Logan Paul Gives KSI The Edge In Terms Of Punching Power Over Floyd Mayweather

By: Hans Themistode Logan Paul has the unique experience of facing both a world-class boxer and a world-famous YouTuber. The social media star turned de-facto prizefighter, was first introduced to the boxing world on August 25th, 2018. On the night, Paul graced the ring against fellow social media sensation, KSI, in a six-round amateur contest. After their first bout was ruled a majority draw, the two would do it again one year later. This time, they would ditch the protective headgear and have a full-blown sanctioned boxing match. Although their contest was razor tight, Paul would go on to lose a close split decision. To add to his peculiar boxing journey, Paul found himself standing across the ring from one of the greatest boxers of his generation in Floyd Mayweather. The two would tango earlier this year on June 6th, at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida in an eight-round exhibition. While no winner was announced, their showdown was considered an unbelievable success, reportedly totaling more than one million pay-per-view buys. As Paul sat back and reflected on his unusual boxing voyage, he was asked to juxtapose the punching power of both KSI and Mayweather. Without giving it a moment's notice, Paul gave his answer. “KSI for sure, for sure,” said Paul during an interview with True Geordie. “Not even a competition.” Despite being nailed by hard shots throughout, Paul has stated on numerous occasions that he was never in any serious trouble during his showdown against Mayweather. On the contrary, Paul appeared to be on wobbly legs at numerous points throughout his contest against KSI. In the third round, in particular, KSI connected on a hard right hand that saw Paul hit the deck. Fortunately for the social media star, referee Jack Reiss deemed the knockdown a slip. Still, even with that distinction, Paul appeared far more interested in boxing and moving throughout the duration of their contest as opposed to engaging. Having felt the power of both KSI and Mayweather, Paul is simply of the belief that KSI’s punching power is far superior to that of the former five-division world champion. “[Floyd’s] clean shots, I was like, cool, good shot. KSI I’m like, keep my f*cking face away from those hands.” The post Logan Paul Gives KSI The Edge In Terms Of Punching Power Over Floyd Mayweather appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Jose Valdez Decisions Deiner Berrios

By: Sean Crose Premiere Boxing Champions returned to Fox Sports 1 on Saturday with an under the radar card that was broadcast live from the Mechanics Bank Arena in Bakersfield, California. The headliner was a scheduled 10 round lightweight affair featuring the 9-0 Jose Valenzuela as the 26 year old took on the 22-3-1 Deiner Berrios. Valenzuela started off trying to employ his height advantage, as well as his southpaw jab. He also tried working the body. Berrios, however, employed what looked to be a sharp defensive game plan. Berrios went on to try to employ pressure in the second. Valenzuela put his man down in the third, with an accidental strike behind the head. Needless to say, it was not considered a knockdown. Berrios continued to try to counterpunch effectively in the fourth, but Valenzuela was the more active fighter. Neither man threw to great effect in the fifth, but Valenzuela was certainly throwing more than Berrios. Berrios, it seemed was disciplined to a fault. Valenzuela continued to try to put his punches together in the sixth. Berrios became more aggressive in the seventh. His hands were fast, but, as usual, he wasn't throwing enough shots. Berrios landed hard on his man in the eighth, but Valenzuela - after being stunned a moment - was able to regain his composure quickly. By he ninth, it was clear Valenzuela was most likely in the lead, but he had to fight hard constantly to keep the low output Berrios off him, which was naturally draining. With that in mind, Valenzuela and Berrios gave it all they had in the tenth and final round. The judges awarded the win to Valenzuela via a unanimous decision. Earlier in the evening Elon de Jesus fought Rajon Chance to a draw in a controversial featherweight six rounder. The referee took a point from de Jesus in the fourth for hitting after Chance had slipped to the canvas. Extra time was then given to Chance later when he complained he couldn't see after being knocked down in the fifth. The post Jose Valdez Decisions Deiner Berrios appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
