Jake Paul convinced brother Logan "won" fight against Floyd Mayweather

Jake Paul believes Logan Paul defeated Floyd Mayweather in the pair's exhibition fight.

Paul made it to eight rounds in the ring with Mayweather, surpassing expectation's many had for the YouTube star heading into last night's event.

Mayweather landed 43 blows on the night compared to Paul’s 28, but was unable to land a knockout blow on his inexperienced competitor.

The pre-agreed rules of this bout ensured that there would be no winner declared, but Jake is convinced his brother did enough for it to be considered a defeat for the 50-0 undefeated star.

"50-1. HOLY F**K," he tweeted.

"MY BROTHER JUST BEAT FLOYD MAYWEATHER."

Mayweather was full of praise for Paul when speaking after the fight as he admitted to underestimating the 26-year-old.

"I had fun. You got to realise that I'm not 21 no more," he said.

"But it's good to move around with these young guys, test my skills – just to have some fun.

"[He was] a great level fighter. Strong, tough. He's better than I thought he was."

When asked about Logan potentially having a successful career, Mayweather said: "As far as with the big guys, the heavyweights, it's going to be kind of hard.
