Floyd Mayweather, Logan Paul exhibition match was 'f---ing horrendous' says top boxing promoter

The Floyd Mayweather-Logan Paul exhibition match at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida received a ton of backlash and drew different reactions from many fans tuning into the pay-per-view event.

One boxing promoter wasn’t a fan of the fight at all.

Eddie Hearn said fights like the one millions of people witnessed last Sunday night are only hurting the sport. He told iFL TV, an online boxing channel, in an interview that it was “absolutely f—ing horrendous.”

“I’m allowed to give my opinion. It was absolute dog s–t,” Hearn added.

Hearn, who runs Matchroom Boxing and represents some of the sports’ biggest names including Gennady Golovkin, Anthony Joshua, and Devin Haney, added that he doesn’t blame Mayweather for taking advantage of the opportunity to make a lot of money, but he thinks this isn’t the right way to attract new fans to the sport.

“If we don’t make good fights, you’re going to see more and more of this,” Hearn added. “We have to save boxing… No more s–t fights for great money.”
