How Logan Paul can beat Mayweather – The foolproof strategy Logan Paul can use to beat Floyd Mayweather in their boxing match .
Can Logan Paul beat Mayweather?
You read that right. The answer to your question is yes.
Before you scroll down to the comments to express your disagreement (and I encourage you to share your views on this), just hear me out.
The cardinal rule of fighting – Invincibility is a myth
Firstly, let’s get this one out the way. One of the basic tenets of fighting is that anything can happen in a fight. If history has taught us anything, it’s that even the greatest warriors can be defeated. We’re human, after all. No human is invincible.
Logan Paul, as inexperienced as he is as compared to Mayweather, can still catch him with that miracle punch. Remember when 45-year-old George Foreman knocked out 26-year-old Michael Moorer? Now I’m not comparing Logan Paul to Big George; I am merely stating that one punch can turn an entire fight on its head. Logan Paul could land what some people (not me) in the combat sports world call a ‘lucky punch’ and knock Mayweather out cold.
Why? Well, I now hark back to the cardinal rule of fighting – No one’s invincible. Anyone can be beaten.
How can Logan Paul fight Mayweather
Now let’s get into the strategy, shall we? No strategy is foolproof. But we, as martial artists, as fighters, go into every fight with the mindset of an optimist. Like MMA icon and UFC legend Nate Diaz says – “Kill or be killed”.
I’ve broken down the strategy into 4 points noted below.
Logan Paul has to go Zen and steer clear of Floyd Mayweather’s mental warfare
Logan Paul has to approach the fight with a strong mindset. Zen mode is the need of the hour for Paul. The boxing legend is a master on the microphone and could destroy Logan Paul mentally before they even step into the ring.
However, by zoning Mayweather out and adopting the Zen mentality of not caring about anything that Mayweather says, Logan Paul can bring about a stalemate in the mental warfare aspect of their highly-awaited exhibition boxing match.
Logan Paul has to use Dirty Boxing – Clinching, rabbit punches, punches on the break, etc.
Floyd Mayweather knows how to deal with dirty boxing tactics. Don’t be misled by the term ‘dirty boxing’, for dirty boxing was, is, and will always remain an integral part of the sport of boxing. And Mayweather isn’t unbeknownst to this. He’s dealt with dirty boxing from the likes of Marcos Maidana and emerged victoriously.
But what makes the Logan Paul fight different is the incredible size difference between Paul and Mayweather. Not only is Paul about half a foot taller than Mayweather, but he also has a four-inch reach advantage on the latter. Additionally, Paul weighed in at 199.4 pounds for his last fight, whereas Floyd Mayweather weighed in at 149.5 pounds for his previous professional boxing match against Conor McGregor back in August 2017.
