This may be just an exhibition, but the clash between legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather and YouTube star Logan Paul is expected to become one of the biggest fighting events of the summer. The two will participate in a major card event that will be broadcast live on Showtime PPV on Sunday night in Miami Gardens, Florida.
Since TKO’s victory over Connor McGregor in August 2017, Mayweather has not participated in an official game, and this victory puts his career record of 50-0. He played three rounds of exhibition matches with Taekwondo player Tenshin Nasukawa and easily won the first round of TKO. Mayweather insisted that he had retired and just wanted to fight to entertain the fans-although he did express interest in a rematch with McGregor on the media day of Sunday’s game.
As a professional boxer, Paul has a 0-1 record and lost to him, also a YouTuber KSI, in November 2019. His younger brother Jack became a boxer and won three knockout matches in his three professional matches, while Logan focused on playing with Mayweather. He believed he would win 6 inches 50 times bigger than Mayweather. Pound fight.
