Ending his 4-year-long layoff from the action, Floyd Mayweather is ready to return and face YouTuber Logan Paul in an exhibition fight on June 6. However, Mayweather may not perform like it’s an exhibition. The five-division world champion has vowed to stop ‘The Maverick’ when they collide and have already begun his training camp.

The undefeated pugilist has boxed his whole life and doesn’t seem to require special training, especially to fight a celebrity. But Floyd Mayweather’s recent training clips might change a lot of perceptions.

He has been spotted pouring some serious action on punching bags and appears in shape ahead of the high voltage fight. Moreover, Mayweather is training alongside Dennis Douglin and others. So, his wish to land a knockout against Logan Paul might come true. But he might also have to walk an extra mile to attain that.

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul–Preview

One of the biggest mismatches ever in combat sports, Mayweather vs Paul is scheduled to happen on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium and will be available live on the Showtime PPV. As per reports, it will be an 8-rounds exhibition fight, with both men standing at different weight classes.

Hence, it’s better to bill it as an open weight bout, with Floyd Mayweather’s maximum limit at 160 lbs and Logan Paul at 190 lbs. Thus, this sheer difference in weight can play a major role in the matchup. Paul, 26, will have a massive size advantage over Floyd Mayweather, 44.

Besides, Floyd Mayweather will stand over Logan Paul any day, relying on his boxing accolades. So, technically both men will have their chances to win the fight. While Mayweather will put his name and legacy at stake, Paul doesn’t have much to lose.

Boasting a 0-1 record, he isn’t considered an elite boxer. But he will still stage one of the biggest PPV’s ever in the history of the sport. That said, Logan Paul can absolutely shock the world, if he vanquished Floyd Mayweather. But it’s still hard to picture for the fight fans.

How do you see the fight going between Paul and Mayweather?
