Logan Paul, Floyd Mayweather Bout Has A Date

Eventually, Logan Paul will fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. We think. And hey, it appears we have a date as to when it will happen.

That date? June 5, according to Mike Coppinger of The Athletic.

It appears the exhibition bout between the boxer (Mayweather) and the YouTuber (the other guy) still doesn’t have a location, though Coppinger reports that multiple sites are under consideration. The list includes Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas and Atlanta.

Of course, that won’t be the only fight worth watching on that day.

“If Mayweather-Paul goes forward on June 5, it will compete head-to-head with the already announced June 5 fight between undisputed lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosas on Triller Fight Club,” Coppinger noted.

Mayweather-Paul will be carried on Showtime pay-per-view.

Mayweather, 44, sports a 50-0 record, but last fought in August 2017, when he eked out a win over MMA star Conor McGregor. Paul, 24, knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson in the second round of a fairly silly exhibition in July 2020, then did the same to MMA champion Ben Askren in the first round of a controversial bout in April.

  1. Is this the part where I point out that Jake Paul — not Logan Paul — fought Nate Robinson and Ben Askren. I know they’re Youtubers, but as a sports journalist, you have a responsibility to get the first names right…
