Floyd Mayweather says “he had fun” exchanging blows with Logan Paul during their eight-round exhibition match Sunday.”

I had fun … He’s better than I thought he was,” Mayweather said after the fight Sunday, saying Paul knew how to use his weight to his advantage. “He’s a tough, rough competitor … I was surprised by him tonight.”

The pay-per-view event, which was broadcast on Showtime Sunday from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, was deemed a draw.

The highly anticipated sporting event didn’t go without technical difficulties. Some people said they had trouble streaming the highly publicized fight.

“We are aware that some customers have been having trouble accessing tonight’s Pay Per View event on SHOWTIME.com,” a spokesperson for Showtime told CNN in an email statement on Sunday evening during the event. “We are working diligently to resolve the issue and will redress customers appropriately.”

This wasn’t Paul’s first time in the ring. He twice fought vlogger and rapper Olajide “KSI” Olatunji, with the first bout ending in a draw and a second with KSI’s victory.

Mayweather, who was undefeated in his career with a 50-0 record, is considered one of boxing’s all-time greats.

In April, Jake Paul defeated former MMA fighter Ben Askren with a first-round TKO. He also knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson in November 2020.
