I thought Logan showed a tremendous amount of improvement from his last fight. The fact he survived all rounds is a true testament to his training camp. He also showed an innate ability to be relaxed in the ring, especially against the best there is. – Zach Hirsch on Logan Paul post-fight.
It was as if there was a projector playing in Zach’s mind that replayed the epic showdown between YouTube Star Logan Paul and arguably the greatest boxer of this time period, Floyd Mayweather, as he dissected each key moment in the fight – pointing out strengths and weaknesses while giving credit to both athletes accordingly.
