Floyd Mayweather claims there would have been 'blood from the beginning' if Logan Paul exhibition was 'a real fight'

FLOYD MAYWEATHER claimed there would have been 'blood from the beginning' if his exhibition with Logan Paul was 'a real fight'.

Mayweather, 44, officially retired in 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 33, in a lucrative crossover bout.

But he has returned twice, both in exhibitions, starting with a one round demolition job over featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23.

More recently, in June he was taken the distance over eight rounds by YouTuber Paul, 26, who weighed TWO STONE more.

Despite boasting of a $100million payday, Mayweather is adamant it was his last cameo in the ring and was never the ring thing in the first place.

He said: “I won't go back to boxing, no I won't.

"Boxing was very good to me, because I could make smart investments on the outside, but now I want to help others to become champions like Gervonta Davis.

“Terence Crawford, Errol Spence, [David] Benavidez, the list goes on. There are many very tough fighters out there, great young champions that I am proud of.

"I don't miss boxing, I just go and have fun, that's why I did an exhibition with Logan Paul, we had fun, I had fun.

"We gave people a bit of fun and people have to know that there is a difference between a real fight and an exhibition.

"With an exhibition I was only training from time to time. If it was a real fight there would have been blood from the beginning.

“I had the opportunity to fight 16 world champions in a row, I was in unification fights, I did a lot of things in boxing.

"I couldn't do everything, but I'm happy for the fighters who are undisputed champions."
