0-1 as a professional, Logan Paul is nowhere near the elite boxer. However, he will still face the best of this era in Floyd Mayweather, who has never been beaten in his professional career. While the upcoming fight seems to be an exhibition, it can potentially be one of the biggest events in combat history.

Per the 50-0 boxer’s Instagram post, tickets will go on sale from the next week. Showtime boxing will also telecast the event live on PPV.

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul- More Insight

Initially, ‘Money’ and ‘The Maverick’ were scheduled to meet in February at the Tokyo Dome in Japan. However, the matchup faded away with no official notice. Several media reports cited a lack of interest to be the reason, but neither Mayweather nor Logan Paul clarified it from their end.

Now, the matchup is officially back on track and fight fans can gear up for an interesting battle. While Mayweather remains the superior boxer in-ring, Logan Paul will relish some physical advantages.

He is taller and has a better reach than the undefeated five-division world champion. Moreover, he will be the heavier man in the ring. Hence, all these factors can be favorable for ‘The Maverick’. But, as Mayweather’s in-ring experience is way more than Logan Paul’s, the former champion may not struggle in the fight.

He has competed against umpteen legendary boxers and despite being the one at a disadvantage on paper, Mayweather has always been the winner. Hence, the upcoming fight could be a walk in the park for him.

Who do you think will win on June 6? Logan Paul or Floyd Mayweather?
