Ray Flores: "It is a privilege to step across the ring from Floyd"

Ray Flores: “It is a privilege to step across the ring from Floyd”

It appears as though the world, or at least sports world, is getting back to normal. We see fans in attendance of UFC events. We see White Sox fans starting fist fights with each other. We are getting back to normal and as we approach perhaps one of the more bizarre combat sports events of the year, I spoke with boxing analyst Ray Flores to discuss the highly anticipated fight between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul. Flores has been reporting on Mayweather fights for more than five years, including the smash event between him and Conor McGregor. So while a lot of the world is still questioning why this bout exists, Flores stepped in to clear the air and give his personal opinion.

It should go without saying that most of the sports betting world has Mayweather as the heavy favorite. That hasn’t stopped Paul from talking about his game plan and how he sees his odds. So when I posed the idea to Flores about Paul possibly pulling an upset, Flores wasn’t having any of it.

“Floyd Mayweather is one of the greatest fighters of all time,” Flores stated.

“Are you kidding me? Floyd Mayweather is still Floyd Mayweather at 44 years of age,” he continued.

Not only did Flores see this as an easy payday for Mayweather, but he discussed just how bad this could get for Paul. Obviously, Mayweather stands at a perfect 50-0 professional record. In fact, you have to go back a quarter century for his last loss as an amateur. Compound that with Paul only having one professional fight, and a limited boxing background, this night could end early. Flores continued to talk about how difficult a task Paul has in front of him.

“Logan Paul is a young guy,” Flores declared.

“He’s big, he’s strong, but that doesn’t equate to ring IQ. This guy never had an amateur background in boxing … What Floyd could potentially do to Logan Paul, if Floyd wants to step on the gas, it could get ugly in that ring on Sunday night,” he finished.

Of course, nothing is a foregone conclusion quite yet and Paul always has a puncher’s chance. It is no secret that both Paul brothers have worked with Ryan Garcia. So Logan Paul should have some idea of what to expect from Mayweather.

“Keep your hands up,” Flores insisted.

“Move your head and never keep your feet stationary. Move, move, move and try to physically impose your physical will upon Floyd Mayweather. but that is easier said than done,” Flores finished.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul goes down Sunday June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
