No one is going to confuse the upcoming Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul fight with some of boxing’s all-time great bouts — i.e. Ali vs. Frazier, Tyson vs. Holyfield — but the June 6 fight between the undefeated boxing champion and YouTube influencer is generating some attention.
Mayweather has a professional career record of 50-0 with 27 knockouts, winning 15 major world titles across five different weight divisions before he retired in 2015 and having faced opponents like Manny Pacquiao, Oscar de la Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Shane Mosely and Victor Ortiz. He came out of retirement in 2017 to fight UFC star Connor McGregor as well.
Paul’s boxing career so far consists of two amateur matches against fellow internet personality KSI. In those matches, Paul earned a draw and a loss by a split decision, giving him a record of 0-1-1. Paul’s taller than Mayweather though, so …
There will be no belt on the line, as the fight is an exhibition between the 44-year-old Mayweather and the 26-year-old Paul.
The June 6 fight will take place at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, but here is how you can watch it at home.
