Floyd Mayweather And Logan Paul Set New Date For Their Fight

Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul will face each other in an exhibition boxing fight on June 5th, although a venue has yet to be decided.

The pair were set for a date in February but it fell through because of 'complications' with the former five weight world champion.

A rearranged date was expected but things went completely quiet however, on Thursday, the Athletic revealed that they will now fight at the beginning of June.

The outlet revealed that the exhibition will take place on Showtime pay-per-view, however there is no guarantee where the fight will take place.

Mayweather took to social media to reveal that Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas and Atlanta were all potential destinations for his second exhibition since retiring.

For his one and only professional fight so far Paul, who lost to YouTube rival KSI in 2019 following their non professional fight a year previous, weighed in at 199.4 lbs.

Mayweather's last fight was against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa but his last non exhibition was against Conor McGregor, when he weighed 149.5 lbs.

The two boxers will obviously not be at the same weight as each other when they meet but they both have a limit they have to adhere to.

The Maverick, as he was billed against KSI, must not exceed a limit of 190 lbs whilst Money can't go over 160 lbs.

The two men are likely to make an obscene amount of money, as the world's most famous boxer takes on one of the most well known social media stars.

Interestingly the exhibition fight will come up against a Triller card. The company, who recently bought Fite TV, have been broadcasting Logan's brother Jake's fights, including his controversial first round stoppage against Ben Askren last weekend.

On June 5th Triller are showing the fight between Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos for the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and The Ring lightweight titles.
