Mike Tyson urges Floyd Mayweather to rematch Manny Pacquiao and asks 'what the f*** is he doing' fighting Logan Paul

MIKE TYSON urged Floyd Mayweather to rematch Manny Pacquiao and asked 'what the f*** is he doing' fighting a much heavier Logan Paul.

Mayweather was outweighed by 34lbs before facing YouTuber Paul in a Miami exhibition bout.

And the size proved telling as he was unable to knock out his larger yet inexperienced novice opponent, who survived all eight rounds.

Heavyweight legend Tyson, who made a comeback of his own last year, is keen to see Mayweather fight on, but only in his weight class.

He said on Instagram: “I think Floyd should keep on trying. I don’t think he should fight a f***ing cruiserweight.

"I think he should continue fighting guys his own weight. What the f*** is he doing? Fight Pacquiao again or something, keep in shape.

"Now that I think about it now, he should have had Paul lose a lot of weight. I was surprised.

"A smart fighter would have made him suffer, made him starve. It was harder than Floyd anticipated, I believe."

Mayweather, 44, admitted after the spectacle bout that he would never fight as a professional again, and poured cold water over another exhibition.

He said:  "As far as me coming back to the sport of boxing, absolutely not. As far as me doing an exhibition again, probably not.”

Tyson, 54, made a return after 15 years out last November, drawing in a similar exhibition with Roy Jones Jr, 52.

And he called for Mayweather to do the same, and predicted he would make more money by facing Pacquiao – who he beat in 2015 – than against someone like Paul.

Tyson explained: "Was he boxing a cruiserweight? How did he train for this? With experience?

"I believe when [Logan] was hitting him, he was hurting him a little bit because he’s not a 160-pound guy. [Logan is] a 190-pounder.

"I think that’s a heavyweight. 190-pounds to me is a heavyweight.

"I think [Mayweather] can learn from this one, fight guys more in his own category as far as weight is concerned.

“I think he’d make more money if he fought Pacquiao again. Floyd didn't make the guy chase him.

"You make the big guy chase you. He needs to fight a guy at more of his weight division, 155-pounds or 160-pounds."
