Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul likened to Kim Kardashian vs Amanda Nunes as Dana White says ‘that’s not f***ing boxing’

FLOYD MAYWEATHER' exhibition fight against YouTuber Logan Paul has been likened to Kim Kardashian taking on Amanda Nunes.

In the early hours of Monday morning the two larger-than-life US celebs boxed eight rounds, going the distance many predicted it wouldn't.


Mayweather likened the scrap to sparring, while Paul was elated he had just survived against one of the best boxers ever.

But UFC chief Dana White, despite being good friends with Mayweather, was not impressed.

Speaking to UFC Arabia, he said: "That wasn’t a f***ing boxing match. Like I said before, there’s always going to be a market for that kind of stuff.

"There’s always going to be people that are willing to put down $50 to watch that kind of stuff. That’s so far away [from what we do].

“Think about this — imagine if Kim Kardashian wanted to fight Amanda Nunes. How big do you think that fight would be? It would be huge.

"It would be the biggest [event] but give me a f***ing break."

Nunes is a two-weight UFC champ, while Kardashian is best know for being Kanye West's estranged wife as well as a reality TV star.

White's comments follow huge criticism of the 'fight' from fans.

The bout was blasted ‘the worst fight of all time’ and ‘battle of the cuddles’ on social media.

Paul's safety first tactics saw him avoid the KO defeat many predicted, though fans were left fuming.

One said: "I really just watched a 8 round hugging match for 30 mins."

Another said: "They robbed everyone in the arena and on PPV. Worst fight ever."

One, posting a video of Mayweather promising a KO, posted: "Battle Of The Cuddles."

Mayweather, 44, officially hung up the gloves in 2017 after beating ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, 32, in ten rounds.

He did return a year on to beat featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a similar exhibition to the one with Paul in Miami.
