Mayweather vs. Paul play-in tournament pool picks

Which the fighters touch gloves before the fight? Yes or no

Yes
No

This is a fake blood feud, but they’ll keep the myth going at least until the end of the fight.

Will the fight go the distance? Yes or no

Yes
No

Unpopular opinion alert, but Mayweather is being outweighed here by over 30 pounds. And the GOAT also isn’t a fighter known for his power, but rather his ability to not get hit.

Will there be a knockdown in the first four rounds? Yes or no

Yes
No

I think both guys stay on their feet and stay as safe as they can, especially early. The incentive to get to the end without any damage, especially because there will be no judges, is strong.

How many knockdowns will there be? Over or under 1.5

Over 1.5
Under 1.5

Does either boxer touch the ropes during the first round? Yes or no

Yes
No

Floyd might back up and “disappear” as he loves to do. Even if it’s just for show, this isn’t getting done in the center of the ring.

Who will be interviewed first after the fight? Floyd Mayweather or Logan Paul

Floyd Mayweather
Logan Paul

Despite all of Paul’s social media presence, most of the money here is going to Money May.

Will Logan Paul call out his next opponent during the post-fight interview? Yes or No/He is not Interviewed post-fight

Yes
No/Is not interviewed post-fight

Never miss a promotional opportunity.

Will say this is his last fight during the post-fight interview? Yes or No/He is not Interviewed post-fight

No/Is not interviewed post-fight
