Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul came face to face again as the pair’s controversial exhibition drew closer, with the boxing great insisting he could use his ‘Z game’ against the YouTuber.
Mayweather, 44, returns to the ring for the first time since New Year’s Eve 2018 to take on internet star Paul, who once competed professionally and suffered a defeat to fellow influencer KSI in November 2019.
The boxing icon, who has a record 50-0, is expected to handle the 26-year-old American with ease, despite the massive size difference shown when the pair faced off on Thursday.

And Mayweather claims he doesn’t have to be at his best to see Paul in the exhibition where there will be no winner or loser, although knockouts are allowed.
“I don’t have to use my A-game, my B-game, my C-game. I can use my Z game,” Mayweather said at the Miami event. “You don’t even have to hit him hard. The result will be the same.’
Paul and younger brother Jake, 24, have made strides in becoming boxers, with the latter recently beating retired UFC fighter Ben Askren and set to take on former champion Tyron Woodley this summer.

Paul has agreed to wear 10 ounce gloves for the event in which there will be no winner
Mayweather says he will expose Logan Paul’s limited net worth on Sunday, while he could meet Jake Paul in the future.
“I take my hat off to these guys,” Mayweather said. “They did a good job of fooling the public that they are real fighters. Man, you’ll find out on Sunday.’
The practice fight is scheduled for eight three-minute rounds with no judges and no official winner, although knockouts are allowed and the referee may intervene to wave the fight off in the event of a knockout.
The pair would wear 12-ounce gloves for the match, but both have agreed to wear smaller 10-ounce gloves instead.
