Former Shannon Briggs has added his voice on the upcoming Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather fight. According to Shannon Briggs, the fight doesn’t look good for Floyd as he is convinced beyond doubts that Briggs is carrying the night.
Briggs in an interview with FightHype.com stated that Logan Paul tends to perform better against finessed strikers. Taking into account Paul’s physical attributes, Briggs believes Paul is a bad matchup for Floyd Mayweather.
“I’m giving [Logan Paul] a strong chance of winning this thing. I’m telling you right now. I have trained the kid. He is strong. I’m telling you he fights dudes that could fight better, better. I don’t like this fight for Floyd. I’m keeping it real with you.”
Logan Paul was last seen inside the squared circle in 2019. The 26-year-old trained under the tutelage of Shannon Briggs to fight fellow YouTube sensation KSI in a rematch. Paul went toe-to-toe with KSI but fell short in claiming the decision victory.
Reflecting on Logan Paul’s loss to KSI, Briggs said the former Vine star was a novice striker back in 2019. KSI’s unorthodox approach to boxing evidently threw Logan Paul off, per Briggs.
“Yeah, but [KSI] fought wild. He fought crazy. That threw him [Logan Paul] off. When a dude knows how to fight, he fights better with the dudes who fight like that. I was like that. There’s a lot of dudes like that. KSI is unorthodox. I don’t like this fight for Floyd, I’m keeping it real.”
Briggs coached Paul for his bout with KSI in 2019.
