Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul go head-to-head in the exhibition fight that attracts everyone’s attention for all kinds of reasons. Join us for live updates.
Undefeated retired world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. fights in an exhibition match with YouTuber Logan Paul. They are an odd couple who strangely captivate boxing fans and casual viewers.
Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) hasn’t been in a professional fight since his TKO of Conor McGregor in 2017, but he’s done it on display before. Hears embarrassed kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018.
Paul (0-1) lost his only professional boxing match to fellow YouTuber KSI in 2019 via split decision. In fact, he dropped KSI in round 4, but the points didn’t go his way. The contrast in boxing records and experience is staggering, but Paul’s 6-inch height and 34.5-pound lead over Mayweather gives people something to talk about.
Mayweather has beaten bigger opponents before, but he’s never been with someone as heavy as Paul. Will that matter? Probably not, but it creates a curious sight.
The debate over whether YouTubers and social media influencers are helping or hurting boxing will continue and will likely be a hot topic tonight on boxing’s Twitter, but heavy pay-per-view purchases for Showtime and Fanmio would go a long way. measure to resolve that debate.
Mayweather vs. Paul will take place in a few hours from now on Sunday, June 6, from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL. Coverage begins on Showtime pay-per-view starting at 8 pm ET. Expect Mayweather’s ring walks against Paul to begin between 11-12 p.m. ET. Time is approximate and may start earlier, so check back every now and then.
