It’s Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Logan Paul fight week. Here’s all the info you need to catch the action on Sunday, June 6, on Showtime pay-per-view.
Arguably the best boxer of all time returns to the ring…sort of. Floyd Mayweather Jr. and social media personality Logan Paul headline a Sunday, June 6, fight card on Showtime pay-per-view. It’s a unique event that combines professional and exhibition bouts in an odd assortment of matchups.
Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) retired undefeated in 2017 after a 21-year professional boxing career. He won titles in five different divisions and beat some of the best fighters in history, including Manny Pacquiao and Canelo Alvarez. At 44 years old, Mayweather has nothing left to prove but is providing some entertainment to fans when he fights the popular Paul in an 8-round exhibition contest.
Paul (0-1) is an athletic 26-year-old but lost in his lone professional boxing bout, which came against fellow social media star KSI. Paul really has no business being in the same ring with Mayweather, but that doesn’t mean that the unorthodox contest between the two won’t be entertaining.
At 6-foot-2, Paul enjoys a 6-inch height advantage over Mayweather and is much bigger, but Mayweather is used to fighting bigger opponents with much more depth and boxing experience. You get the feeling that this is going to be the miss-match that you can’t look away from. It’s an experiment that will either have people cheering or looking away in sympathy for Paul.
