The national anthem was performed by singer Avery Wilson ahead of the boxing bout between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul in an almost empty Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday, June 6, and Twitter had a lot to laugh about the singer's performance.

Floyd Mayweather was ready to face YouTuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul in an 8-round exhibition bout on June 6, a never-before-seen event in boxing history, and an intriguing match-up between two boxing celebrities from opposite sides of the spectrum.

Paul has challenged former athletes and celebrities to fight him in the ring after he was declared the loser of the face-off after the original face-off ended in a tie. And as is the rule, the national anthem must be sung before ring-time can begin. 

Fans took to Twitter to troll singer-songwriter Avery Wilson for his glitzy performance and all the goof-ups that led to it. "They called Avery Wilson .... “Avery Johnson”. I know he’s pissed because this is the biggest stage he’s been on. Damn! How did they f**k up like that? That’s sucks for him," said a Twitter user. "Avery Johnson? That’s Avery Wilson... I thought Avery Jawnson was finna sing," joked another. "And his name is Avery Wilson. He’s waited his whole life to perform at an event like this and the ring announcer calls him Avery Johnson. That just doesn’t feel right.," said a  third concerned fan. "That man name is Avery Wilson, not Johnson," quipped a fourth.

Others enjoyed his performance and were vocal about it. "Avery Wilson is here with an incredible range an unmatched vocal control. He’s a one of one," said a fan. "Avery Wilson can really fuckingg sing man," said a second. "He's melismatic singer, who has ability to sing a single text while moving btween several notes in succession, its rare, only skillful singers has this kind of agility. the famous melismatic singers: beyonce, whitney houston, john legend, tori kelley, ariana grande, avery wilson," explained a third.
