"That was crazy for me," Paul said, before claiming a symbolic victory. "I knew if it went the distance, I won, technically."Mayweather landed more punches in the exhibition than Paul and clearly targeted the body. Seventeen of the 43 punches he landed were directed at the midsection, according to CompuBox data sent to Insider.
Paul said he was surprised at this strategy."He worked the body more than I was used to in sparring," he said, adding: "I said that to him. I was whispering in his ear. He hit me in the stomach, and I said, 'Bitch, I do sit-ups.'" At the press conference, the internet sensation told the media that he had kept a list of everyone who said Mayweather would embarrass him and that he'd now post it online. At the top of that list would be Mike Tyson.
"You're all f---ed," Paul said. "Mike Tyson is on it. I love Mike Tyson, but he's on it. He told me on my own podcast, 'Floyd is going to beat his f---ing ass.' That's what he said. Floyd didn't beat my f---ing ass, Mike."
On the intricacies of the match itself, Paul said: "Any little error I made, he capitalized on, and I felt that immediately. He was slower than I expected. I imagine his age is finally kicking in."Paul then ruled out fighting Jake Paul, his brother, next but conceded that one day they might end up competing purely for the spectacle of it.
"Fighting Jake Paul? I don't know, bro, we love each other, but we also love putting on big shows," Paul said. "Give us some time to acclimate to this sport.
"Because we did so well on YouTube and other verticals, people hold us to a top-tier standard, but we're just getting started."Let us get good at this sport, let us take over a little more. Keep putting on good shows, inspiring people, it's a good life."
