The Planet Sport Boxing Show: Floyd Mayweather is the real winner

Mark Smith and Joe Hewlett digest Mayweather vs Paul, Matchroom Boxing's historic deal and Daniel Dubois' return to the ring.

Another week, another seven days of chaos in the boxing world.
Floyd Mayweather returned to our screens on Sunday and took on Logan Paul in an eight-round exhibition.

The former five-division world champion was taken the distance by Paul, a YouTube superstar, meaning the outcome of the fight was a draw with no judges on hand to score it.

Mayweather mocked the contest as a bank robbery with the American expected to pocket a minimum of $50million for the fight.

The question is, will a 44-year-old Mayweather return to face Jake Paul - Logan's younger brother - or will he finally leave the squared circle for good?

End of an era

Elsewhere, Eddie Hearn revealed Matchroom Boxing will leave Sky Sports this month and move over to streaming service app DAZN.

The promoter, who has been working for the company in North America since 2018, will work on the platform for the next five years, producing 16 UK shows a year, including fights from the likes of Josh Warrington and Conor Benn.

Anthony Joshua is yet to commit himself to DAZN, with one fight left on his deal with Sky Sports.

Dominant Dubois

It was a triumphant return for Daniel Dubois, who knocked out Bogdan Dinu inside two rounds under new trainer Shane McGuigan.
Dubois was fighting for the first time since his heavy defeat to Olympian Joe Joyce.

The British heavyweight won the WBA interim heavyweight title in the process, and is the organisation's fifth champion in the division with Joshua, Trevor Bryan, Mahmoud Charr and Robert Helenius all holding a version of a major title.
