Logan Paul was able to escape a knockout and drag Floyd Mayweather to the final bell in their surreal showdown in Miami on Sunday night.
No official winner was announced, as per exhibition rules, but although a knockout was allowed it did not materialise.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul emerged with dignity from his bizarre clash against the all-time boxing great Mayweather, who retired with a perfect 50-0 record in 2017.
Mayweather, now 44, swung with hurtful intentions and landed his fair share but Paul was able to battle on.
The social media phenomenon, whose only previous boxing match was a loss to fellow YouTuber KSI, gained Mayweather’s respect by the end when they mutually embraced.
Mayweather was content and relaxed enough to coast through the first round until, at the end, Paul wildly flurried in an attempt to land a clean shot.
