After rumours of the two being in talks and the pair going back and forth on social media, Mayweather sent the boxing world into overdrive when he announced the special bout on Instagram last night.
The unique match-up is being shown live on pay-per-view on 'FanMio' and already fans can purchase the fight ahead of the showdown on February 20 2021.
At the moment, the bout will cost $24.99 as part of the early pricing section. Anticipating a high demand of pay-per-view ticket sales, the price will then jump up to $39.99 after 1 million has been sold.

$59.99 is the set price from December 29 but those waiting until February 11 will have to fork out a whopping $69.99.
There is also a package for $54.99 that includes the fight, a limited and exclusive Mayweather vs Paul t-shirt and the chance to win a video meet and greet off both fighters.
As of yet, there have been no details as to where the bout will be taking place and if fans will be able to attend the event in person.
50-0 Mayweather's last fight was in an exhibition capacity. On New Year's Eve 2018, 'Money' made a reported $9 million when he decimated Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a Rizin event in Tokyo.
In total it was 139 seconds of work for the five-weight world champion. He danced for the first minute, knocked the then-20-year-old prodigy down three times and made him cry after his corner threw the towel in.
Paul, meanwhile, lost his only ever professional boxing fight in October 2019 when he lost a split decision to YouTube rival KSI at the Staples Center on a card promoted by Matchroom's Eddie Hearn.
His younger brother Jake knocked out former NBA star Nate Robinson on the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr undercard last month and called out Conor McGregor afterwards.
