Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul Targeted For June 5 Showtime PPV – MMA Root

There is a new date for the exhibition fight between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul.

Originally scheduled to take place in February, The Athletic reports that the fight will now take place on June 5 and will be a pay-per-view event hosted by Showtime. There is currently no set location for the event. The most surprising fact from the report is that Mayweather is spotting Paul 30 pounds, as the undefeated boxing icon cannot weigh more than 160 pounds. while Paul cannot weigh more than 190 pounds.

From the outside looking in, it appears that all parties involved saw the success of Logan’s brother Jake Paul’s boxing match against Ben Askren over the weekend, and decided to strike while the Paul last name is very hot. The Jake Paul / Ben Askren event is estimated to have generated between 1.2 and 1.6 million purchases, so given the box office success Mayweather has consistently achieved over the years, it would make sense that there was more than enough optimism to everyone. .

Unlike his brother Jake, Logan Paul has yet to win a professional boxing match. On the contrary, he is 0-1 with a loss to English YouTuber KSI. Meanwhile, Floyd Mayweather’s record and experience record is the polar opposite, with “Money Mayweather” undefeated at 50-0.

Even if Paul does the seemingly impossible and upsets Mayweather, that 50-0 pro record will remain intact and Logan will remain unwin, as this is an exhibition fight. The last time Mayweather participated in an exhibition was in 2018 against kickboxer and mixed martial artist Tenshin Nasukawa, in which Mayweather took the TKO in the first round.

As stated, there is no set venue for the event yet, but Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Miami are all up for consideration.
