The “fight” between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather Jr. represents a trend reminiscent of the demise of professional boxing. Boxing, also known as “Sweet Science”, is a very proud and traditional sport. But like any other sport, it is forced to strike a balance between serious competition and recreation.

The audience wants to see a view. They are willing to spend a lot of money for this. Not only must you win a champion ring, you must also be an entertainer. Android Mayweather Jr. has completed both. 50 battles, 50 victories – that is the record of a legendary fighter.

Mayweather’s sporting legacy is undefeated in front of big opponents such as Manny Pacquiao, Oscar de la Hoya and Saul Alvarez. At the age of 44, Mayweather is now back in the ring to take part in a “show fight” with a very young boxing novice who weighed 15 kilograms and became famous through YouTube clips.
