Victor Ortiz likes Logan Paul's chances against Floyd Mayweather. The popular YouTuber -- who holds a 0-1 professional record -- will meet Mayweather in an exhibition boxing match set to take place February 20. Ortiz -- who notably suffered a knockout defeat to Mayweather back in September 2011 -- is a close friend of Paul's and has been helping him in his preparation. And he could do nothing but heap praise as he allegedly watched him knock out three sparring partners. \u201cHoly crap,\u201d Ortiz told MMA Fighting. \u201c... Mind you, these are full-on professional boxers. I sat back in shock and awe. He was so composed and relaxed. He used his reach perfect \u2013 took a little step, hook down the middle, sleep. Night-night. \u201cMy only complaint there is that he didn\u2019t read him a bedtime story.\u201d Of course, training camp stories should always be taken with a pinch of salt. But it doesn't hurt Paul that a former welterweight champion in Ortiz is singing his praises. So much so that he even thinks Paul will give Mayweather trouble. \u201cI know what I know, and I know what I see,\u201d Ortiz said. \u201cWhat I\u2019m saying, in a sense, is that he will give Floyd trouble.\u201d \u201c... He\u2019s a dear friend, and I believe in him. I\u2019m telling you, it\u2019s going to be an interesting fight. I\u2019ve talked to him about Floyd a few times. ... I give him the simple things: \u2018Floyd is Floyd, but you\u2019re unstoppable. You\u2019re on another level.\u2019 I strongly believe Floyd will have trouble. Logan can box, and he has power, reach speed, and he can move now.\u201d Paul A Bigger Threat Than McGregor One would imagine Paul wouldn't trouble Mayweather more than Conor McGregor who ended up suffering a 10th-round TKO defeat when he clashed with "Money" in August 2017. However, Ortiz believes that will be the case. \u201cConor couldn\u2019t do nothing,\u201d Ortiz explained. \u201cI don\u2019t mean to speak bad. Conor\u2019s a heck of a UFC fighter in the octagon, but he has no business in a ring, as opposed to someone like Logan \u2013 Logan learned in a ring. So his stuff is all standup. Everything about Logan is boxing, angles, moving, so it\u2019s two different worlds. I couldn\u2019t tell you what someone like Logan or myself could do in an octagon, but stick to what you know. And Logan, he knows boxing right now. \u201c... McGregor\u2019s a hell of a boxer. I\u2019m a huge fan of McGregor. I\u2019ve always pulled for Conor, except for when he fought Floyd. Floyd shut it down when Floyd was done playing. He said, \u2018OK, I just gave the world a show. I\u2019m going to put you night night.\u2019 Did he catch him a couple of times? Absolutely. It\u2019s a fight, for god\u2019s sake. But Floyd was going to shut it down when Floyd wanted to.\u201d While all that is debatable, Paul certainly has much superior size and reach on Mayweather than McGregor did. Whether he has the accuracy will be known in just over two months. \u201c found a YouTuber \u2013 that sounds easy enough for a 20-time world champion,\u201d Ortiz said. \u201cAlright, let\u2019s beat him up. But what I\u2019ve been watching and seeing is a YouTuber gone professional boxer who puts in hours and hours of work studying films. He\u2019s very disciplined, and he\u2019s working his butt off, and he listens. He has a heck of a coach who\u2019s very knowledgeable and very experienced. I believe it\u2019s a dangerous combo.\u201d \u201cFrom what I see at the gym, I can honestly say Logan can probably hit harder than . Now, who\u2019s more accurate? We\u2019ll see Feb. 20.\u201d Then again, it could just simply be a case of the arguably the greatest defensive boxer of all time schooling a YouTuber-turned-boxer.
