Floyd Mayweather Announces Special Exhibition Bout With YouTuber Logan Paul

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.

43-year-old Mayweather made a reported $9 million 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.

And in June 20, Mayweather told Zab Judah he would be partaking in more exhibition fights as opposed to making a comeback.

"I got a couple of exhibitions I'm doing," Mayweather said on Instagram Live.

"I got a couple of exhibitions, I'm doing little exhibitions overseas. It's paying though."

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 this unique match-up has yet to be revealed, though further details are to be released in due course.

Mayweather and Paul have traded shots on social media in recent times, with the undefeated boxer warning the 25-year-old he would get the same treatment as Conor McGregor if they locked horns.

In response, Paul simply wrote "50-1" in a tweet to the 15-time world champion.

A few days later and he called Mayweather out - taunting and urging him to "sign the f******* contract".
