Logan Paul Finally Breaks Silence Over Whether Floyd Mayweather Fight Is Postponed Or Cancelled
Logan Paul has hit out at critics that his exhibition fight with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather was postponed due to a "lack of interest."
The 25-year-old American star grabbed headlines last December after it emerged that he would step into the squared circle with Mayweather.
However, the Paul-Mayweather fight was cast in doubt after a now-deleted Instagram post suggested that the upcoming event would be pushed back.
The original date for the lucrative fight was set for 20th February, but Paul has now broken his silence and confirmed that the event has been postponed.
The YouTuber slammed the narrative that the fight was delayed due to "lack of interest," saying that there has "not be a fight that's made this much noise the whole year."
Speaking on The Night Shift Gaming, Paul explained: "I've been a little upset with the narrative I'm seeing online, a little f*****g upset, so I'll clear this up.
"It's just stupid. A guy who we had come to test to be a strength and conditioning coach leaked information about the fight.
"As soon as this got out, he said that the fight was being pushed [back], I said, 'F**k we've had a leak from inside our camp, no-one else was supposed to know that.'
"Then the narrative changed to 'Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul fight postponed due to lack of interest.'

"Lack of interest? What the f**k? There's not be a fight that's made this much noise the whole year."
Paul, who fought in a professional boxing fight with YouTube rival KSI in 2019, has undergone a remarkable body transformation in preparation for the Mayweather fight.
And the YouTuber is still committed to seeing the fight happen as he vowed to "beat the s**t out of Floyd Mayweather."
Paul continued: "But yeah, we're figuring it out now. There was some complications with -- actually, I don't know how much I can say.
"I'll say this: the complications are when you are dealing with someone like Floyd Mayweather, who is the most desired highest-paid fighter on the planet and he operates at a certain calibre, and the people around him want to make sure their talent, their fighter is performing at a certain level, there are a lot hoops to jump through.
"There [are] a lot of people involved and you've only got one shot at it so you need to get it absolutely 1,000 per cent right.
"We're just making sure we're doing that. But yeah, I'm still going to beat the s**t out of Floyd Mayweather.
"Or maybe he's going to beat the s**t out of me, who knows? The point is it's still going to happen."
