Floyd Mayweather

Floyd “Money” Mayweather is back! He will be returning to the boxing ring for the first time since December 2018, when he took on Tenshin Nasukawa. And, his opponent is none other than YouTube star – Logan Paul. Paul and Floyd had been flirting with the idea of having an exhibition match, ever since November 2019, when Logan Paul tweeted “bring it” posting an image of the odds of him taking on Mayweather. What followed then was a bit of social media trash talking, with Logan Paul even claiming that he would beat Floyd Mayweather in a street fight. Now, the two are all set to face-off in an exhibition bout on the 20th of February next year.

The news was confirmed by both Mayweather and Logan Paul, when they took to their respective social media accounts to share the poster of their match, with the Pay-per-view set to feature on Fanmio.

The PPV costs 24.99 USD

“It’s official @FloydMayweather, Logan Paul tweeted; while Floyd provided the link to the PPV purchase. The early pricing for the bout is 24.99 USD.

Coming to the fight; Logan Paul has a very significant size and reach advantage over the 5 feet 8 inch, Floyd Mayweather. The YouTuber towers at 6 feet 2 inches and is at least 15 kgs heavier than the undefeated boxing great. However, Floyd Mayweather is considered one of the greatest defensive boxers of all time. His defensive style coupled with his lightning quick hands, have made him what he is today. Logan Paul, on the other hand, has fought just one professional boxing fight in his career, against fellow YouTuber KSI, which he eventually lost. Although, this is an exhibition bout, it promises to be a cracker!
