Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul is happening in February
YouTuber Logan Paul and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather have struck a deal for a special exhibition match which will be held on February 20th. Floyd Mayweather has a 50-0 undefeated streak in professional boxing.
The fight will be live-streamed as a pay-per-view on Fanmio. Logan Paul has a record of 0-1, his last match was against YouTuber KSI which Logan lost. Well, it may seem like a very unevenly matched bout, but then it is more of an event than a serious boxing match.
Floyd Mayweather had his 50th win against UFC star Conor McGregor in 2017 who had never boxed before that fight. The following year he fought kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a widely panned exhibition match, winning by TKO in the first round.
Mayweather ignited the feud by calling out Logan Paul last month on Twitter, saying ‘not the one for the kid games’. Jake Paul responded to Mayweather’s comments on The Daily Beast:
You know, it doesn’t bother me. At the end of the day, he’s like 5-foot-4, so he’s actually the little kid here, and obviously he just wants attention. He’s fifty-something years old. He should be in retirement. So he just wants to get relevancy by talking about the YouTube kids, because we’re the ones popping off right now.
Well Mayweather is now 43 years old and is one of the toughest boxing champions. So this whole situation is surely going to attract a lot of audience. The “early pricing” of $24.99 only applies to the first million PPV sales, with the price rising to $39.99, then $59.99 on December 29th, then $69.99 from February 11th.
