American boxer Floyd Mayweather's fight against YouTube star Logan Paul is back on as far as the latest media reports are concerned.
The exhibition match will be staged on 6 June at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami and the undefeated boxer, Mayweather, announced the date on his Instagram page on Tuesday.
As the bout was postponed from its original February date, the eagerly anticipated fight will pit the experienced boxer against the YouTube star-turned-amateur boxer.
The 44-year-old Mayweather, who also brags a 50-0 match record, will look to win the fight, showever he should not undermine the amateur opponent.
According to KFGO, the five-weight division world champion last fought professionally four years ago, August 2017, when he overcame mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor, who was making his boxing debut.
On the other hand, Paul has a 0-1 record after losing to fellow YouTube personality KSI but the post didn’t shed more details regarding the fight, such as the number of rounds.
IOL reported that the 26-year-old Paul initially ventured into white-collar boxing in a bout with British YouTuber KSI in 2018 that reportedly generated 1.3 million pay-per-view buys around the globe just before a rematch in 2019 in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, Mayweather decided to reconsider retirement and came out for the fight against McGregor after calling it a day in 2015 in an unbeaten spell that lasted for three decades.
It was reported that Mayweather had shown off his exotic £8 million mansion which is fitted with two large swimming pools as well as an underground garage big enough to take 20 cars.
Clips showing the apartment had surfaced online thanks to 21-year-old Devin Haney. who shared several videos during a tour of the legend’s house in Las Vegas, SunSport reported.
Haney was given an incredible walk around the house by the 43-year-old boxing legend and the first clip showed Mayweather’s wardrobe of shoes.
