Entertainment world. Oh, how do we love you. You make that even the richest athlete on the planet, now-retired to come back and fight against Paul, a 26-year-old Ohio native who now lives in a mansion in Puerto Rico to avoid paying taxes. Can he win or is it just a publicity stunt?
How a boxing legend would step out of retirement to fight against a YouTuber? Well, it's 2021 people, weird stuff is happening. Let's get better used to it before it's too late.
Floyd, who is now 43 years old last fought (and won) against celebrity UFC champion Conor McGregor. So why fighting someone almost as amateur as Paul? Numbers, basic numbers.
With his brother, Jake Paul, he has have built an online empire that includes a subscription VIP club, clothing, podcasts, music videos, movies and brand deals.
With 22,4 million subscribers he has one of the most successful YouTube channels in the world. Keemstar, another Internet star, leaked in October last year via Twitter the deal to one of the most important sports events in the world.
We are more than eager to see it happen. Not only for the sports itself, but for the surrounding show.
Joe Rogan, the famous UFC commentator/YouTuber/Podcast host, stated that despite this not being one of the events people would expect to be competitive, Logan could give a surprise.
The young Internet star is a former wrestler (and a very good one). He also trained the several years with a personal chef, trainer, meditation session, like a professional boxer would do.
Joe really believes in this kid:
"he is exhibiting real skill. He knows how to scramble, he’s got real wrestling skill."
Yes, he lost against KSI in England, but his wrestlings skills could give the young boy from Ohio a certain advantage. What do you guys think?
This is 2021, where sports athletes are fighting YouTubers, making millions and celebrating each one their own way. And the fans, who have something to talk about amid such a difficult year. Like I said, let's get better used to it before it's too late.
