Floyd Mayweather’s fight with Logan Paul might not have any judges or even an official winner called if it goes the distance but that doesn’t mean it won’t cost a packet to watch it live.
To witness the boxing legend go up against the novice YouTuber in prime floor seats at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium will set you back $US28,500 according to the online resale market StubHub. The cheapest seats are going for $134 but you might as well be in another country.
There were no surprises at the weigh in with both men making weight, although Paul just scraped 0.5 pounds under the 190 pound limit (86kgs). He would have been docked $100,000 per pound if he was over weight. Mayweather weighed in at 155 pounds (70kgs).
“I’ve been here before, I know what it takes, I’ve fought every different style you could possibly fight,” Mayweather said.
“Weight don’t win fights, fighting wins fights … at the end of the day and I can fight.
“One thing I can do I can fight. I’ve been at the top level for 25 years so I know what it takes.”
Paul, who has one professional fight to his name, had this to say at the weigh in:
“He’s not ready, he don’t know what to expect,” declared Paul.
“And this is not the biggest fight of my life, this is the biggest fight of his life because he’s got a lot on the line, everything to lose. I’m going to have fun.”
“The fact I am even up here proves this is a simulation, none of it is real, the aliens are coming in June … just be ready … tomorrow I bring the simulation and beat the greatest boxer in the history of planet.”
