Millions turning to the increasingly popular trend, as expected, attracted the attention of Floyd Mayweather Jr., so one of the best boxers in history decided to do an exhibition match with Logan Paul. The fight between a former world champion and Jake Paul's brother, who knocked out Ben Askren last weekend, has been planned for months.
Recall, we were supposed to watch this exhibition on February 20, but those original plans did not materialize and for a while, it seemed that nothing would come of it. But new information has surfaced these days, and even Mayweather has confirmed on Instagram that something is ‘cooking’.
Namely, today the 44-year-old Floyd announced on his profile that the location where we could watch this match is still being considered, and he singled out five cities as the main favorites. Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas, and Atlanta found themselves on Mayweather’s list.
Furthermore, the renowned The Athletic came up with information that the date should be June 5th. It would be Showtime’s PPV, and boxing insider Mike Coppinger also found out through his sources that there will be two different weight limits!
Reportedly, Mayweather will not be allowed to weigh more than 72.6 kilograms, while the upper predicted limit for the noticeably bigger Paul will be 86.2.
Let us also mention that Logan Paul, as a professional boxer, has only one performance behind him, and that was the defeat inflicted on him by his colleague YouTuber Olajide William Olatunji, better known as KSI, by a divided decision of the referees.
If the information about the stated date turns out to be correct, Logan and Floyd will fight on the same day as Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos whose match is organized by Triller Fight Club. The Logan brothers have been attracting a lot of attention lately and it seems that they are succeeding.
Jake is a bit more popular when it comes to "fighting", and for now he has surprised many with his performances. However, most wonder how reliable these victories are. Still, we saw that Paul knows how to fight and that he really is an animal in the ring.
His brother did not become famous in the fights but he has a chance to change that. His opponent really couldn't be harder, and he has almost no theoretical chance of winning. It seems that everything has been reduced to show business, and that the primary goal is to take money and provide for yourself and family.
