Why fight when you can hug?
Floyd Mayweather Jr.
, the former undefeated boxing
champion, was unable to knock out YouTube
personality Logan Paul
in their exhibition fight on Sunday in Miami
, but he connected with his opponent on a different level.
The fighters were chastised by fans
for frequently clinching.
Sure, there was some action between the 44-year-old Mayweather and the 26-year-old Paul, who were 34 pounds lighter:

The Associated Press
reported that Mayweather "outclassed" his opponent in the eight-round match, which was not scored.
Given the abundance of embracing, viewers of the pay-per-view match might have been hit the hardest.
“He used his weight against me and tried to tie me up,” Mayweather explained.
That's one way to look at it.
