Floyd Mayweather fight with YouTuber Logan Paul reslated for 6 June in Miami

An exhibition match between undefeated former world champion Floyd Mayweather and YouTube star-turned-amateur boxer Logan Paul is back on.

The pair will face off 6 June at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Mayweather announced on his Instagram page on Tuesday, after the match was postponed from its original February date.

“Mayweather Promotions, Fanmio and Showtime Boxing have come together to bring an epic event,” wrote the 44-year-old Mayweather, who boasts a pristine 50-0 record.

The five-weight division world champion last fought professionally in August 2017, when he defeated fiery mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor, who was making his boxing debut.

Paul has a 0-1 record after losing to fellow YouTube personality KSI.

February’s fight will be streamed as a pay-per-view. The first 1m customers will pay $24.99, with the price rising to $69.99 closer to the fight.

Paul should have no problem attracting an audience: he has nearly 22m subscribers on YouTube.
