There has been a lot of reports about the two being in negotiations for a mega-fight and the claims seem to be real.

On 20 February 2021, the unbeaten, 50-0 boxer will formally take on the YouTuber on pay-per-view.

Paul’s former boxing adversary and fellow YouTuber, KSI, welcomed the news, congratulating Logan on embracing the ‘Money Mayweather’ fight.

It will be a scary toe-to-toe encounter with a bloke who has never lost a fight, but it looks like Paul is excited for the opportunity.

Since retirement from the sport, Mayweather is no stranger to exhibition fights, with the first being on New Year’s Eve 2018 in Tokyo against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
The fighter had made an absolute bank out of the fight and raked in millions of dollars for a single round. He danced for the first minute, knocking down the young prodigy three times and made him cry after the towel had been tossed into his corner.

On June 20, Mayweather told Zab Judah that instead of making a comeback, he will engage in more exhibition fights.

“I got a couple of exhibitions I’m doing,” Mayweather said later on Instagram Live. “It’s paying though.”

Paul, meanwhile is 0-1 in boxing after turning professional for the second fight with YouTube foe KSI, who was victorious at the Staples Center in Los Angeles by split-decision in the six-round fight.

A location is yet to be announced for the special match-up, but further details are to be published in due course.

In recent days, Mayweather and Paul have exchanged shots on social media, with the unbeaten fighter warning the 25-year-old that if they ever locked horns, he will get the same treatment as Conor McGregor did in 2017.

In reaction, Paul clearly wrote “50-1” to the 15-time world champion in a tweet. “sign the f*** contract” sign the contract f**.
