As the YouTuber prepares to ‘shock the world,’ Floyd Mayweather issued a three-part warning to Logan Paul.
This Saturday, the unbeaten legend will face the YouTube sensation in the ring.
Shannon Briggs, a former world heavyweight champion, believes Logan Paul will ‘shock the world’ against Floyd Mayweather. The highly awaited bout will take place at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on Sunday, June 6.
In their exhibition bout, Mayweather, who has a professional record of 50-0, is largely predicted to easily defeat the YouTube phenom.
Paul’s only other professional endeavor was a split decision loss to fellow YouTube megastar KSI in November 2019.
However, as he faces off against arguably the best in-ring technician boxing has ever seen, the 26-year-confidence old’s and predicted 30lbs size advantage has helped him draw major interest.
Shannon Briggs, Paul’s coach for his battle against KSI, has praised him ahead of the fight on Sunday.
Briggs believes Paul’s boxing abilities should not be overlooked, and predicted that the 26-year-old will face off against one of the sport’s biggest names.
“Logan, he’s a nice guy,” he said. He’ll astound the entire planet.
“Here’s what you should do: keep your eyes on this person. ‘You’re going to fight Floyd Mayweather one day,’ I told him after training him.
“When he looked at me, I told him, ‘One day, you’re going to face Floyd Mayweather.’
“For this to be occurring, I am telling you, I am telling you, I am telling you, I am telling you, I am telling you, I am telling you, I am telling you, I am telling you, I am telling you
“It’s occurring, and I’ve sensed his might before. He can hit, believe me. I’ll tell you what, the kid can hit.
“Take care. It’s possible that this isn’t what you think. “That kid can hit.”
Briggs went on to issue a three-part warning to Mayweather about the threats Paul is carrying into their battle.
“For what it’s worth, I’ll say this about this kid: he can punch,” Briggs explained.
“This kid is bigger and has some rapid punches, man. It’s Floyd Mayweather, but this kid is bigger and has some quick punches.
“He’s had more opportunities to improve and develop. He’s a small child, but he’s a large one.”
As he continues to taunt the five-weight world champion, Paul claims that June 6 will be the “worst day of his life.”
Many have questioned the unbeaten star’s motivation for taking on such a bout, and he’s attributed it to the large payoff he’ll receive as a result.
