Despite retiring from the sport in 2017, Mayweather hasn’t totally removed boxing from his life. Even today he keeps himself fit and super active like a 20-year-old. Considering these pointers, he was desperate to make his return to the ring via an exhibition encounter to entertain his fans once more. In his last exhibition bout, ‘Pretty Boy’ beat Tenshin Nasukawa with a vicious round 1 T/KO.

Many expected that his clash with Logan Paul wouldn’t materialize, but both their teams wanted to roll out this fight safely, in presence of a packed arena. This will not be a problem now, and the boxing world will get to witness the drawing power of a YouTuber, and a former five-division world champion.
