Logan Paul says he’s ‘not too bad’ after surviving eight rounds with Floyd Mayweather in their exhibition fight on Sunday.

Though Mayweather dominated the bout, Paul indicated he had not come off worse for wear.

The social media star, who lost his only professional fight to KSI in 2019, shared a picture of him sporting minor bruises around his eyes and one at the top of his chest alongside the caption: ‘not too bad’.

Rules stated there could be no official winner but that there could be a knockout, determined by the referee. 

The fight went the distance but both boxers have been criticised by fans, who paid up £17 each to watch the fight in the UK and about $50 to watch in the US.

Some even suggested Mayweather threw the fight after footage emerged of him appearing to hold Paul up rather than letting him fall to the floor.

The clip during the fight shows an exhausted Paul stepping back toward the ropes, before the social media sensation looked to thrust out a heavy right hand.

Mayweather was able to evade the hook with ease and responded with a blow of his own, crashing into Paul’s head. The 26-year-old then slumped forward towards ‘Money’, who promptly unleashed an uppercut.  

The odds were firmly stacked against Paul coming into the clash, and the evening looked to be over for him after he visibly sagged forward on to Mayweather.

However, the clip shows Mayweather appearing to use both his arms to hold up his rival, stopping him from falling and preventing the fight from being stopped early.

And after the video surfaced on social media in the hours following the bout, some fans were left questioning whether Paul had indeed been knocked out by the former world champion boxer.

Paul himself joked that Mayweather may have let him ‘survive’. 

After the bout, he said: ‘This is still one of the greatest moments of my life… damn, I’m happy. You never know with this guy, I’m going to go home thinking, “Yo, did Floyd let me survive?”.’
