“I had fun. You have to realize I’m not 21 anymore, but it’s nice to move around with these guys and test my skills just for fun.”
“It was better than I thought,” he admitted, calling Paul “strong and tough.”
“He’s a tough, tough competitor,” Mayweather added. “And he surprised me tonight … Even though he’s not that experienced, he knew how to use his weight and tie me up tonight.”
Paul looked euphoric after going the distance with Mayweather, and said achieving it shows that anything is possible.
“Shit, man, I don’t want anyone to tell me that something is impossible anymore,” Paul said. “The fact that he is here with one of the greatest fighters of all time shows that you can beat the odds.”
