He even showcased his boxing abilities on a heavy bag. However, will it help him attract the attention of the former five-division world champion? Clearly yes, since Mayweather has also desired for the fight alongside several more exhibitions in 2021.

On his return to boxing, the 43-year-old wants to have numerous appearances. He has also called out Logan Paul’s brother Jake Paul and rapper 50 Cent for in-ring exhibitions. So, it might be a reason why Mayweather has postponed his encounter with Logan Paul.

Floyd Mayweather and his many reasons for delaying the fight

One prime reason can be the advertisement poll, as both the contenders would garner more PPV numbers and popularity with proper advertising of their collision. Being a boxing elite, Mayweather’s stance on facing an Internet superstar is unique. But, a lack of reach can put a dent in their plans of popularizing the event.

Apart from that, fan-attendance is still a confusion for the sporting events. Meanwhile, Mayweather has never fought in a closed arena in his pro career. So, he might have planned to drag the date to appear in front of a packed arena. But, ‘Maverick‘ is desperate for the date, and Mayweather might have to take a call pretty soon.

Logan Paul is certainly putting in the hard yards. Do you see him beating Floyd Mayweather in the upcoming clash?
