Floyd Mayweather labelled a 'prostitute' for comeback fight against Logan Paul

“He’s prostituting himself and his legacy for a bag of money. He comes out of the fight game with an unbelievable record and we’re just sitting here and giving Floyd Mayweather money for nothing."

Floyd Mayweather has been accused of selling himself for money following his shambolic exhibition event against Logan Paul.

The former five-division world champion has not fought a professional fight since overcoming UFC dual-division titlist Conor McGregor in 2017.

In doing so, Mayweather overtook Rocky Marciano's undefeated 49-0 record.

Despite rumours of a rematch with Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather started off a new trend of exhibition fights, starting in 2018 with a farcical knockout of Tenshin Nasukawa in Tokyo.

Mike Tyson followed the trend by ending a 15-year hiatus from the ring to face Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round bout. Coincidentally, it ended as a draw.

Mayweather, who has no desire to return as a professional, was unable to deliver a knockout on Sunday night to defeat Paul - a YouTube sensation with more than 23 million subscribers.

The fight ended in a draw due to no judges being ringside to score the bout.

"TBE" will pick up a minimum of $50million while Paul will receive an estimated $20-25million for his participation in the freak-show.

"When the money comes, we'll see who the real winner is," Floyd Mayweather said after being jeered out of the ring by fans.

TalkSPORT's Simon Jordan held no punches when asked about Mayweather's cringe comeback.

"Don't you think the real problem is Gareth, is that Floyd Mayweather is a prostitute," the former Crystal Palace owner said.

"He's prostituting himself and his legacy for a bag of money. He comes out of the fight game with an unbelievable record and we're just sitting here and giving Floyd Mayweather money for nothing, really.

"It's Floyd Mayweather, that people take exception (to). Logan Paul is an opportunist and fair play to him - good luck to him, he's prepared to go in a ring for eight rounds with Floyd Mayweather and get his face punched off at times and pick up £20million.

"Good luck to him, to some extent. We all know what that is. But don't you expect just a little bit more from Floyd Mayweather?

"That's where I have my issue. He's earned fortunes and could do something more meaningful with his legacy and make money," Jordan added.
