Former world heavyweight champion George Foreman admitted that he liked Floyd Mayweather’s show fight against video blogger Logan Paul.

“The strangest thing is that I’m starting to enjoy these exhibition fights much more than the so-called competitive fights that they arrange, because the latter have no entertainment value. But exhibition fights do.

Mayweather turned into a slugger and chased an opponent. Paul is as tall as Wilt Chamberlain, he used the jab. It was fun. There is something exciting about this guy. I don’t know where this will go next, but I was thrilled. I, the Olympic gold medalist and two-time world heavyweight champion, could not tear myself away from the fight even for a second. I was afraid to get up and step away from the screen even for a minute.

It was an exciting evening for me. I didn’t expect this, believe me. Someone will say that he turned off the TV, but I did not leave him, because I thought that at any second Mayweather could knock him out. But then this guy started jumping, using a jab and dominating. He didn’t have the experience of Floyd, but he dominated because of size, ”George Foreman told USA TODAY.
