Floyd Mayweather Takes On YouTuber Logan Paul In Florida Boxing Match On Sunday Night.

The boxing world may not be ready for the unthinkable on Sunday night, but it’s important to remember that it’s a possibility. That’s when former five-division champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather steps back into the ring for the first time since December 2019 when he takes on YouTuber and social media star Logan Paul in an exhibition match from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul takes place in front of fans on Sunday, June 6, 2021 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida – home of the NFL’s Miami Dolphins.

It will be a very late night for British fight fans, with the fight not beginning until midnight BST.

The main event ring walks are not expected until around 4 am (5 am Spanish time) on Monday morning, though that will obviously depend on the length of the undercard bouts and indeed whatever other entertainment is planned for the show outside of boxing matches.

This divisive bout was originally due to take place in February, only to be postponed as the result of coronavirus restrictions.

It is six years since Mayweather called time on his illustrious and undefeated boxing career, but the former five-weight, 12-time world champion was later tempted back for a money-spinning crossover clash with UFC superstar Conor McGregor and an emphatic win over Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.

Now he’s been enticed back into the sport once more by an eight-round showdown with Paul, a famous YouTuber, internet personality, actor and podcaster who, along with younger brother Jake, has taken up professional boxing.

However, unlike his brother, who gained three straight wins in impressive fashion, Logan’s only pro bout to date came with the six-round rematch of his draw with fellow YouTube star KSI, which he lost via split decision in Los Angeles in November 2019.
