Floyd Mayweather has announced he will be squaring off against Logan Paul in a “super exhibition” bout.
The two have been heavily rumoured to have been in talks over facing one another in a mega-fight inside the squared circle and the 50-0 boxer has taken to Instagram to confirm the fight will be happening on pay-per-view on 20 February 2021.
This will be the second exhibition fight for Mayweather since retiring. ‘Money’ made easy work of Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Tokyo on New Year’s Eve 2018.
Mayweather made millions for one round whereby he danced for the first minute, knocked the young prodigy down three times, and made him cry after his corner threw the towel in.
Paul, meanwhile, is 0-1 in boxing after turning professional for the second fight with YouTube rival KSI, who was victorious via split-decision in the six-round bout at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
A venue for the unique match-up has yet to be revealed, though further details are to be released in due course.
