MAYWEATHER TOO MUCH FOR PAUL

Miami, Florida – Boxing Icon Floyd Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) outclassed, but couldn’t stop YouTuber Logan Paul (0-1) in an eight round exhibition bout on Sunday night Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. Mayweather carried Paul for the first two rounds. Floyd started to connect in round three. After that, Mayweather stalked and punished Paul, who showed a decent jaw and survived the full eight. The crowd was booing at the end.

Post Fight Interviews:

FLOYD MAYWEATHER

“He was strong, tough and better than I thought he was. I was surprised by him tonight. That was some good little work. 

“Even without much experience, he knew to use his weight to tie me up tonight. 

“I had fun tonight. I thank all the fans who came out, you’re all unbelievable.”

LOGAN PAUL

“I don’t want anyone to tell me anything is impossible ever again. The fact that I got in here with one of the greatest boxers of all time, it proves the odds can be beat. Anyone can beat the odds and do great things in life. This is one of the greatest nights of my life, I’m happy.

“It’s an honor to share the ring with Floyd. He’s one of the GOATs. This is one of the coolest things ever.”

Colina was deducted a point for holding in both rounds two and three. Jack then dropped Colina three times in round four to end it. Time was 2:57. Jack was originally slated to challenge WBA light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal, but Pascal tested positive for three banned substances and was removed from the card.

Post Fight Interviews:

Badou Jack

On the Jean Pacal rematch falling out…

“People can say it’s bad luck but this is all from God. And I just have to be patient. This is God’s plan.

“The game plan was just to outbox him. Everything else will come. Definitely, hit the body. He was a little soft in the body but give him respect. He came out on short notice. He was supposed to fight next week but this is a different level.

“My goal is to become a three-division world champion. I walk around very heavy. I’m about to be 38 this year and I don’t like to cut weight so I’ll get with my team and see what’s next.

“He was trying to hold a lot and survive. I fight better when I fight better opponents. I was a little sloppy. The world class fights are when I perform the best.”

ARIAS BEATS HURD

Miami, Florida – In a middleweight bout, Luis Arias (19-2-1, 9 KOs) won an upset ten round split decision over former unified super welterweight champion “Swift” Jarrett Hurd (24-2, 16 KOs). Arias was cut on forehead by a Hurd right hand in round two, but he outworked Hurd for most the fight. Arias down in round nine, but replays showed he slipped on the wet canvas. Arias had Hurd holding on in the last round. Scores referee Chris Young | John Rupert 94-95 | Mark Streisand 97-93 | Toby Tamarkin 96-93.

Post fight Interviews:

Luis Arias

“I came in here and challenged the No. 1 guy at 154 pounds and we fought somewhere halfway and I was able to edge a decision. Props to Jarrett Hurd. You fought a great fight. Honestly, you could have had me out of there. I was definitely buzzed. If you would have found a way, I definitely would have gone down.

“He is a great fighter and like I told him afterwards, he came in here and fought his heart out. He definitely should have taken more time off with what he was dealing with outside of the ring.

“We’re here. I never quit on myself. People close to me were telling me to get a job and quit boxing. I just beat a former champion. Don’t ever give up on yourself.

“I would like to thank Ismael Salas as well. I came to him semi-late. About six or seven weeks and I needed to change something in my game plan to beat Jarrett. The things I was doing before would have gotten me a loss tonight. I needed somebody to just tweak a little bit and put my game up a little bit so I could beat this champion. Jarrett is a hell of a fighter and he’s not done.

“My key to victory was staying confident. Staying confident and sticking to the game plan. Knowing I’m the better fighter. Knowing I’m in better shape and I hit harder. I’m a better boxer and my defense is better. I’m better than him and I just proved it.

“The game plan was to jump on him, get the early lead and keep it. I felt like in the middle rounds I was wining the fight but you never know because I wasn’t the A-side in this fight. I buzzed him a lot especially on the inside. If we were fighting at 154, he would have gotten knocked out. Everybody knows it.

“I’ve been around the Charlos. They are great champions. I’m not going to sit here and call out [Jermell] Charlo. I have to earn my stripes. Had I beat Hurd at 154, maybe I could mention him. But I can’t. The goal is to go down to 154 pounds and fight a former challenger.”

Jarrett Hurd

“I’m not sure what went wrong tonight. I believe I won the fight. I had a knockdown. I could make a hundred excuses but it wasn’t a great performance.

“The plan coming out in the first round was to box. I wasn’t as confident in my feet as the rain came down, so I had to go toe-to-toe more. That wasn’t really what we trained for, so I was a bit sloppy.

“I’ll take the rematch at whatever weight. I know I’m the better man.”
