FLOYD MAYWEATHER would still beat Logan Paul if he was ‘100 years old’, according to legendary boxing promoter Bob Arum.
It has been reported that Mayweather is in talks for an exhibition fight against YouTuber Paul.
And while inevitably there would be millions on offer to the pair, the prospect of seeing one of boxing’s best ever fight a social media star has been blasted by many.
This includes Arum, who is Tyson Fury’s US promoter.
Speaking to iFL TV, the 88-year-old was scathing about the prospect of the two lacing up gloves to fight.
Arum said: “Anybody who would pay five cents to watch that fight has to have his head examined.
“Floyd Mayweather, probably if he was 100 years old, it would still be a fairly confident fight.”
Another big name to have recently slammed the fight happening is fellow YouTuber KSI.
And that’s because the Brit thinks Mayweather should fight him instead.
KSI has twice fought Paul, drawing in their first meeting, before beating him last year when the pair turned professional.
And KSI has stated it makes no sense for five-weight world champion Mayweather to return to the ring to face Paul.
He insisted that it would make more sense for the 1996 Olympic bronze medallist to face him instead.
Speaking on his second YouTube channel, KSI said: “This ain’t happening.
“Why the f*** would Mayweather say yes to this? Why would he fight the loser of me and Logan?
“I was A-side for both fights, surely Mayweather would just wanna fight the winner of me vs Logan, it just makes more sense.”
But one former boxing two-weight world champion would be happy to see Mayweather and Paul going toe-to-toe.
David Haye told Sky Sports the 39-year-old said: “I just think it’s fun, it gets people talking. I don’t mind seeing Floyd Mayweather fight YouTubers.
“I wouldn’t want to see Mayweather fighting someone young, undefeated. Why? What’s the point?
“They are younger and fresher, and Mayweather may have slowed down a fraction. He may lose.
“I don’t mind Mayweather fighting, as long as it isn’t against someone who has a chance of winning.”
Mayweather retired from the noble art undefeated in 50 fights, his last victory coming against UFC legend Conor McGregor in 2017.
