Logan Paul was the winner against Floyd Mayweather, says Eddie Hearn

The YouTube celebrity avoided a knockout blow.

Logan Paul was the ‘winner’ in his fight with Floyd Mayweather, claims Eddie Hearn.

Mayweather and Paul contested eight rounds last Sunday and the YouTube celebrity was able to avoid a knockout, which many had expected.

After the fight, Mayweather said he was ‘surprised’ by the fight offered by Paul.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Hearn suggested Mayweather had damaged his legacy.

"There wasn't even a decision, it was so bizarre," Hearn said. 

"But yeah, if there was a winner from the fight, it was Logan Paul, because I actually think it was bad for Floyd Mayweather.

"Any new-age fan, his legacy is already built, but anyone watching that would actually think that Floyd Mayweather wasn't very good, and he is one of the greatest fighters of all time.

"I think, even by his own admission in the press conference after, he was semi-embarrassed to say, 'Don't think I'll do any of those as well'."

Hearn continued: "If we don't deliver the right fights. If fighters and managers and promoters don't take the right fights, the broadcasters will demand a product that drives numbers.

"That drove numbers, that drove interest, so the boxing people now need to stand up and say, 'Let's make great fights, because if we don't keep the boxing product strong, you'll see more of that coming through'."
