: "He’s a little slower than I expected. I imagine his age is finally kicking in a little bit. ‘Father Time,’ even a specimen like Floyd Mayweather, I imagine he could feel it a little bit. I saw some of his hooks [coming]. … He blessed me with this opportunity, and I’m happy about that. And I don’t wanna sit here after the fact and, you know, talk s***.

"But I think his age like finally came into play. Like, I could see it. You know, he was coming forward, he was putting the pressure on me. And then, he started breathing a little heavier in round five and six, stopped coming forward, you know? And I had a second wind."

However, Paul did praise Mayweather, 44, for his intelligence and skill in combat and felt that every mistake he made was punished by the former world champion.

The social media star said: "I mean, this goes without saying, but he’s definitely the most skilled fighter that I’ve ever went against.

"Any little error I made, he capitalized on. And, you know, I felt that immediately. It’s an honour. It’s an honour, but I can’t say, you know, I wasn’t prepared."
