Floyd Mayweather is set to face Logan Paul in their whacky exhibition fight on Sunday June 6.
Logan’s little brother Jake fought and beat former UFC star Ben Askren in a bout and has been winding up Mayweather ahead of this latest showdown.
The unbeaten ring legend, who won all 50 of his fights, has agreed to take on 0-1 YouTuber Paul the slacker, who lost his pro debut to fellow internet sensation KSI in 2019.
It is being billed by event organizers as an ‘eight-round special exhibition.’

“I’m excited, I’m blessed to have this opportunity and I think we’re gonna wow a lot of people.
