Logan Paul explains what he ‘whispered’ to Floyd Mayweather during fight

Logan Paul has admitted that he received more stomach punches from Floyd Mayweather than he had prepared for in training for the bout – but wasn't worried because he does sit ups.

The YouTuber turned professional boxer was in jubilant mood following the eight rounds against his experienced foe, with the absence of judges meaning there was no winner.

While Ricky Hatton has been one of many criticising voices over the match-up, Mayweather has since scrapped his plans to take part in more exhibition bouts down the line.

While much of their fight was hampered by clinches, Logan got a laugh out of the press during his media conference by detailing what he said during the close encounters.

Paul said after the bout: "No I never got hurt, he worked the body more than I was used to in sparring."

Adding: "I was whispering in his ear. He hit me in the stomach and I said: 'b**** I do sit ups'."

The 26-year-old went on to detail his desire to get into MMA after his latest adventure, and he detailed how his wrestling background makes that a potential next step.

"This is one of the greatest moments of my life… damn, I'm happy,' Paul had said in the ring.

"You never know with this guy, I'm going to go home thinking, "Yo, did Floyd let me survive?"

"He's one of the GOATs, and in many ways he controls this sport to the tee, that's what makes him great. It's an honour to grace the ring with him.

"It's an honour to grace the ring with him. Man, this is the coolest thing ever… I'm happy I made it out. He's old, but he's tough to hit."

Floyd said: "A guy that's retired, training a few days a week, for me to be retired, be a grandfather and fight a guy in his 20's. When the money comes, we will see who the winner is."

He added: "Will I make a comeback? Absolutely not. I have retired from the sport of boxing. I probably won't do an exhibition again either.

"If he would have fought more, it wouldn't have lasted eight rounds. I am just blessed to build a legacy and build a fortune from it. I have made some smart investments and everything is paid for.

"We did what we had to do tonight."
