Floyd Mawyeather is being accused of fixing his fight with Logan Paul and not actually giving the YouTube star all he had.

Fans have been losing it online hours after the event ended with Paul not being knocked out. No winner was announced because it was only an exhibition fight but that hasn't stopped people from speculating about whether the entire spectacle was nothing but a scripted show.

Paul surprisingly survived eight rounds and ended standing on his two feet.

After the fight, Mayweather said of the social media star, "He's better than I thought he was ... I was surprised by him tonight. Good work. Good little guy."

Fans believe Mayweather did just that. The professional boxer, who was paid $10 million minimum for the event, didn't really bring it like he is known to do during his bouts.

Fans believe they watched Mayweather hold up his opponent instead of letting him fall to the floor. They are upset because they think Mayweather pulled Paul up in an attempt to keep the fight going longer.

The event was not sanctioned by the Florida State Boxing Commission due to the height difference in the two men. The fight was promoted by Mayweather Promotions owned by Floyd.

To make matters worse, fans who tuned in had to watch Logan's brother Jake Paul hamming it up for the camera the entire time.
