Floyd Mayweather isn’t worried about Logan Paul, ahead of their special exhibition clash in February 2021. The event will bring Mayweather out of a 3-year-long retirement; for he has not stepped foot in the ring ever since his TKO win against Conor McGregor in 2017.

While Floyd Mayweather is the ultimate favorite against Logan Paul, some factors might bring an itch to the odds. ‘The Maverick’ is massive. He is taller than Mayweather and also has a serious advantage in weight.

It is no surprise that Logan Paul would try to use those factors in his favor. But Mayweather isn’t intimidated that easily. Instead, he is confident about vanquishing the YouTuber in their upcoming faceoff.

Solomon Engel, the CEO of Fanmio, connected with Sun Sports to shed more light on Mayweather vs Logan Paul. He is the man to set up the fight, putting retirement out of Mayweather’s career once again.

Speaking on the massive size differences, Engel said, “Floyd had no reaction to his size or weight. He had no concern or worry about Logan’s size in this fight.”

It might be an absolute one-sided encounter, but Mayweather vs Paul still can shake PPV records, at least that’s what the matchmakers believe.

Despite all the differences, it’s a fight between two big celebrities. Mayweather is one of the most renowned boxers of all time, and Logan Paul is an Internet sensation.

So, a fight between them will grab attention from every corner of the world. “We do see it breaking the record. We have projections which I don’t want to comment on, but we do see it breaking the record,” said Engel.

He added, “I can tell you we are very bullish on beating that number and possibly by a long shot. We have already sold a great deal of PPVs, which is kind of unheard of early on.”
