Lately, there has been more and more talk about "new" boxers and most real boxing fans are amazed because of arranging such matches. Currently, the focus is on Paul Logan, a youtube star who will fight Floyd Mayweather.
Most people are bothered by such things and they thought that these things should not come. So much so that the currently most successful active boxer in the world, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, also expressed his opinion on this.
He was annoyed that a match had been arranged between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather, as he felt that such matches created the wrong picture of boxing in the world. "I think this is a lack of respect for all real fighters.
It's all about money. But I'd like to invite the guys to sparring to show them how things really are," Canelo told TMZ a few days ago.
Paul Logan answered
A statement like this seems to have offended Paul Logan who is preparing for the match against the former champion, who is about twenty kilograms lighter.
He said that his brother and he spend a lot of time in the gym and that they took boxing seriously. Then he turned to Canel. "Unless I'm wrong, he's fallen on steroids twice. Speaking of disrespect for boxing, we're talking about a guy who doesn't play by the rules.
It's amazing to me that he says we don't respect sports, and to me, it's just disrespecting when that something comes from a guy like him, a guy who showed disrespect for the whole ethics of the sport." "I think he's just jealous that I got a chance to do something he failed to do, beat Mayweather.
There's no reason to spit on us just because we want to do a good show and we’re working hard on that, ”Paul told the Night Shift Gaming stream. Interestingly, there is a possibility that the Mayweather-Paul match will take place the same evening as Canel’s next appearance.
Namely, both matches are planned for February, but the dates have not yet been fully confirmed. It seems that the goal of this match is to take as much money as possible because they are both aware that the match will be watched all over the world.
Yet the question is whether things like this will affect the reputation of Mayweather who has achieved enough to never have to fight again.
