WHERE was the knockout Logan?
Loudmouth YouTube star Logan Paul couldn’t resist giving it large ahead of his clash with Floyd Mayweather here on Sunday night, telling anyone who listened that the mother of all shocks was set to be delivered.
But when it came down to the crunch, a bloke with two previous fights to his name was easily picked off by a five weight former world champion who many believe is the greatest of all time.
What a surprise. Yes, Paul gave it his all and at least he managed to last the full eight rounds.
He had some small successes and took some hefty blows.
But anyone who thought this absolute chancer was ready to send the legendary American tumbling to a first ever defeat needs their head testing.
Moneyman Mayweather was far too good for his rookie opponent and even though there were no judges ringside for this exhibition contest, the American legend was a clear winner.
Mayweather said: "I wanted to give people a show and he was fighting to survive, he was the bigger guy but his background was wrestling so was good at tying me up.
“This was like a training session really. Just going the distance was a win for him. He can grapple and was good at holding.
"When a guy that size is holding you, it’s hard to get him off you. I had fun, he did too. It was cool.

“I was training a few days a week, so for me to be retired, be a grandfather and fight a guy in his 20’s, when the money comes, we will see who the winner is. “
Paul did well to go the distance and proved he's brave if nothing else but there wasn’t a hope in hell of seeing Mayweather lose.
His defence and lethal counter-attacking quality was simply too hot to handle for the 26 year-old who should stick to boosting his social media following rather than trying to stun the sporting world.
Mayweather added: "I am going into the Hall of Fame, I have nothing to prove.
"If they are happy with grappling and holding for eight rounds, that’s good for them.
"I hope the fans were pleased. I have been in this sport for so long, I was letting people see I can come out at the age of 44 and bring 30,000 to the stadium and bring good pay-per-view numbers.
“I am not going to perform like I was 19, it’s all about growth and aging.
"I can’t fight like when I fought people like Gatti and people like that. It’s sad Pacquiao is coming out to fight again.
“I could have pressed really hard but it was fun. His whole goal was to survive and that was a win for him. If he’s happy, so be it. In the history books I will always be the greatest.
“Will I make a comeback? Absolutely not. I have retired from the sport of boxing. I probably won’t do an exhibition again either.
“If he would have fought more, it wouldn’t have lasted eight rounds. I am just blessed to build a legacy and build a fortune from it.
"I have made some smart investments and everything is paid for. But we did what we had to do tonight. “
