Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul- What’s on the undercard?

Combat reporter Michael Benson turned to social media to announce the two fights that have already been confirmed for the Showtime PPV. Badou Jack and Jean Pascal will rematch each other on the same night. Meanwhile, Jarrett Hurd vs Luis Arias is also locked in. Now, matchmakers are hunting for a viable contender for Chad Johnson.

Badou Jack vs Jean Pascal 2 will bring two former foes against each other. In 2019, they locked horns in a fight that saw Pascal depart with the WBC (silver) and WBA light heavyweight belts.

Hence, ‘The Ripper’ will have a chance to avenge the loss and add a valuable win under his name. Meanwhile, Pascal hasn’t fought since his win over Badou Jack in 2019. So, we can see the tables turn this time.

In the other bout, the former super welterweight champion, Jarrett Hurd, will fight against Luis Arias. It’s a fight between two rising stars of the era. Arias will try to end his three-fight winless run.

Do you think Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul will be a blockbuster night?
