Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul: Fight card, PPV price, date, rules, location for the 2021 exhibition match

Showtime Boxing returns to PPV this weekend with an event you won’t want to miss. Undefeated and retired five-division champion Floyd Mayweather is back in an exhibition match against social media influencer Logan Paul on Sunday, June 6, from Miami Gardens, Florida. Mayweather last fought professionally against UFC star Conor McGregor in 2017, but has taken a couple of exhibition matches in his retired time.

Paul has only fought once as a professional, losing a decision to fellow YouTuber KSI. Paul is 6-foot-2 and last fought as a at the 200-pound cruiserweight limit. Compared to Mayweather at 5-foot-8 and roughly 150 pounds, Paul is the much bigger man. He is also 18 years younger than Mayweather.

But standing across from him in the ring will be arguably the most accomplished boxer in the sport’s illustrious history. Mayweather owns a 50-0 record with championships across five weight classes. He also earned a bronze medal at the 1996 Olympics as an amateur with a controversial loss to Serafim Simeonov Todorov of Bulgaria. Paul, on the other hand, lost his only pro bout to date to another YouTube star in KSI.
