Hugging. We paid to watch two men hugging’: Boxing fans take to Twitter with hilarious memes after watching Logan Paul go the distance with Floyd Mayweather… as some bemoan lack of action in money-spinning exhibition
Boxing fans took to social media in their droves to post a series of hilarious memes after watching Logan Paul go the distance with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather on Sunday night.
While Paul was celebrating in the aftermath of the fight, some fans were underwhelmed by the lack of action after purchasing the pay-per-view showdown.
Although fight fans got to see the entire eight rounds, many believe the pair ‘just hugged’ throughout, with Mayweather later stating that Paul’s wrestling background made it difficult for him to get his punches in.
And fans were quick to jump on social media to make light of the bout, with one user commenting: ‘Hugging. We paid to watch two men hugging. Not boxing.’
Another mocked the pair up as husband and wife in a wedding photo, while one tweet went viral that depicted the fighters as Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick.
Elsewhere, one Twitter user mocked up a box of Nappies so that it included a picture of the pair clinging onto each other in the ring, with the words ‘little snugglers’ alongside it.
Other social media fans poked fun at Paul’s sweaty physique after a few rounds of the exhibition bout, with one likening him to a wet rodent, while another used a picture of a tired-looking NBA legend LeBron James
