Alright Logan Paul, time to put ya money where ya mouth is…
After Paul’s brother Jake called out UFC legend Daniel Cormier, it’s pretty obvious that Cormier has no intention to waste his time on the guy.
However, we might have something even better brewing between the Paul brothers.
Hall of Fame boxer, Floyd “Money” Mayweather, has officially agreed to get into the ring with Logan Paul for an exhibition on June 5th, according to The Athletic.
According to Sports Illustrated, the two were originally supposed to fight on February 20th on the live-streaming platform Fanmio, but it was postponed. Now, it’s set to broadcast on Showtime pay per view.
In order to make things a little more fair, Mayweather cannot weigh more than 160, and Paul can’t weigh over 190.
Sports Illustrated’s Jon Wertheim had this to say in a February statement about the fight:
“The Mayweather- Paul fight tale of the tape… comically ill-matched as it might be… is also the tale of the entire sport.
Boxing, the most throwback of sports, has been thoroughly transformed, if not resurrected, by YouTube.”
And he’s not wrong. With social media influencers now, they have the ability to make these kind of things possible. Back in the day, you’d never see a hall of fame boxer fight a celebrity (if you can even call the Paul brothers celebrities), but the times are changing.
All I have to say is, pray for Logan Paul. My guy couldn’t even beat the British rapper KSI in a boxing match, and now he’s about to step in the ring with arguably the best boxer in history?
This could get ugly, but one thing’s for certain… it will be hella entertaining.
