People are mocking Logan Paul for constantly hugging Floyd Mayweather Jr. during their fight tonight.
The pair went toe-to-toe for their long-awaited exhibition bout in Miami, with the fight going the full eight rounds.

One viewer joked: "I wish I had a gf that would hug me as much as Logan's been hugging Mayweather tonight."

Another quipped: "Logan Paul got more hugs in 8 rounds than I have this whole year."
"I just want someone to hug me like Logan Paul hugged Floyd Mayweather," said a third.
While another added: "I wished my father hugged my like Floyd and Logan hug each other."
Following their fight, Mayweather, 44, took the opportunity to praise Paul, 26, for his efforts, saying he was 'better' than he thought.
In return, Paul thanked Money for giving him the opportunity, saying it was an 'honour' to step in the ring with the legend, and 'happy I made it out'.
Paul came into the ring much heavier, tipping the scales at 189.5lbs at the weigh-in last week, while Mayweather was more than 30lbs lighter.
Speaking ahead of the fight, Paul said he felt that he would be able to match the former world champion.
He said: "There's a moment that goes through every fighter's mind. Everyone we spar, everyone Jake's beat.
"When we hit them, they realise, 'Oh, he might not just do YouTube. This guy really put his heart and soul in this.'
"I hit hard. I think you're going to see Floyd's eyes light up, the first time I hit him."
