While Paul’s brother Jake called out Conor McGregor after beating Nate Robinson, it was Logan that was able to get a callback from another professional fighter.
Floyd Mayweather wasn’t the favorite on the boxing oddsboard for Jake Paul’s next fight, the list favored celebrities, athletes, and other fighters listed from +150 all the way up.
As for Mayweather, his +6000 odds seemed like a massive longshot that would never hit. While Jake Paul will likely fight Dillon Danis (+150) or KSI (+180) – his two favorites – it will be Logan that gets his fight with Mayweather.
One could assume Mayweather will be quite the sizeable favorite with his boxing experience. However, as this bout is being labeled as a “super exhibition” match, the rules for the bout will play a vital role in the overall odds, though they will lean in favor of Mayweather.
In fact, Mayweather is a substantial favorite over UFC champions in Khabib Nurmagomedov (-1000) and Jorge Masvidal (-1000) at BetOnline, indicating that anything less than -1000 odds is a steal for Mayweather.
