The highly-anticipated matchup between former boxing champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather and YouTuber-cum-boxer Logan Paul is just around the corner.
Fans cannot wait to see both famous personalities brawl inside boxing right after a long time. Floyd Mayweather remained unbeaten in his entire pro boxing record. He stood at 50-0 and defeated 16 world champions in his illustrious career.
The boxing legend last fought professionally in an exhibition match against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in December 2018. Mayweather won the contest with a first-round knockout. The 44-year-old will grace the ring after a gap of nearly three years.
On the flip side, Logan Paul is new to the boxing world. Both of his only pro fights were against YouTuber-cum-rapper Olajide “KSI” Olatunji. The first fight ended in a draw and the second match-up belonged to KSI.
In short, Paul is the underdog despite having the advantage on height (6’2) and age (26). He hasn’t yet opened his win account and taking on a legend like Mayweather would be a tough job.
When is the Mayweather vs Logan fight?
The Logan-Mayweather bout was originally fixed for February 20, but the fight was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak in the US.
They will now fight on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Florida’s Miami Gardens.

Brawl between Mayweather and Paul brothers
A huge brawl broke out between Mayweather’s entourage and Jake Paul at the Hard Rock Stadium on Friday. This occurred right after the press conference for the June 6 fight between Mayweather and Logan Paul.
Jake confronted Mayweather on the latter’s statement during the presser that he could take on both Paul brothers at the same time. While arguing about the statement, Jake snatched his hat and tried to run away with it. However, he couldn’t go far as Mayweather and his team got onto him. Logan tried to help his brother, but things had gone worse by then.
A few hours later, Jake was seen on his Instagram story with a black eye and blood in his mouth. He claimed that one of Floyd Mayweather’s bodyguards had punched him during the brawl.
What does Conor McGregor think of YouTube boxing?
Former UFC double champion Conor McGregor is the only MMA fighter to have taken on a prime Mayweather. Although he lost the contest in round 10, he gave a tough time to the boxing legend.
Speaking at an interview, the UFC cash cow backed YouTube boxing.
He said: “If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”
