Retired former pound-for-pound boxing king Floyd Mayweather Jr. will step back into the ring on June 6 for an exhibition bout with YouTuber Logan Paul at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
It’s a boxing match that nobody necessarily asked for but will happen. And it’s certain that there will be a lot of eyeballs on this fight as the undefeated 44-year-old will give up six inches in height and some considerable size to his 26-year-old opponent, who has an 0-1 in professional boxing matches.
The long-rumored boxing match was originally slated for Feb. 20 but was postponed indefinitely. It has now been rescheduled for June as details on the exhibition continue to trickle out.

Mayweather was last seen in a boxing ring on New Year’s Eve 2018, when he scored a first-round TKO against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition bout. He last competed as a professional in 2017 against MMA superstar Conor McGregor and stopped him in the 10th round to improve to 50-0. His opponent in June will, by far, have the least boxing experience than any of his previous opponents.
Paul is a massive celebrity who made a name for himself on YouTube but has very little boxing experience. He’s had one professional fight and one exhibition, both against fellow YouTuber KSI. The 2018 exhibition ended in a majority draw while KSI won the rematch in November 2019 with a six-round split decision.
It’s clear that this fight has less to do with being competitive than being an entertaining way for both Paul and Mayweather to make money.
Also on the card: former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson, who’s expected to fight another former athlete or celebrity.
