Mayweather to fight YouTube star Logan Paul on June 6


Former world welterweight king Floyd Mayweather on Tuesday, said  he will face off against YouTube personality Logan Paul in an exhibition bout at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on June 6.


“Logan Paul and I are going to fight at Hard Rock Stadium. Mayweather Promotions, Fanmio, and Showtime will team up to give you an epic event,” Mayweather wrote on Instagram.


A separate post from Mayweather Promotions billed the contest as a “historic crossover event” dubbed “Bragging Rights.”


The announcement gave no further information about specifics of the fight such as number of rounds or what size gloves would be used.


Paul, 26, first ventured into white-collar boxing in a bout with British YouTuber KSI in 2018 that reportedly generated 1.3 million pay per view buys worldwide, before a rematch in 2019 in Los Angeles.


The 44-year-old Mayweather meanwhile has not fought since beating mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor by technical knockout in a money-spinning cross-combat super-fight in Las Vegas in 2017.


Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) came out of retirement for that contest after hanging up his gloves two years earlier after an unbeaten career spanning three decades.
