Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul is on ... again. In December, Mayweather announced on Instagram that the two would fight a February 20th exhibition bout. The fight was subsequently postponed, but now appears to be back on. The two are scheduled to fight on June 6th at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, per Joe Pompliano. UPDATE: Mayweather Promotions has confirmed the fight, per Chris Mannix.
Mayweather is 50-0 in his career and has 27 knockouts. At his peak, he was the pound-for-pound champ and the biggest moneymaker in the fight game. Paul has fought twice, losing one exhibition and then the subsequent pro rematch to British YouTuber KSI. I’m sure it will go swimmingly for Logan Paul.
Paul’s brother Jake is the one to take only slightly more seriously in boxing. He has won three pro fights, although the opponents have included a YouTube personality, retired basketball player Nate Robinson, and an MMA fighter more known for his wrestling skills. But, he has impressed in his three wins, so maybe he can offer a tip or two to his brother to prevent him from an ugly defeat. Unlikely, but you never know I suppose.
