Logan Paul Trolled on Social Media After 'Cringe' Floyd Mayweather Face-Off

Logan Paul has been trolled on social media over his "cringe" face-off with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.

The YouTube star engaged in a heated encounter with the former professional boxer at an event in Miami on Thursday evening.

Paul, 26, did not flinch as he attempted to stare down Mayweather, 44, in a lengthy face-off.

However, when Paul eventually stepped back, Mayweather took one step closer to the social media personality standing his ground.

The pair are set to go head-to-head when they enter the ring in an exhibition match on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

Paul's brother Jake, 24, previously ended up in a scuffle with Mayweather and his entourage after he took the retired boxing legend's hat. The encounter resulted in him walking away with a chipped tooth and black eye.

Referencing the incident with his younger brother on Twitter, Logan Paul then shared a photograph of the face-off, with the caption: "champ left the hat at home."

He also tweeted a series of comments mocking Mayweather, including one which read: "HE TRIED TO KISS ME."

Paul, who is 6ft 2in, went on to ridicule his opponent over his height in a follow-up post. Mayweather's height is 5ft 8in.

"My opponent small", he wrote, adding a laughing face for good measure.

The posts prompted a wave of jokes on social media, with many trolling the YouTuber over his comments.

User @yousof_zaid wrote: "My god the cringe is unreal."

Another user, with the handle @MagicRa60360372 commented: "Wow this is cringe."

@LG_Melts mocked: "Did his breath smell good."

Referencing the height difference between the pair, @Jane2Shoes posted: "The #MayweatherPaul face-off was so bloody cringe!! it actually looked like they were gonna snog!! Was crazy to see the size difference between them aswell..... Only takes 1 punch! #boxing #loganpaul #FloydMayweather."

"Welp!! If that isn't the weirdest face-off I have ever seen," @Aestylo1 said.

Meanwhile, some branded the confrontation a "cute staring contest," while others said it looked awkward.

The clash comes after the pair agreed to lighten the glove size, changing it from 12 ounces to 10 ounces, increasing the chance of a knock-out.

Speaking about the change, Mayweather previously told Sky Sports that there is a "difference between YouTube boxing and elite boxing."

"Well at first, they were talking about 14-ounce gloves, 16-ounce gloves," he added. "From the beginning, I wanted 8-ounce gloves for me as well as Logan Paul."

Paul also threw his support behind the change, adding "that's how I want it."

The Florida State Boxing Commission recently announced the rules for the upcoming match. These include knockouts being made legal, no judges, no headgear and no official winner read.

Mayweather previously told ESPN he would be willing to fight both Logan and Jake Paul.
