Fans Think Logan Paul Is Trolling Floyd Mayweather With Punchbag Video

The thicccest heavy bag I've ever seen in my life. What a bizarre day.- Danny Segura (@dannyseguratv) June 3, 2021

Paul was showing off his 'skills' in a training video while working the heavy punchbag, but was being really very slow and deliberate in his actions, leading his fans to suggest this could be a pre-fight dig at Mayweather.
You see, Floyd was seen working a bag the other week, and showing off some of his famous skill and punching prowess.
Whereas Paul decided to slowly hit the bag, appearing lethargic and - quite frankly - looking like someone who is going to get absolutely mullered when the pair square off this weekend.
To be fair, knowing Paul, it's definitely a distinct possibility this is all a big joke.
After viewing the open training session, which was filmed at Florida's Fifth Street Gym, one fan wrote: "Is this a joke? lol."
It may well be, yes.
Another said: "Did he get worse? lmao."
A third wrote: "Logan had a good first half of the round but bag completely took over by the end. 10-8 bag."
Mayweather enters the fight on 6 June as the heavy favourite, despite giving up a significant amount of weight to Paul.
Of course, weight isn't everything in the boxing ring, and 'Money' Mayweather's record speaks for itself.
The 44-year-old has a professional record of 50 fights without defeat, and has fought some of the best across the course of his remarkable career.
He has beaten the likes of Ricky Hatton, Canelo Alvarez, and Manny Pacquiao, and can quite rightly be considered as part of the 'greatest of all time' conversation.
Logan Paul has a professional record of one fight, a defeat, and that came against fellow YouTuber KSI.
It's not exactly inspiring.
However, Paul believes that he stands a chance. After all, he has to.
You wouldn't get into the ring with a dangerous athlete unless you thought you had a chance of at least getting a couple of shots in.
In a slightly tongue-in-cheek statement, Paul said he'd knock Mayweather out, then retire as the best boxer in the world.
He said: "I'm going to knock him out and become the greatest boxer on the planet. Then I'm going to retire and not give Floyd the rematch... He doesn't know who he's getting in the ring with.
"He really thinks I'm a YouTuber. He really thinks I'm a fake fighter. I get it. Everything that I've portrayed online says the same thing, but we're really about this life now.
"Floyd underestimating me is going to hurt him."
We'll just have to see what happens on 6 June when all the talking stops.
