The possibilities of Floyd Mayweather facing Logan Paul may appear doubtful to the fans, as there are still no official developments to the exhibition matchup. After failing to stage the fight on its primary date, the new fight date is still not public knowledge. However, Logan Paul has clarified that the fight will take place, and has revealed some interesting insights.

While Mayweather has also appeared interested in facing Paul, the pair have reportedly signed the contracts. And with a mutual date on the line, the exhibition will once again be back on the track. Speaking on his podcast ‘Impaulsive’, ‘The Maverick’ confirmed that he and Mayweather have signed a 50-page contract, and there’s no way to duck each other.

“It’s happening, he (Mayweather) promised me and he said it publicly. It’s f*** happening and the contract is signed. A 50-page contract is signed, just like waiting on dates,” said Logan Paul.

That said, the fight venue can also see a change as the initial date of February 20 didn’t work out to be fruitful. Paul and Mayweather were primarily locked in to box each other in a six-round exhibition at Tokyo Dome in Japan. So, a new fight date can come up with a new venue.

Both Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather are Americans and are two of the most popular global superstars. So, the USA would seemingly open up its doors to stage an epic fight event between two of their own. But without an official confirmation, the matchup seems to remain up in the air.

Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather- Gateway for more exhibitions

After announcing his in-ring return against Logan Paul a couple of months ago, Floyd Mayweather has hinted at accepting several more exhibitions this year. Aged 44, the unbeaten five division champions claimed that he was done fighting pro boxers.

However, he is interested in scrapping around with MMA stars and Internet personalities. So, Logan Paul isn’t the sole contender on Mayweather’s radar. Logan Paul’s brother Jake Paul and rapper 50 Cent are also there on Mayweather’s hit list.

But fans will be curious about knowing when Logan Paul and ‘Money’ Mayweather will step through the ropes.
