Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul? YouTuber boxer backed to fight

Floyd Mayweather Jr. stands in the ring before Errol Spence Jr takes on Mikey Garcia in an IBF World Welterweight Championship bout at AT&T Stadium on 16 March 2019 in Arlington Texas

"Mayweather vs Logan Paul this year!"

Nearly a year after YouTube star Paul challenged the boxing champion to "bring it" to the ring, Mayweather has reportedly agreed to the match.

Mayweather, 43, has since defeated Tenshin Nasukawa, a Japanese kickboxer, in an exhibition bout.

Floyd Mayweather is reportedly set to come out of retirement again to face YouTube star Logan Paul in an exhibition. "No joke... that's boxing insider just told me", Keem wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

Without official confirmation from both sides, it seems that an exhibition fight between Logan Paul and professional boxer Floyd Mayweather is happening, following numerous reports in the media and comments from fellow YouTubers. Logan Paul has tried his hand at professional boxing - couldn't beat the other nobody [that] nobody's ever heard of before.

17% of S. Koreans have confidence in Trump
A median of 15 percent across the nations polled think the Trump administration had done a good job. That number in the country has dropped significantly since previous year from 2017 when it was 75%.

But those occasions would not be as unusual as the prospect of facing Paul, whose YouTube following enabled him to draw enough interest in a boxing match against KSI of the same community.

The insane prospect would mean Mayweather, who retired in 2017 with a 50-0 record as an all-time boxing great, facing an opponent with just one professional fight which was lost.

But a report on TMZ suggested the fight with Paul was "far from a done deal" and Mayweather was leaning towards rejecting the offer.

Regardless, KSI is not convinced by the news, and as the story develops it will become clear whether this fight will actually go ahead, or whether somebody will back out of the contract.

It is also unclear what the weight limit would be, with Mayweather last fighting at the junior middleweight limit of 154lbs, while Paul tipped the scales at 199.4lbs for his cruiserweight contest with KSI.
