Floyd Mayweather had a 'reality check' and his 'pride dented' vs Logan Paul and WON'T fight brother Jake, says Nelson

JOHNNY NELSON said Floyd Mayweather had a 'reality check' and his 'pride dented' against Logan Paul and will NOT fight the brother Jake.

Mayweather failed to knock out YouTuber Logan after eight exhibition rounds in Miami.


Nelson said it is a sign the boxing legend should hang up the gloves for good having been unable to stop his much larger yet inexperienced opponent.

And he reckons Mayweather will avoid a fight with Logan's younger brother Jake, who is 3-0 all by knockout in his own career.

Nelson, 54, said on Sky Box Office: "I don't think Floyd would.

"I think he's had a reality check today, saying, 'You know what, I've rinsed this as much as I can'

"I think probably his pride's been dented a little bit by not getting rid of him.

"Once it's gone it's gone you can't turn back time when it comes to age and unfortunately he'd loved to be able to.

"I'm quite sure he'd love to be able to close the show tonight but he just couldn't close it how he wanted to."

Before Mayweather's exhibition with Logan, 26, Jake, 24, put himself in line for a shot at the American great after stealing his hat at a press conference.

And the unbeaten icon, 44, admitted just days before returning to the ring that Jake was 'probably' going to be his next opponent.

He had plans to box in Japan this year and also called out rap rival 50 Cent as well as the Paul brothers earlier in the year.

But after marking his comeback without a showstopping finish, Mayweather appeared to pour cold water on ever fighting again.

He said: "As far as me coming back in the sport of boxing, absolutely not.

"As far as me doing an exhibition again probably not."
