The five-division world champion appears to be a huge NBA fan and wants to expand his stardom to the NBA universe. It is no surprise, his offer comes after the delay of OKC vs Philadelphia 76ers  game. So, ‘Money May’ might have chalked out something unique, considering his fondness over basketball.

The 43-year-old revealed the news via social media and ended his message on a positive note by wishing everyone a safe ‘Mayweather Day’.

The American boxer hasn’t revealed the type of projects he will launch. It was just a teaser from his end, which has amazed most of the combat community. While Mayweather will fight YouTuber Logan Paul on February 20, he has vowed to accept more exhibition fights of this type. So, we can witness some more of the unbeaten puncher in boxing and possibly in NBA.

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul- What can we expect?

The upcoming boxing clash has been billed as a special exhibition and will be held in Tokyo Dome, Japan. However, it won’t be like the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. Instead, it will be an actual fight and both the boxers will get the chance to knock each other out.

6’2” Logan Paul will clearly have an advantage in height and reach over Floyd Mayweather. Nevertheless, ‘The Maverick’ might have a hard time going against a defensive elite.

Being the unbeaten legend of the era, Mayweather will be the favorite inside the squared circle. But boxing is an unpredictable sport, and Logan Paul actually has a chance to be the first man to vanquish ‘Money Mayweather’. Despite all the hatred the event has received, Mayweather vs Paul will still be an exciting contest, and will attract a lot of attention from the fans.
